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.
