Computer Science: A Guide to Non-Library Web Resources

Search Engines


Developed by the NEC Research Institute and currently managed by Pennsylvania State University, CiteSeerx is a digital library and search engine for resources like journal articles, conference papers, and technical reports in computer and information science. In addition to a list of documents, an author or subject search automatically generates the search context and a list of related documents. The autonomous citation indexing feature executes a citation search similar to Science Citation Index or Scopus. Many of the citations are linked to the full text.
