KISHAN SUTARIYA (2013): »Google Scholar is a web search engine that provides access to educational literature through a variety of sources. It can be accessed at scholar.google.com. Google’s website describes Google Scholar as follows: Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. From one place, you can 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. Google Scholar helps you find relevant work across the world of scholarly research. Google Scholar enables you to search all scholarly literature from one location, while retaining the ability to cite the publications, keep up with various developments in a certain industry or area, and link with your library or look up the document on the web. Google Scholar launched its beta version in November 2004 and added features based on demand, including the ability to cite articles in 2006, and digitize and host journal articles in 2007. Google Scholar exists to provide a specialized search engine for scholarly literature, in comparison with the standard Google search which has information from a variety of sources. You should use Google Scholar when looking for publications and scholarly articles on your topic. A good example would be if you were looking for academic articles on “iPhone Success”, Google Scholar would provide a better set of results then the standard search on Google. This is evident below with Google Scholar results coming up in the regular search. However, using Google Scholar may not be the best tool in all cases, which I will discuss later in the chapter.« Source
