Google Scholar Citations open to all!

Use Google Scholar Citation to
  • Track citations to your publications 
  • View publications by colleagues 
  • Appear in Google Scholar search results
From the announcement:
Here’s how it works. You can quickly identify which articles are yours, by selecting one or more groups of articles that are computed statistically. Then, we collect citations to your articles, graph them over time, and compute your citation metrics - the widely used h-index; the i-10 index, which is simply the number of articles with at least ten citations; and, of course, the total number of citations to your articles. Each metric is computed over all citations and also over citations in articles published in the last five years.
