Why? Google Scholar Author Profile?
Many people search Google Scholar because it’s easy. Google Scholar indexes “scholarly materials” – it includes a very large number of scholarly databases, but not commercial websites, and not law reports. Google Scholar also indexes books and book chapters. This is good for humanities and social science academics (though not perfect).
You can manually add publications that aren’t already in Google Scholar.
You can export your Google Scholar citations to a spreadsheet, and then add in citations in judgments or government reports etc. to make a more complete record of your citations and impact.
