Commonly Requested - Google Scholar

What does it do?

  • Google Scholar is a scholarly works indexing system and one of the most heavily used systems for the initial searches for scholarly work. Users can save items that they search for, and faculty can build profiles in Google Scholar that allow them to see not only a collection of the works that Google thinks belong to them but also some common calculated bibliometrics.
  • This is one of the most commonly requested integrations for scholarly work but Google's licensing explicitly forbids any bulk download or scraping of scholarly work off of their site.

How to have it enabled?

It is only possible to import from Google Scholar using BibTex file transfer by an individual faculty member, so BibTex file transfer has to be enabled.
