Three months earlier, I published a preprint version of my paper and it appeared immediately on my Google Scholar account.
Recently, I published my paper in a journal. However, this citation/version has not been on Google Scholar. Thus, only the old preprint version is available on my profile.
Can I manually add an article with the journal citation and then merge it with the preprint version? If my paper get any citations, would these citations appear on my Google Scholar profile?
