When I write science fiction, I need to have solid research materials at my disposal. Have to. I’ve been disillusioned with the power of the Google because of it’s over-reliance on what my social network is saying, so searching takes me quite a while to parse out the rumor mill from fact.
Yesterday, I was looking up a health-related item, and in pops Google Scholar right into the search results.
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. — SOURCE: Google Scholar
