This has the potential to be big. And probably opens up a whole new meaning to Googling around here. This has got to be ToSeek's dream :D .

It's still in beta, and has many potential pitfalls as the article I'm going to link to mentions, but it's promising.

Google's new scholarly search tool (http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20041118-4407.html).

And here is the link to the scholar search page:

Can i just say... *drools*

(some time later)

that search engine rules i just found this (http://scholar.google.com/scholar?hl=en&lr=&safe=off&q=cache:YzzP3jv_kPgJ:in tl.sciencemag.org/cgi/content/full/295/5554/425a%3Fck%3Dnck+%22quantum+engine%22) which would have taken ages to find on google and probably wouldn't have given me the cache to be able to read it.

My vote is 2 thumbs up :D
