google-scholar-extended

nodejs module for searching google scholar and listing profile information

getting started

  1. npm install google-scholar-extended --save
  2. require the module let scholar = require('google-scholar-extended')
  3. enter a search term
'use strict'

let scholar = require('google-scholar-extended')

scholar.search('chairmouse')
  .then(resultsObj => {
    console.log(resultsObj)
  })

If you would prefer to get all results at once rather than paginated, you can use scholar.all rather than scholar.search to retrieve all of the results. as in:

'use strict'

let scholar = require('google-scholar-extended')

scholar.all('chairmouse')
  .then(resultsObj => {
    console.log(resultsObj) // this will have all ~112 results
  })

Get the information contained in a Google Scholar profile:

'use strict'

let scholar = require('google-scholar-extended')

scholar.profile('ukfCWkAAAAAJ')
  .then(resultsObj => {
    console.log(resultsObj)
  })

resultsObj

the results obj has 4 fields:

  • count: the approximate number of results Google Scholar found for your query
  • results: an array of result objects
    • the result abject has several fields:
      • title
      • url
      • authors
      • description (search only)
      • citedCount
      • citedUrl
      • relatedUrl (search only)
      • venue (profile only)
      • year (profile only)
  • nextUrl: (search only) the URL for the next set of results from google scholar
  • prevUrl: (search only) the URL for the previous set of results from google scholar
  • next: (search only) function that returns a promise which will resolve to a resultsObj containing the next results
  • previous: (search only) function that returns a promise which will resolve to a resultsObj containing the previous results
