Here are a few greasemonkey scripts I wrote to make browsing journal articles easier (most are specific to Macquarie University, but could be easily modified for another institution. To install them on Firefox, you need to first install greasemonkey. On Google chrome, you should just be able to install them. If you like them, please leave me a review on userscripts.org, where they are hosted.
- Psycnet to Macquarie - when searching for articles, I have often reached the APA website (psycnet). However, Macquarie University only has access to these journals via ovid, not directly from psycnet. This extension will rewrite the DOI link on psycnet pages to point to the Macquarie DOI resolver, which in turn will give you a link to the article on ovid where you can view the fulltext. This will probably only work if you are Macquarie or have a library login.
- Ovid straight to pdf - a pet peeve of mine is journal website that show the pdf in a frame surrounded by mostly useless information. This makes the pdf hard to save using zotero, and generally a pain to read. This script for the ovid website make the pdf use the whole window rather than being stuck in a frame.
- MQ Proxy redirector For a number of journal websites, this replaces the URL such that it goes throug the Macquarie University library website, allowing access to the fulltext of the articles (when appropriate). You need a library login in order to get through to the website. Zotero has a similar feature built in. This does not requires logging into the VPN (if you do log into the VPN, don't use this script!)
