On Google Scholar

3.04.2005

Identity Crisis

Google pioneers digital libraries.
Google has also compiled a database, Google Scholar, that lets users search various universities and organizes the search results by relevance. Duke participates in Google Scholar, but it has also recently developed the Digital Production Center, a new enterprise with the goal of digitizing library collections and expanding digital content to the Duke community.


This is easily the tenth article I've read that blurs the line between Google Scholar and Google Print. I suppose it's understandable, but I reckon a Brand Manager at Google might want to get on this...

  • Are all books considered scholarly?

    By Blogger Brad, at 2:40 PM  

  • No, not all books are considered scholarly. Scholarly communication is evaluated for quality (often peer-reviewed), disseminated for public good, and preserved for future use. Most books, even non-scholarly books, do go through an editorial process. Web pages are neither peer-reviewed nor subject to editorial process.

  • >>>Web pages are neither peer-reviewed nor subject to editorial process.

    I wouldn't paint with such a wide stroke there... WikiPedia, Slashdot, Metafilter, and others are maintained by lots of people, so there is some natural peer review going on.

    Open Source is also just another term for peer review, so most pages and files associated with projects will undergo peer review.

    Google's own Pagerank method treats links to web sites as citations. The more people that link to a site on X topic, that site becomes an authority on X topic, and is ranked higher in search results.

  • By definition peer-review means the review is coming from the "community of the adequate," i. e., those who are qualified to perform peer review. Open Source, WikiPedia, etc. are open to anyone, and "anyone," by definition, does not restrict reviewing to peers. E. g., an article written by a nuclear engineer is not being "peer-reviewed" when a net-savvy 12 year old decides to modify one of the formulas. She would have the technical ability to do so, but that kind of "peer" modification should not be confused with scholarly peer-review. Ditto for the popularity rankings, which are content agnostic.

  • Comparing/contrasting peer review of books or articles and open source...

    Anyone can read books, articles, or source code, but not just anyone has the skills to test and validate author's claims.

    Is testing, verification, and validation considered to be the essence of "scholarly peer review"?

    Enlighten me.

  • I don't understand the question. The previous post was fairly explanatory. The essence of scholarly peer-review is that it is done by recognized scholars (human beings who have demonstrated their adequacy to the task). Scholars in the disciplines recognize their own peers. Or is that not what you were asking?

  • I have often found true religion jeans outlet the young shieldscxy cowbunting in the nests of small birds; and have seen these last followed by the young foundling, calling out clamorously for true religion sale food; and I once took a very fine one from the nest of the true religion jeans sale Maryland yellow throat, where it was fostered with great care. The migrations of these birds extend very fa? north. true religion jeans for men On their way they frequently stop in June, and are observed loitering singly, among diesel jeans thickets, reconnoitering no doubt for proper nurses to whose care G-star jeans they may True religion jeans true religion mens jeans outlet commit the hatching of their eggs, and the rearing of their helpless orphans. Among the birds selected for this duty are the diesel jeans outlet redeyed and whiteeyed flycatchers, the chipping sparrow, the goldencrowned thrush, the bluebird, the small blue gray flycatcher and and the yellow throat. mens true religion jeans The yellow throat and the redeyed flycatcher, appear to be particular favorites; and the kindness and affectionate attention which those two little birds pay to their nurslings, fully justifies the partiality of the parents. What reason nature cheap jeans may have for this extraordinary deviation true religion kids from her general practice, is beyond my comprehension.These birds often frequent corn and ricefields; but are more commonly found accompanying the skinny outlet cattle, feeding on the true religion jeans cheap seeds and worms, &;c., which they pick up amongst the fodder, &;c. Hence they are called cowbirds, ‚ÄĘcowpen birds, and crow blackbirds. G-star jeans outlet They are generally found associated with the redwinged blackbirds, which they in many respects resemble.In the month jeans outlet of July, says Wilson, I took from the nest of a Maryland yellow throat, a young male cowbunting, which filled and occupied the whole nest. I took the bird home with me, and placed it in the same cage with a redbird, who at first and for several minutes after examined it closely and seemingly with great curiosity. It soon became clamorous for food, and from that moment the redbird seemed to adopt it as his own, feeding it true religion outlet with all the assiduity and tenderness of the most affectionate nurse.
