English abstract

The validity of Google Scholar as a service that reflects properly the scientific output of a university is analyzed, comparing its coverage of Spanish public universities with that of Scopus. The presence and evolution of scientific documentation on the websites of the Spanish public universities from January to July (both months inclusive) 2009 is also studied. The results show that, despite finding some interrelationship between Scholar and Scopus concerning the productivity of institutions, there are large differences in the total results that override the latter as a valid reflection of university productivity. Finally, Scholar shows positive, albeit modest, growth during the studied period for most university websites analyzed.

Spanish abstract

Se estudia la validez de Google Scholar como servicio que refleja adecuadamente la producción científica de una universidad, comparando su cobertura de las universidades públicas españolas con la mostrada por Scopus. Se analiza la presencia y evolución de la documentación científica de las sedes web de estas universidades desde enero hasta julio (ambos meses incluidos) de 2009. Los resultados muestran que, pese a encontrar cierta interrelación en la productividad de las instituciones en Scopus y Scholar, entre ambos sistemas existen grandes diferencias en los resultados totales que invalidan a este último como un reflejo válido de la producción universitaria. Finalmente, la mayoría de las webs universitarias analizadas presentan un crecimiento positivo aunque moderado en Scholar, durante el período estudiado.
