Examining the html page source for Monash's theses in figshare, I noticed that the tag citation_dissertation_institution is lacking in the page header tags. The presence of this tag is explicitly recommended in the Inclusion Guidelines for Webmasters. Section E of point 2. When I added this tag to Monash's previous institutional repository it had a marked effect on adding thesis records to Google Scholar. Can this metadata element be included in the revamp of metadata that has be promised.
We checked this out, good idea. We'll do it asap.
