New Google Scholar Button

If you're a fan of Google Scholar you may like to try the new Google Scholar button.  It allows you to check for scholarly articles via Google Scholar as you browse the web. Just highlight any article reference while searching, then use the blue icon which will inform you if the article is available via Google Scholar and it it's an open access article. Other functionality includes:
- Find full text on the web or in your institute's library. Select the title of the paper on the page you're reading, and click the Scholar button to find it.

- 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.

The GS button can be installed on Chrome or Firefox.
