Microsoft Academic Search

Microsoft Academic Search | Grade 8 iPads | Scoop.it
Find information about academic papers, authors, conferences, journals, and organizations from multiple sources.

 

~ Here's another example of serendiptous discover.  I picked this specialized search tool up from my Literacy with ICT Diigo group weekly email.  Thanks to Phil Taylor for sharing the link. 

 

Microsoft's Academic Search Engine offers a number of ways to search for research about any topic.  It's an intriguing, more visuual, alternative to Google's Acadmenic search.

 

The academic map gives you a world view of universities. You can then drill down into their databases, viewing research by topic, discipline, author.  The visual tools enhance the experience and provide entry points for searchers of different levels of expertise.

 

Comparing organizations by citation count is another innovative way to investigate data.  All of the tools give you a variety of ways to compare and consider information from academic sources.

 

This is a find! Click in and explore! ~ Dennis
