Link to Google Scholar now available via SFX

has a new ‘Web Search’ feature which allows users to carry out a related search on Google Scholar. There are four options.

1. Article title: search terms (full article title) are input automatically.
2. Author: change the drop down menu to author and the author is input automatically so you can search for articles by that author.
3. Journal title: change the drop down menu to this option and the journal title is input into the search box.
4. The fourth option is to input your own keywords.

This new Web Search feature only appears when there are no full text links available via the menu. It allows users to view the abstract of the article, or if available, an open access copy via an institutional repository.

(‘What is SFX?’ you may well be asking: Well with staff & students at Imperial College can access the full text to journal articles from databases the Library subscribes to or from the Library Catalogue. Whenever you see the button, simply click on it to see if the full text to an item is available.)
