Overview

Supercharge your paper reading: follow references, skim outline, jump to figures, cite and save.

When you install Scholar Reader, PDFs on all sites will have a new look in Chrome. To make this happen, Chrome will ask for permissions to read and change data on all sites. Scholar Reader makes no changes other than the presentation of PDFs. • Preview references as you read. Click the in-text citation to see a summary and find the PDF. • Scan a table of contents. Interested in methods, results, or discussion? Click the section to go straight to it. • Click in-text figure mentions to see the figure and the back button to keep reading. • Make it right for your eyes with light, dark, and night modes. • Copy and paste common citation formats without leaving the paper. • Save articles to your Scholar Library to read or cite later. By installing this extension, you agree to the Google Terms of Service and Privacy Policy at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/.

The night reading mode exists, which is good, but it is low contrast. The page is a glowing light gray, with somewhat lighter gray text. I find it hard to look at. The page needs to be black. Text should be white or a little off white.

This is already better than the default PDF reader. Please edit the tab title to be the document's title instead of the file path!

The functionality for looking up references is amazing. Just click on the number in the text, a tooltip opens with the Google Scholar links. Extremely fast and convenient. If it is a multiple reference, you get access to each of them with arrows to see the next. Really really well thought-out. Missing two stars because it needs the ability to highlight, and annotate!! And then it will become my default PDF reader for papers.
