About Google Scholar

Google Scholar searches the full text of millions of journal articles from thousands of journals...  plus books, theses, patents, legal decisions, PDFs on university websites and other information on the web that Google categorizes as "scholarly."

It can be a great resource for finding journal articles, although it does not provide the fine-tuned searching capabilities of some of the specialized search tools.
