Growing number of converts to Google Scholar

“”Google is the dominant referral source for online journal articles, far surpassing the amount of traffic driven by other discovery tools” or so says an article in this week’s issue of the journal Science. And while there are some detractors who point out how easy it is to plant false citations to papers in the index and the precise algorithm remains as opaque as with any other of Google’s services, Scholar’s director robustly defends it as improving and growing all the time.
