When searching with author limited to address, you sometimes loose articles because of inconsistent implementation of addresses as we already have shown in a previous posting. We tested Web of Science and Scopus. In Google Scholar there is no option for address limit.

By searching for example au=haglin l NOT ad=umea in Advanced Search in Web of Science and haglin l (author field) AND NOT umea (affiliations field) in Scopus, the articles lacking correct addresses were easily found. Then we counted the citations in these articles that would be lost when limited to address search.

Note: The example is based on searching in author in General Search, not Cited ref search.
