Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions, from academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other web sites.
*Note, not everything in Google Scholar is available in full-text viewing; some hits may lead you to just a citation and/or abstract. An online database, such as ProQuest, is still the best and most efficient way of searching for full-text, scholarly journal articles.
