consist of items shared with the public by individual WizFolio user. As the items are vetted by the contributors, it is likely that these items are of significance, at least to the contributors.
The items in these collections reflect the interest of the individual users and organized based on the domain knowledge of the contributors. These items have links to the contributors’ profile pages, which has similar items. Exploring these links may yield unexpected items of interest.
By sharing compiled lists of references, users create for themselves an Internet presence as these items are indexible by search engines. In other words, an Internet search for an item that is in a user's compiled list will return the user's profile page as a search result. This creates a greater awareness of the user's research and publications.
comprises more than 20 million citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books. Citations may include links to full-text content from PubMed Central and publisher web sites.
Quick, simple telegram-style search formulations can also be used, and they generally produce acceptable results. PubMed automatically links textwords to relevant MeSH terms. Aspects of the question can then be added successively, in a Google-like fashion, until a number of 'hits' judged manageable is achieved. No knowledge of actual MeSH terms, Boolean operators, English or American spelling, ‘nesting’, or record-fields is required. PubMed's intelligent search algorithm does (or implies) this in the background. Examples of such simple telegram-style questions and results they produce on PubMed:
Question 1: Optimal management of radial head fractures? Randomized controlled trials?
Telegram-style question in PubMed search window: radial head fractures randomized
Question 2: Paper by Glasziou on radial fractures in the BMJ in 2007?
Telegram-style question in PubMed search window: glasziou fractures bmj 2007
Question 3: State of vitreous body (of the eye) and time of death? A review, perhaps?
Telegram-style question in PubMed search window: vitreous body time death review
is a service of the Ontario Council of University Libraries. The e-journals service of Scholars Portal recently celebrated an important milestone, loading its 20 millionth article.

is based on the principle of social bookmarking and is aimed to promote and to develop the sharing of scientific references amongst researchers.
New entries are added as public by default, which makes them accessible to everyone. Entries can be added as private and are then only available to the specific user. Users of CiteULike thus automatically share all their public entries with other users. The tags assigned to public entries contribute to the site-wide tag network. All public references can also be searched and filtered by tag. CiteULike gives access to personal or shared bibliographies directly from the web. It allows to see what other people posted publicly, which tags they added, and how they commented and rated a paper. It is also possible to browse the public libraries of people with similar interest to discover interesting papers. Groups allow individual users to collaborate with other users to build a library of references.
provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions, from academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other web sites. Google Scholar helps you find relevant work across the world of scholarly research.

How are documents ranked?
Google Scholar aims to rank documents the way researchers do, weighing the full text of each document, where it was published, who it was written by, as well as how often and how recently it has been cited in other scholarly literature.
