Google Docs Research Tool: A Review - The Chronicle of Higher Education | librariansonthefly |

The new feature puts a new option in the Tools menu within a Google Doc called “Research.” To use it, you first highlight a word or phrase (or, as in the image below, a large chunk of text like a poem) in the document you’re writing, then click Tools –> Research (or use the keyboard shortcut: Command+Option+R on Mac; Control+Alt+R on Windows). This performs a Google Search on the highlighted words, the results of which pop up in a right-hand sidebar.
