The Launch of Scholrly: new search engine seeks to change the way people find research

By Brian Mathews, Chronicle of Higher Ed

I spent time in California interviewing graduate students about their work processes. Something that stood out to me was how science and engineering students typically looked for people (rather than subject headings) during the information gathering stage. The objective was to find researchers working in particular areas and then mine their websites for additional papers. That’s exactly the approach that Scholrly hopes to improve upon. I first came across Scholrly about a year ago when a friend of a friend liked them on Facebook. I explored and this is what I found:

“Scholrly aims to give its users, from the garage inventor to the tenured professor, a single stop for finding research connections and insights faster than ever before.”
