My thesis has been archived on the repository of my university with restricted access three weeks ago. By “archived” I mean that it has been assigned an identifier online.
So far, however, I found that the item cannot be detected by Google Scholar. When I try to add it in my Google Scholar profile automatically my thesis cannot be found by Google, and when I add it manually in the profile there is no field for me to add the link of the identifier.
I understand that normally it will take from a few days to several weeks to find a new paper and include it in Google. My question is: in my case (thesis archived on the restricted server) if I could find it later until Google indexes my thesis? If yes, how long I should wait for? If not, how can I show an identifier for the thesis item in my Scholar profile?
Thank you very much!
