Shortcut to full text articles with the Google Scholar Chrome Button

If you use Google Chrome, the Google Scholar extension allows you to highlight the title of an article on a web page and then check for full text, both on the web or via Swansea University’s subscriptions.

The button in action from one of our staff web pages:

The “iGetIt@Swansea University” link in the box will route you to the full text if the University has a subscription.

Get the extension here:

To link up to Swansea’s journal subscriptions, you will need to set up a “Library Link” on the Google Scholar settings. More info on this in our guide to using Google Scholar (PDF). Contact us ( if you need any help!
