One of my papers is only published as part of a thesis by compilation by another student.
Can I claim citations of their thesis as citations of my paper?
Is there some way I can instruct google scholar that my paper is inside of that thesis?
Clarification: I am first author on the paper. The other student is a co-author. I allowed him to publish the paper in his thesis. The other student is from another university. For a number of year, his colleagues (who I do not know) would sometimes cite our paper. After he graduated, they choose to cite his thesis instead. I cannot fault them for this, but am a bit sad to not be receiving any more citations on this paper.
