Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions, from academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other web sites. Google Scholar helps you find relevant work across the world of scholarly research.
What is the difference between and ?
Google is a broad based search engine that looks at many sources. Google Scholar looks for scholarly literature based on the results of research or studies. Library databases can contain a wealth of resources not included in Google Scholar. We do not have a list of journals or websites Google Scholar searches so do not rely on it to find all of your research. In the research process you need to find information from a variety of resources.
