Google Scholar allows me to see which scientific papers cite my scientific papers. However, it does not order them according to date so I cannot easily identify the most recent papers with cite to me.One way to somehow identify recent citations is to use the “as_ylo” parameter available in the advanced search. With as_ylo=2009 only the papers published in 2009 are shown to the given query. Combining that with a negative ‘author:’ query gets you some of the way, e.g., with “Nielsen FA” -author:”FA Nielsen” (included as_ylo=2009) I find papers from 2009 mentioning ‘Nielsen FA’ that are not authored by me. To get a higher retrieval rate I list some of the different variations of my name in the query. The real query is then (abbreviated) “Nielsen FA” OR … -author:”FA Nielsen” …! As the year progresses one gets more and more citations and it becomes difficult to identify the new ones. Using the real-time search in the standard Google Web search one may try an alternative way. Restricting the search to PDF files and real-time search for past month data may result in newer data, – but probably also lacking papers from publishers letting Google Scholar in but Google Web out: “Nielsen FA” OR … filetype:pdf It is possible that Google Alerts also can help.
