Google Scholar Profiles API

Our Google Scholar Profiles API allows you to scrape profile results from the Google Scholar Profiles search page. The API is accessed through the following endpoint: /search?engine=google_scholar_profiles. A user may query the following: https://serpapi.com/search?engine=google_scholar_profiles utilizing a GET request. Head to the playground for a live and interactive demo.

API Parameters

Search Query

mauthors

Required

Parameter defines the author you want to search for. You can also use helpers in your query such as: label:.

Localization

hl

Optional

Parameter defines the language to use for the Google search. It's a two-letter language code. (e.g., en for English, es for Spanish, or fr for French) Head to the Google languages for a full list of supported Google languages.

Pagination

after_author

Optional

Parameter defines the next page token. It is used for retrieving the next page results. The parameter has the precedence over before_author parameter.

before_author

Optional

Parameter defines the previous page token. It is used for retrieving the previous page results.

Serpapi Parameters

engine

Required

Set parameter to google_scholar_profiles to use the Google Scholar Profiles API engine.

no_cache

Optional

Parameter will force SerpApi to fetch the Google Scholar Profiles results even if a cached version is already present. A cache is served only if the query and all parameters are exactly the same. Cache expires after 1h. Cached searches are free, and are not counted towards your searches per month. It can be set to false (default) to allow results from the cache, or true to disallow results from the cache. no_cache and async parameters should not be used together.

async

Optional

Parameter defines the way you want to submit your search to SerpApi. It can be set to false (default) to open an HTTP connection and keep it open until you got your search results, or true to just submit your search to SerpApi and retrieve them later. In this case, you'll need to use our Searches Archive API to retrieve your results. async and no_cache parameters should not be used together. async should not be used on accounts with Ludicrous Speed enabled.

api_key

Required

Parameter defines the SerpApi private key to use.

output

Optional

Parameter defines the final output you want. It can be set to json (default) to get a structured JSON of the results, or html to get the raw html retrieved.

API Results

JSON Results

JSON output includes structured data for Scholar Profiles results.

A search status is accessible through search_metadata.status. It flows this way: Processing -> Success || Error. If a search has failed, error will contain an error message. search_metadata.id is the search ID inside SerpApi.

HTML Results

HTML output is useful to debug JSON results or support features not supported yet by SerpApi.
HTML output gives you the raw HTML results from Google Scholar Profiles page.
