Google Scholar

Searches specifically for scholarly literature, including peer-reviewed jouranl papers, theses, books, preprints, abstracts and technical reports from all areas of research. Includes resources from academic publishers, professional societies, preprint repositories and universities, as well as scholarly articles available across the web. Includes resources not retrieved in a regular Google search. Just as with Google Web Search, Google Scholar orders your search results by how relevant they are to your query, so the most useful references should appear at the top of the page. This relevance ranking takes into account the full text of each article as well as the article's author, the publication in which the article appeared and how often it has been cited in scholarly literature. Google Scholar also automatically analyzes and extracts citations and presents them as separate results, even if the documents they refer to are not online. This means your search results may include citations of older works and seminal articles that appear only in books or other offline publications.Some references include the fulltext resource
