A commentator on my blog brought up this nice idea of how to use the GScholarScraper function for bibliometrics.. I altered the code a little bit which enables to set a year since when results should be returned and added a field to the output collecting the year of publication. With this you can simply do something like this:
input <- "intitle:metapopulation" df <- GScholar_Scraper(input, since = 1980, citation = 1) nrow(df) hist(df$YEAR, xlab = "Year", main = "Frequency of Publications with\n\"METAPOPULATION\" in Title")
