"Publish or Perish" is a free software program developed by Prof. Anne-Wil Harzing, from the University of Melbourne. It retrieves and calculates citation and impact statistics of scholarly publications, based on citation data from Google Scholar.
This software analyses citations for conference papers, doctoral dissertations, master’s theses, books and book chapters, reports and publications from your website, not available in Web of Science.
Publish and Perish generates various citation metrics, including the h-index. This information is particularly helpful to researchers seeking promotion, tenure, and research grants. Citations can be exported to Excel, EndNote & Ref Manager. Citation statistics can be further manipulated in Excel to produce graphs similar to the citation reports in Web of Science.
