Using Google Scholar as a Rutgers database can offer advantages when looking for the full text of known articles. Google Scholar frequently offers links to Full Text@Rutgers or another PDF if the item is available on the open Web or in certain Rutgers-restricted databases. In addition, Google Scholar will search standard periodical title abbreviations, such as those used in Medline or PubMed (Index Medicus format), which other databases usually will not.
Use the Advanced Scholar Search to look for your article. If searching author name, use just the last name to avoid problems with variant initials and so forth. One efficient search is author last name plus exact phrase searching, in which you can use some exact phrase from the title of the article. You can also specify journal name and date if you wish.
References from Google Scholar can also be exported into RefWorks if you change the Scholar Preferences on the browser you are using.
