Hi! In this video I’m going to show you how
to search Google Scholar. Google Scholar is an alternative to the library search engine Libsearch if you are looking for journal articles or conference papers. You’ll find Google Scholar using this URL: scholar.google.com. Before you begin, you need to change the settings to create a connection to Malmö University library. This gives you access to articles in full text off campus. Click the three horizontal lines in the left corner. Go to “Settings” and “Library links”. Type in “malmo” (with an “o” not an “ö”), make sure the box is checked, and click save. Now it’s time to start searching. Let’s look for texts about marketing strategy in social media. Enter your search terms, e.g. “twitter marketing strategy”. Some articles have links that says “[email protected]”. Click this link. You will be directed to a page like this. Click the link Login using your computer identity. Read the article online or download it as
a PDF. Let’s go back to Google Scholar. To cite an article, click the citation marks. Copy and paste
the citation into your document or export it into Refworks. You will also find related
articles and articles that cite this article. Limit your search in different ways Exclude patents and citations, sort by date instead of relevance limit to articles published within a certain time period. Good luck! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask the library. We’re always happy to help!
