Publish or Perish app

Good morning readers

After doing some research using Scopus and WoS, now it’s my turn to show you some world of wonder using free indexing services like Google Scholar (GS) and Microsoft Academic (MSA). We know both index long a go, but perhaps some of us still asking the same question, “is there an client app to extract data from GS or MSA?”

Yes there is. Thanks to Anne-Wil Harzing that initiate the effort to write Publish or Perish software 10 years a go. It’s now in version 5.

About the author

My current focus is how to provide the hydrostratigraphy of volcanic aquifers in Bandung area. The research is based on environmental isotope measurement in groundwater and morphometry. My work consists of hydrochemical measurements. I am using multivariate statistical methods to provides more quantitative foundation for the analysis and more insight into the groundwater behavior, especially its interaction with surface water. I use open source apps like R and Python to do the job. In my spare time, I also have a side project to promote open science in Indonesia's research workflow. One of my current focus is promoting INARxiv, as the first preprint server of Indonesia ( and serving as ORCID and OSF ( ambassador. Research interest: Hydrochemistry, multivariate analysis, and R programming. Blog:, (
