  • a drop-down with a selection of Google Scholar search results matching exactly the publication title;
  • a link to Google Scholar search results.

WARNING: The extension can stop working at any time, depending on the changes in the page structure of the digital library web pages or in Google Scholar.

Great and useful. Everything's awesome, right from the required security settings to the UI. Does anyone know if there's similar extensions for some of the PDF readers? Like, it'll be really useful to hover my mouse over a citation, and have the citation's abstract pop-out.
