After reading Stan Schroder’s article in Mashable about refseek, a new academic search engine, that was launched today in beta mode.  According to the reseek site,

RefSeek (rĕf-sēk) is a web search engine for students and researchers. refseek aims to make academic information easily accessible to everyone. refseek searches more than one billion documents, including web pages, books, encyclopedias, journals, and newspapers.

In comparison to Google refseek indexes more that just scientific publications, thereby returning more search results. The site also has a a “narrow your search” feature that suggests terms to help you narrow your search for better results.  Another noticible difference is there are no ads in refseek’s search results, which is always a plus when your diligently researching a topic and prefer not to be distracted.

I’m adding refseek to my arsenal of research tools.  Hopefully it will prove to be useful.  you think of
