Academic Searches using Google

  1. May 20, 2010 #1
    Hello everyone,

    I have written this small guide, which covers the most important and useful Google search operators, which can totally improve your google search results.

    If you just type in your search keywords in Google then this is for you.

    The guide also includes two small sections:

    i.) Using Google Scholar: Mainly for research papers and journal articles.
    ii.) Useful Links: Some really awesome pages (Physics theme) e.g. Lectures notes from other universities.

    I hope you like it, and your feedback is welcomed.

    Hello everyone!

    Being an instructor, you should know how to adjust and make new searches for your new discoveries. I used to be an online teacher before, everytime i have new student i make sure that i am ready to accept them with their opinions and discoveries as they enter to my ways of learning.

    Since i'm new here, just want to ask if when could i post my sigs here? are there any limits? Thanks a lot!
