Search Engines

Google Scholar
Google Scholar searches scholarly publications from university, government and academic publisher sites. The Google Scholar link provided here authenticates you as an RMIT user and so provides access to a range of RMIT-subscribed e-journals.


Microsoft Academic
Includes post-search filtering options not currently available in Google Scholar.


BASE logo

BASE (Bielefeld Academic Search Engine)
Focusing on academic repositories, BASE provides sophisticated search functionality not available in Google Scholar. The Advanced Search option allows the user to specify where the search term occurs (eg. Title, Author, Subject Headings, Publisher). Results can be filtered by Document Type (eg. thesis). The Browsing option filters by discipline using the library Dewey Decimal Classification Code. Dewey results can also be filtered by Document Type.


Semantic Scholar
Machine indexing of papers in computer science and neuroscience. At this stage some coverage of mathematics and geospatial science is also included and there are plans to extend the discipline scope to include biology, physics and the remaining hard sciences. Citations and references in the text are used to identify links between papers as well as the most influential papers. Records also highlight key phrases found in similar papers.
