- Papers are listed not in order of publication, but in order of relevance, which is determined by PageRank, the same system used in regular Google searches.
- Next to each publication is a link to other publications that cite it. This allows you to immediately determine whether a paper is influential and who it has influenced.
- Scholar also includes searches of publications that don't make it to Medline, like books, small journals, and private collections.
- Scholar uses the familiar uncluttered Google interface.
Addendum: A library professional tears Google Scholar a new one over here.
