Search with Google Scholar Service

Download this service (53 KB; might require Snow Leopard), unzip it,¬†and install it in ~/Library/Services. Then select some text, right-click the selection, and choose “Search with Google Scholar” to find related articles. If the text you selected is the title of a paper, chances are the first result will include exactly what you want: a PDF copy of the paper, or at least an abstract.

This service is shamelessly derived from the “Show Address in Google Maps” service that ships with Mac OS X 10.6.

Thank you for this very useful tool. Now I don’t have to copy the text in google, open a separate scholar tab and paste in there.
