Seaching in Google Scholar

  • It says the search best with keywords, but I’ve often had good luck typing in all kinds of stuff
  • No peer review filter
  • No filter for empirical articles
  • It helps to look for the journal name under the title in each result
  • The cite tool works well, but you still need to check it against a style guide
