    Hello everyone,

    Google Scholar can be an interesting addition to the Plymouth University (PU) on-line library for searching and getting published articles and other publications. Google Scholar search results usually finds some articles where the full text is publicly available (as a pdf) but for most results, the full texts are also available through the PU Institutional login.

    I have already in this forum a couple of posts about how to retrieve publications through the PU library (you can SEARCH THIS FORUM with keyword ‘Library’ and user ‘Carlos Martins’), and now I’m including attached a step by step tutorial on how to do it through Google Scholar.

    I hope that this can be useful!

    I also use it to see how widely cited a particular article is, and for a quick way to get hold of a pre-formatted bibliographic entry. NOTE: The automatic Harvard style it offers is very slightly different to the one in the uni guides here, so it needs adjusting slightly, but still quite quick.

    Just to complete Jennifer’s post, clicking the double commas citation symbol “” under each article, returns the citation in different referencing styles.

    Although the Harvard style presented is slightly different from the one on the referencing guide included in the TLP, there are some variations within the Harvard style and is perfectly acceptable to use the format presented in Google Scholar.
