Google Scholar is a simple way to search for scholarly literature outside of things found in a subscription database. You can find information from universities, professional organizations, online repositories and other websites. Results may include peer-reviewed journal articles, dissertations, conference papers, and more. It is important to carefully review the source of information to ensure that you are using a trusted source.
