I am looking for a Google Chrome extension that can add DOI for each document in the results lists in Google Scholar (except for documents that don't have a DOI).

Any license and price is fine.

  • were you able to find any methods to get the DOIs?

    See webapps.stackexchange.com/a/114259/147505 for thoughts on how to make such an extension. Commented Feb 1, 2018 at 14:25

    Is there a reason why Google Scholar does not want to use DOI? These identifiers are so useful and are now the norm for about every scientific field. Commented Jul 5, 2021 at 9:23

Crossref has a DOI lookup API but there is a yearly fee. You could create an extension that takes the Scholar results, sends to the API and returns DOIs to the page.
