Scirus search engine - for scientific information

The free scientific search engine Scirus provides access to websites, journals and other document sources in science, technology and the medical disciplines. Scirus filters non-scientific information. Search results are presented under three tabs ‘Journal sources’ ‘Preferred Web sources’ and ‘Other Web sources’. The ‘Advanced Search’ page provides a list of the ‘Journal sources’ and ‘Preferred Web sources’ indexed by Scirus.

Scirus was developed by Elsevier and is linked from the Compendex and Inspec databases on the Engineering Village platform. A full review of Scirus is available from the online journal Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, Winter 2007.
