Tools that work well with ASReview: Google Scholar Button
If you are screening in ASReview, you may want to find more information on the title on your screen. The abstract could be missing, or you quickly want to verify something in the full text. To directly lookup the article you can use the Google Scholar Button.
What does the Google scholar extension do?
The Google Scholar Button comes as an extension or add-on for most browsers, at least for Firefox, Chrome and Edge. You can also find it via the settings of your Google Scholar account. An account is not necessary for the extension to work.
The extension checks if there’s a link from the article displayed in your browser window to a paper that’s also available via Google Scholar. This works sort of automatically in most cases, and if not you can ‘help’ Google by selecting the title yourself before clicking.
If a match is found, a new smaller window pops up with the title, abstract and some additional info. If you need a quick citation for an e-mail or text, use the ” button. There is a link to articles that have cited the article, the Cited by .. there’s a link to similar articles via Related articles and there’s a link to alternative versions via All n versions. These alternative versions can lead to an openly archived PDF if you don´t have access via your institution.
