- Google Scholar
- Google's scholarly literature search engine is massive (although there isn't a way to know what it actually covers and what it doesn't), but it lacks the powerful features to focus and manipulate results that you can use in tools such as SciFinder and Web of Science. One advantage is does have over other abstracting services is that it indexes the full text of most documents. Don't rely on GS for comprehensive research.
