Studying Scholar

One other thing J.L. said yesterday about Google Scholar was that it was expanding beyond STM to social sciences and humanities. He also announced that Google Scholar was adding JSTOR journals. I caught up with him at the reception and asked how many JSTOR journals were now in Scholar. He frowned, grabbed his phone, and called a colleague, I’m assuming at the GooglePlex, since it was still working hours in California. The answer? 10 — that’s only ten — journals. I tried some sample searches this morning and, as far as I can tell, they’re all in the discipline of economics.
