Comments about Google Scholar

And worth mentioning:

·         Google Scholar

o   GS is good at identifying articles whose citations were found through other bibliographies that are encountered in the process of reading.

o   GS is not like the carefully structured, library-based databases.

o   GS provides relatively little free full text.

o   GS is helpful when database research has been done but results have been unsatisfactory.
