Abstract

These scripts and plug-ins enable an EPrints repository to retrieve and store citation counts from Scopus, Web of Science and Google Scholar. All citation data is stored in a dataset called 'citation', which contains a complete history of requests for citation counts. The most recent counts for any given eprint are cached in the 'scopus', 'wos' and 'gscholar' fields of that eprint so that they can be accessed from citation files and export plug-ins.

Requirements

Requires EPrints 3.2. There are currently some issues running this on 3.3. Importing citation counts from Scopus requires a subscription to Scopus and a developer key for the Scopus XML Search API. Importing citation counts from Web of Science requires a subscription to Web of Science and access to Web of Science Web Services Lite. The Web of Science plug-in requires SOAP::Lite to be installed from CPAN, and the Google Scholar plug-in requires WWW::Mechanize::Sleepy.
