View Full Version : Scholor search on google?

May 10th, 2008, 10:17 PM
I recently heard a rumor floating around that on google there is a search option called a scholarly search, and that they will charge you for reading articals done by experts. The debate went on for a bit and the idea that were heading down a path that will lead to us having to pay for expert information on the internet. What have you guys heard? heres one of the links that they speak of http://www.jstor.org/pss/2641364

It's called Google Scholar. They've had it for a while.

No no, JSTOR has no affiliation with Google. IT is a privately owned article database. I suppose Google could be using some of JSTOR's articles, but JSTOR will still make you pay for them.

Scikidus is correct. Google does not chare you for use of Google Scholar. However, many scholarly articles are privately owned, and charges often apply; academic researchers get around this via. an Athena Card.

only good if you are a member of a university that pays for all the paid articles, so you can access them.

When is Google going to procure its own country? An island would probably be ideal.
