In addition to scholarly articles that appear on the web, Google Scholar includes “grey literature,” like conference papers, technical reports, and government documents that may not appear in other sources. Keep in mind that not all results in Google Scholar are scholarly and searches are limited. Queries may retrieve result sets that are inconsistent, redundant, and incomplete.
