Google Scholar Added to Google's Homepage

There's a new link to Google Scholar in the list of services from the "more" box. Google's search engines for scholarly papers was available on the homepage only if you visited Google from your school.

Google Scholar includes a big list of scientific publications and some of them aren't available in Google's main index. "Google Scholar covers peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, abstracts, and other scholarly literature from all broad areas of research. You'll find works from a wide variety of academic publishers and professional societies, as well as scholarly articles available across the web."

  1. I have images - groups - news - scholar on top of the search box. The more-link leads to a new page, same on iGoogle and on the non-personalized version.

  2. That means you use a localized version of Google. Maybe Google Australia?

    Google US is available at google.com/ncr.

  4. What I really need is for Google Scholar results to start showing up in my Web History. To me, that would be much more useful than having a history of image and news searches. Hopefully this is a step in the right direction.
