Google Scholar is an excellent place to find academic articles on just about any topic you can think of. If there’s an academic journal related to your research topic, Google Scholar has probably indexed it. It’s a research tool that high school students should know exists and college students should definitely know how to use it.
In this new video I provide a demonstration of five key features of Google Scholar that students should know how to use.
There is more to Google Scholar than just academic articles. You can also conduct searches for court cases and searches for patent filings. In this video that I produced a few years ago I explained how students can use Google Scholar to look at patent filings to trace the development of products like mobile phones.
