Only received the results of the last query?
CIDS is limited to one query per email.
CIDS takes too long?
Due to Google Scholar limitations our script takes about one minute per paper.
How CIDS identifies self-citations?
CIDS uses the self-citation policy of CiteSeer. CIDS currently marks a citation as a self-citation if at least one of the author's names is located in the header of the indexed paper.
Results contain errors?
The accuracy depends on the ability of Scholar's method to correctly identify the names of the authors in the header of the paper. The method is robust in general, since it is relatively simple to automatically detect the header of an paper, with a small error margin. However, we advise you to manually curate the results if they are to be used in an official document (e.g. curriculum vitae).
