Google Scholar

Google Scholar is a freely accessible database and search engine that reproduces and disseminates the full text of scholarly literature across a range of publication formats and disciplines. At the same time, it automatically calculates bibliometric data for a large number of researchers around the world, providing a breakdown of their data by year and links to their most popular research papers and their co-authors. The Google Scholar database includes the most authoritative online books, scientific journals, conference proceedings, theses, pre-publications, abstracts, technical reports, and other scholarly literature research.
