The best search engines and e-libraries

In the university, the topics of written work are often not interesting and have no practical value. Sometimes there are teachers who encourage creative work, or topics that are being asked to explore them. Where to look for high-quality and, moreover, free information?

1

Google Scholar

Google Scholar

The service is based on Google's search giant, which finds information from any subject, time periods, and disciplines. The search is divided into sections "Articles" and "Trial practice", but you can find material by keyword or name. In general, the use of this service is very convenient, it quickly and efficiently collects information in the open access.

However, there are significant disadvantages. First, there will be articles on all the disciplines in the key words, so writing a paper on political science will have to spend time searching for sources from this area. Secondly, Google Scholar does not display access to the material - you never know if it's in full, or there's just a brief annotation.

Microsoft Academic

Microsoft Academic

Microsoft's search service has been substantially updated a year ago and is now gaining popularity. Of the three, this resource is the only one oriented not on keywords, but on a semantic search, that is, the content of the query. For example, the search query "spin trend" in most systems will analyze the sources for the frequency of use of these words. In this way, Microsoft Academic will try to find information on the popularity of anti-stress tools.

JSTOR

JSTOR

This e-library contains mainly English-language resources, but there are several thousand of them. The bulk of publications - articles from scientific journals, but also books, research reports, etc. The advantage is a detailed search. You can specify the exact industry and level of accessibility: "open to download" or "available for reading online". Below each resource there are linked topics, but the library does not have a specific specificity, so anyone can find something suitable. JSTOR is now working on moving from keyword search to semantic query analysis.

Oxford University Press

Oxford University Press

This resource collected English-language articles from magazines published by Oxford. In addition to the usual sorting, resources are divided by type of access: placed simply on the site, available for reading, for purchase, and those that are available only for a limited period of time. The advantage is the ability to specify specific journals - this greatly reduces the search box.

Cambridge University Press

Cambridge University Press

Cambridge cares about easy access to science, so the site of their publisher has articles from magazines for all releases. The site is convenient to use not only for search, but also for proper quoting: all the necessary information is in the description of the materials.
