"Scholar.ly is expected to open in beta later this summer but we have a sneak preview already. Scholar.ly is being designed by and for researchers. It’s basically Google Scholar but a different format. The biggest difference from a standard Google-based search is that Scholr.ly’s results are instantly sorted into two columns: publications and authors. The publications page shows titles, authors and other meta information, as well as excerpts that are easy to skim. The right-side column shows authors. Each author can have a profile that includes career information, affiliations, publication listings, common co-authors, top publishing venues, and impact metrics."
