Google Scholar

Logo for Google Scholar


Google Scholar searches for scholarly journals, books, theses, conference papers, etc.

Some things to note:

  • It lacks most of the search limiting functions of other article databases.
  • Google does not make clear what journals it searches or excludes or what years are covered.
  • Google's definition of "scholarly" may not agree with ours!
  • Never pay for an article! C&P the title into Articles Plus to see if we have it. IF not, use Interlibrary Loan to request it for free.
