  • Not everything in Google Scholar is scholarly – results can include PowerPoint presentations and unscholarly documents as well as articles from predatory journals (Predatory journal: a scam journal that charges a fee for the publication of articles without providing legitimate publication services)
  • Uses an algorithm to make a calculated guess at what is scholarly, and it is not known how it determines what to include
  • Cannot do backward citation tracking (Backward citation tracking: finding the works cited by an original work)
