Google Scholar Button: easy access to Scholar from any web page
Google Scholar recently released a new browser plug-in called Google Scholar Button. We have just tried it and found it so interesting, we would like to share it with you.
What is the Google Scholar Button?
Suppose you are searching for literature in one of our databases or via Google and you read something about a particular publication. Or you have found an interesting reference in an article or encyclopedia (with no link to the full text). Then select the publication title or the reference and click the Scholar Button at the top of your browser to find the full text in our own collection or on the web.
Suppose you perform a search in Google and get too much hits. Transfer your query from web search to Scholar. Press the Scholar button to see top three results. Click full screen in the lower left of the popup to see them all.
Format references in widely used citation styles. Press the Quote button in the popup to see a formatted reference and copy it into the paper you're writing or export it to RefWorks.
How to install the button:
- Go to Google Scholar;
- Click Settings;
- Click Button on the left side of the screen;
- Click Install Scholar Button to look up papers as you browse;
- Click Add to Chrome (or another browser);
- The button will appear top right of your browser;
The Google Scholar Button is available for Chrome, Firefox and Safari but not for Internet Explorer.
