When you perform a search on Google Scholar, is there any detailed explanation of how Google orders the results?
I believe it uses this
"Google Scholar aims to rank documents the way researchers do, weighing the full text of each document, where it was published, who it was written by, as well as how often and how recently it has been cited in other scholarly literature." About google scholar
For more detailed answer,
"Google Scholar also strengthens the Matthew Effect: articles with many citations will be more likely to be displayed in a top position, get more readers and receive more citations, which then consolidate their lead over articles that are cited less often."
