What is Google Scholar?
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 may be a good starting place, but it is not comprehensive enough to be the only place to do in-depth research.
For more precise searching, more search features, and more content, use the library subscribed databases that are most useful for your subject.
What should I do if I am asked to pay for the full text?
Don’t pay for it! Google Scholar often links to commercial publisher websites which ask you to pay for the full text.
If you have any problem on accessing full text or other questions, please feel free to ask for help at firstname.lastname@example.org.
