Posted on Wednesday, Apr 12 2006 @ 19:26 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Microsoft has launched a beta version of Windows Live Academic, a competitor to Google Scholar.
Academic search enables you to search for peer reviewed journal articles contained in journal publisher portals and on the web in locations like citeseer. Academic search works with libraries and institutions to search and provide access to subscription content for their members. Access restricted resources include subscription services or premium peer-reviewed journals. You may be able to access restricted content through your library or institution.

We have built several features designed to help you rapidly find the content you are searching for including abstract previews via our preview pane, sort and group by capability, and citation export. We invite you to try us out - and share your feedback with us.
You can check it out over here.
