Google Scholar announces major improvements

with one comment

ResourceShelf seems proud to announce major changes in Google Scholar (GS).

  • Email alerts are now available
  • Syntax has been enhanced to build complex queries
  • Alert on new citations to paper
  • A disruptive (?) feature was introduced, the automatic query modification: according Google, GS alerts “changes your to get better results (for example, [statistical speech recognition] has been changed to [statistical intitle:”speech recognition“]”. No surprise that Google keeps the secrecy about how query modification works!!!

What GS doesn’t do still:

  • Date limits do not work
  • RSS feeds are not yet available
  • List of indexed journals is not published
  • Updating policies are not clear
