What does it include?
How does it work?
When you do a search in Google Scholar, you get a list of citations. You'll get links to the full-text if ODU Libraries subscribes to the journal title, if it's from an open access journal, or if the researcher posted the article on his or her website.
Google Scholar ranks results based on how often and recently it has been cited, and by weighing the full-text of each document, location of publication, and author. Google Scholar tends to place high weight on citation counts and words included in the document title. http://scholar.google.com/intl/en/scholar/about.html
