Peter Jasco trashes Google Scholar

Peter Jasco has published a critical review of Google Scholar. He criticizes the citedness scores, the lack of information about the scope, and the mixing of different types of publications.

Gale - Free Resources - Reference Reviews - Peter's Digital Reference Shelf - June: "There are certainly many journals of many publishers covered to keep casual users, high-school and undergrad students, TV talking heads and shallow journalists happy, but for scholarly research the breadth of coverage is not sufficient, the implementation is sloppy and the software options are inferior."
