Google Scholar's New Advanced Search Interface

by , Comments

The Google Scholar team has released an advanced search interface.

You can now limit your search by:
+ Publication Title (No syntax available)
+ Date Range (No syntax available)
+ Words in the Document Title
+ Author (author: )
+ View up to 100 results per search
Complete documentation and caveats here.

I haven't had much time to use the new interface but almost immediately spotted a problem (yes, it's a beta) with the date limit. For example, I limited my searches to only documents published in 2004 and got plenty of non-2004 items. Here are three examples:
+ #1
The first item, a book, was published in 1987.
+ #2
The first item, a journal article, was published in 1995.
+ This search is limited to documents published between 2003 and 2004. The first item was published in 2001. Google does include a caveat about limiting by date in the documentation. Bottom Line: Be careful!
