Google Scholar

Google    Scholar

Ratchet-up the quality of your Google search.  Search Google Scholar to find journal articles, conferences papers, and patents.  Google Scholar may offer you a link to the paper -- but it is more likely to point to a publisher - who will ask you to pay.  Wright State University Libraries may be able to get you the paper you need.

Use the Settings option:

Tip #1: Add the OhioLINK "library link" to integrate Wright State access options into your results.


Tip#2: If you are off-campus and see a reCAPTCHA error message "invalid domain for site key," go directly to google scholar; open the menu; choose Settings; Library Links; find and select "Wright State University - Full Text - Wright State."
