Google Scholar

Stand on the shoulders of giants.

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. Google Scholar helps you find relevant work across the world of scholarly research.


On the start page of Google Scholar you find the text Standing on the shoulders of giants . Which means that every research uses research done by predecessors. Literally: a dwarf standing on the shoulders of a giant can look further than the giant himself.
