Project description

https://img.shields.io/pypi/v/gsch.svg https://img.shields.io/travis/jun-harashima/gsch.svg

gsch is a tool for handling paper information in a Google Scholar results page.

Quick Start

To install gsch, run this command in your terminal:

$ pip install gsch

Using gsch, you can handle paper information in a Google Scholar results page as follows:

from gsch.agent import Agent
from gsch.paper import Paper

agent = Agent()
papers = agent.search(['some', 'topic'])

For a given query, agent obtains 10 search results on Google Scholar. Please be careful not to send too many requests to the service because there is a query limit.

agent organizes the search results into the Paper instances, each of which consists of the following attributes:

  • title
  • authors
  • year
  • cited_by
  • url
  • snippets

You will often obtain better results as follows:

from gsch.option import Option

agent = Agent()
option = Option(year_low=2017)
papers = agent.search(['some', 'topic'], option)

In this case, papers consists of papers that have been published since 2017. Like this, you can use the following options:

  • year_low: if you set year_low=2017, you obtain papers that have been published since 2017
  • year_high: if you set year_high=2017, you obtain papers that have been published by 2017
  • start: if you set start=10, you obtain papers that are ranked from 11 to 20
