Configure Google Scholar Preferences to work with UC-eLinks

Google Scholar works with University of California's UC-eLinks!

Options for your EndNote Library

Create a link to the article with DOI number = http://dx.doi.org/(input DOI number here)

This will create a link to the article: e.g.:

http://dx.doi.org/10.1186/1472-6920-9-53

The link will work for open access articles, or those to which you or your institution has authorization.

Configure UC-eLinks within Endnote

To use UC-eLinks from within EndNote, make the following modification. Open EndNote:

On the top menu, select Edit | Preferences | Find Full Text (tab)

In the OpenURL Path text box, type in this URL: http://ucelinks.cdlib.org:8888/sfx_local and click OK.

Google Scholar Citations

November 17th, 2011 by Bruce Abbott

Google Scholar has just turned on a new feature (which previously had been in limited beta-testing) that allows authors to compute their citation metrics.
The link to the announcement is:

An example of how an author can collect their articles in an author profile and track their metrics is:

UC Davis licenses several resources which track authors’ research and include additional features:

Are your Google Scholar Preferences set to work with UC-eLinks & EndNote?

August 11th, 2011 by

We’re looking for a 1996 journal article “Blood pressure and flow rate in the giraffe jugular vein.”
So, if you are using Google Scholar to quickly locate an article, make sure you edit your Scholar Preferences to work with UC-eLinks. Through the UC-eLinks in Google Scholar, you will then be able to to reach full text of any articles in library licensed online journals, or locate the call number (shelf location & library) for the print subscription via links to the library catalogs. If we don’t have a license or subscription for the journal, UC Davis students, staff and faculty can request the article from another library via the the request link in the UC-eLinks window.
Work along with the video to make sure your Scholar Preferences are setup for use with both UC-eLinks, along with bibliographic management software such as EndNote, Refworks, Mendeley, etc. The article could also be found via the UC-eLinks in PubMed. Be sure to use the link to PubMed via the Library’s website and login via the VPN if you are off campus.
