We have hired a programmer to fix the Google Scholar indexing. It is a work in progress, but it is almost fixed for the ODP journal as of now. This should make indexing much faster as Google Scholar does not have to rely on the formatting fitting their requirements. If we can confirm that it works well, then we can revert to not having so stringent formatting requirements to authors.
The metatags for Google Scholar has been made. Now we will have to wait a few days to see if it works as it should.
Well, meta-tags did not fix things.

After looking at the data, I noticed that only a single paper was indexed and that it was the same paper that had the PDF file uploaded directly to the Wordpress installation, not just linking to the copy on the forum. After that, I uploaded the PDF for another paper, and it too is now indexed by Scholar. It seems the theory is right.

I have thus updated all the remaining papers for both journals. Hopefully, they will soon be indexed.
My articles are now indexed as well. Yours should be too.

If one searches on Google Scholar (GS) for the journal names, one will see that not all articles are indexed yet.

There are 10 results, of which 1 doesn't belong there. We pushed it as a test case before settling on our journal structure, but GS won't forget it even though we removed it half a year ago or so.

Anyway, there are currently 13 published papers in ODP, 9 of which are on GS. That's about 70%.

The papers not listed are:

http://openpsych.net/ODP/2014/07/parents...sat-score/

http://openpsych.net/ODP/2014/04/intelli...-matrices/

I will ask Google to index these webpages today, see if that works.
Google Scholar already lists John and my unpublished race x heritability paper, while my published X-factor paper is not listed.
Google Scholar works in mysterious ways. I will see if I can prevent it from indexing the submission forums while letting the rest thru.
Google scholar has indexed two articles:

Genetic and Environmental Determinants of IQ in Black, White, and Hispanic Americans: A Meta-analysis
Genetic and Environmental Determinants of IQ in Black, White, and Hispanic Americans: A Meta-analysis and New Analysis

The first one, of course, is a draft. But no one can know that, if the authors don't write it. So, that's annoying. I think the editors of the journals should require the authors to write it when it's a draft version. Especially, if the paper get a new title, and google scholar indexed the old one, I'm not even sure it can be removed from the search engine now.

The following articles are still invisible in google scholar :

Ethnic/Race Differences in Aptitude by Generation in the United States: An Exploratory Meta-analysis
Intelligence in Jordan: Norms for the Standard Progressive Matrices
Parents’ Income is a Poor Predictor of SAT Score
Authors can merge articles on Google Scholar. They can also delete them entirely which prevent this from being an issue at all.

I have an idea.

When I typed :

Genetic and Environmental Determinants of IQ in Black, White, and Hispanic Americans: A Meta-analysis and New Analysis

Google Scholar referenced "Fuerst J." as the author. But Dalliard does not appear. Also, Dalliard's paper on Kaplan is not visible either. And the paper of nooffensebut is still not visible either. These have one thing in common. The name has only one word, so it is not indexed. Is it really due to this ?

Then, it remains one anomaly.

Quote:Intelligence in Jordan: Norms for the Standard Progressive Matrices

I was able to find that link and this one. So maybe that's the explanation ?
