Features of Google Scholar

  • Search a large quantity of scholarly literature from one convenient place
  • Explore related works, citations, authors, and publications
  • Locate the complete document through your library or on the web(if available)
  • Keep up with recent developments in any area of research
  • Check who's citing your publications, create a public author profile
