Abstract (Document Summary)

In this installment of comparisons between subject-specific databases and Google Scholar, the authors turn their attention to world history specifically comparing searches run in Historical Abstracts With Full Text and those run in Google Scholar. The authors continue to investigate what searchers see in the first few pages of results. Users, particularly students, will rarely search more than one database if the first results they find are acceptable for their search. Thus, the authors are comparing the top results from each database as well as looking at each set of results individually to ascertain its quality for each search. The authors ignored "cited by" related information and did not pay any attention to full-text access between the two resources since this can vary based on local subscriptions and full-text linking services. The goal of the authors was simply to compare the results of searches within these two resources.
