The name of my article is Hominin interbreeding and the evolution of human variation and it is referenced in the book "Ingenious: The Unintended Cost of Human Innovation" But this does not appear on my google scholar citations page.


I am not familiar with how google scholar works, so I did send a message to them through the google scholar contact form.

Does it generally take a lot of time for google scholar to pick up citations from books? or is there another reason for this?

  • Welcome to academia.SE. Google scholar is generally not fast, so you should add some time information to the question.

They do not accept emails and there is no customer service. To get your article to appear, host it as a PDF on a university server, or if not available, at a repository like the Open Science Framework (osf.io). Google will scrape it within a few days, generally. You can also add articles manually to a Google Scholar profile. Also, see many similar posts in this forum: Why do papers sometimes appear unlinked in Google Scholar?
