Making the Most of Google Scholar

Google Scholar

Google Scholar is a search engine that can provide links to full-text articles Nicholson Library already subscribes to or to articles made freely available by a publisher.  When the full-text is freely unavailable, Scholar provides citations and abstracts of an article that is copyright protected.

    • Ease to use...similar to regular Google
    • Citation information provided
    • Results from a variety of information sources...technical reports, preprints, societal publications, etc.
    • Full-text if available
    • Full-text not available or restricted without a subscription
    • Uneven coverage in social sciences, better for hard sciences
    • No limiter for just scholarly publications
    • Few options to limit or narrow search results
