Description:

Google Scholar is a freely available search engine that emphasizes scholarly information, particularly in the sciences and technology. For Advanced Search, click on the arrow beside the search box.

Information is drawn from academic publishers, professional societies, preprint repositories and universities. The "cited by" links are especially useful for items not listed in Web of Science, the traditional citation index.

Before using information, check the source; for example, an article may be available in several versions, from draft to final form as published in a journal.
