Google Scholar searches scholarly literature and includes peer-reviewed papers, dissertations, book citations, preprints, abstracts and technical reports from a variety of content providers. Sources of material include academic publishers, professional societies, preprint repositories, universities and open access publishers. Some content is available in full text.
When searching Google Scholar on campus, full text resources that are available from Rutgers University Libraries-subscribed databases or electronic journals will be automatically accessible. If you are unable to access the full text, please check the Library Catalog. It is possible that the Libraries may own the material identified in Google Scholar.
From off-campus, as long as you are logged into the library with your NetID and you connect to Google Scholar from this page, you will be able to access full text resources found in Google Scholar that are available from the Libraries-subscribed databases or electronic journals. Google Scholar is publicly available at scholar.google.com.
Google Scholar is not considered comprehensive for academic content. For the most thorough search of a topic, consult the subject specific indexes and databases to which the Libraries subscribe. For a complete list, see: Indexes and Databases.
