How Does Google Scholar Work?

Google Scholar is a search engine for scholarly literature at major academic publishers & university presses that lets you find articles/citations on the topic of your choice.

It ranks documents based on the number of times an article has been viewed, printed, or downloaded within a set period of time (usually around 1 yr). Its aim is to rank documents the way researchers would: based on relevance & popularity.

Documents are added to its library when publishers submit them to the GS Metadata Program. From there, documents are indexed, ranked, & made available to searchers in search results.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Jamyson Haug

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
