Google Scholar is a free very large bibliographic database that is especially useful for bibliometric purposes as it provides the number and lists of citations received by the items included. Its current size is over 160 million unique documents, many of them with links to openly available full-text versions.
While most academic databases and search engines allow users to select one factor (e.g. relevance, citation counts, or publication date) to rank results, Google Scholar ranks results with a combined ranking method, weighing the full text of each article, the author, the publication in which the article appears, and how often the piece has been cited in other scholarly literature. As a consequence the first search results are often highly cited articles.
