**Sigh** I got blocked by @Google Scholar for doing too many searches on "kleine planeten" (which means "small planets" in German), and I've done everything I can to get unblocked. To meet the journal editor's deadline I have to do the research via a phone. #ScientistProblems
2/ Problem solved. Thank you all for the great suggestions! When I tried it in Google's Chrome browser, Google offered me a recaptcha to prove I am not a robot. It didn't offer me that as long as I was using Firefox. #GoodToKnow
3/ I should add, Google Scholar thought I was a robot because I use it so dang much, because it is amazing for searching in particular years & languages for specific phrases, parsing results narrowly for statistical insight. New science is possible that never was before...
4/ In other words, it confused a scientist for a robot because scientists are... well... similar to robots. 🤓🤖😂
5/ A few hours later.... AARGH! It did it again. And it offers me no recaptcha this time to prove I'm not a robot. How can I complete this research?
