How can we use this website 'Google scholar' and what type of information we find here ?

Above comment from my name Pachu is written by another , not me the real Pachu.

Hi Simon and everyone
I have a question about listening skills
that what would you prefer when doing the multiple choice questions, should I go straight to the question or just take notes while listening to the audio then choose the answers later.
Thank you

Hi Everyone

This is my answer to this question. I am going to take the exam next week!

=================================Google Scholar=============================

What the website is:

I am going to talk about “google scholar” which is a freely accessible search engine that indexes the full text of scholarly literature across an array of publication formats and disciplines. The index of this website includes most peer-reviewed online academic journals and books, conference papers, theses and dissertations.
[Some explanations are taken from Wikipedia]

How often you use the website:

I try to make a regular visit of this website because I need to get familiar with the latest results, findings, and methodologies published by other research scholars. I tend to use this website when the articles, papers, or reports seem important and innovative; it could be two or three times a week. I also use this website to find the relevant references while I am writing a paper.
What information the website gives you: This website features an online registration form that allows you to create your own personal profile. You then will receive the latest updates on publications related to your field of study by email, so you will become able to check the website whenever you want. This website also provides the available links to journal articles that enables you to download an online copy of the publications. One of the major benefits of this website is that you can search for authors to see a list of their publications. Then you can sort the author’s work out according to the year of publication or the number of citations. This unique feature enables you to find the most cited articles of many research scholars across the world.

Explain how your work or studies would change if this website didn't exist:

As a postgraduate student, I believe that this website has vastly augmented my literature review process. Without having access to this website it would be a tedious task to find the references I need. I still would be able to use other search engines, but any trawl of the internet reveals diverse and contradictory claims!
