Search Plugins

If anyone’s interested I’ve updated my Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy Search plugin. It will now work in any and all ‘Open Search’ enabled browsers such as Firefox 2.0+ and Internet Explorer 7.0+. I’ve created a plugin for each of their mirrors so you can search from four different continents…maybe if you’re on holidays?

And just for Macquarie Students/Staff I’ve created search plugins for the JSTOR and Informaworld databases. These search plugins will ask you for your Macquaire electronic login details (usually your student number and password) and then direct you to your search results.

I’ve got a few other plugins, although not all live at the link below, and probably not that relevant to Macquarie Undergraduate Philosophy, but if you’d like them then email me and I’ll let you know how to manually install them.

So where to get these plugins? HERE of course!

    OK, if the above link doesn’t work for you, for whatever reason, then go to and enter the plugin names into the search box. Their names are (you’ll know they’re mine as they’ll say ‘by Simon Ives’ and they’re all Open Search plugins):
