Google Scholar

Google Scholar is a search engine focused specifically on the discovery of scholarly literature (including Emory materials) as opposed to the broader web search engine. Google Scholar provides 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: Google Scholar is externally maintained and controlled by Google; inclusion in Google Scholar's indexing is not controlled by Emory.
