- Google Scholar
- Google's scholarly literature search engine is very large, although there isn't a way to know what it actually covers and what it doesn't. It also lacks features to focus and manipulate results that tools such as SciFinder and Web of Science have. One advantage it does have over other services is that it indexes the full text of most documents, which traditional index databases don't do. Don't rely on GS for comprehensive research.
