I haven't heard this until yesterday. Another impressive service... Citations, links to pdfs.. I think it has a better interface than citeseer (a citation engine on computer science and electrical engineering papers)

I briefly covered this recently:

The only thing I don't like is to read PDFs online, and the result is mostly PDFs. Especially, my browser crashes when I just click on a PDF. I always need to save them on disk first, then open them.

It's sort of fun though to Google for your own name.

Obviously I missed your post Philipp :)

Actually I like it when it brought PDFs. I think it is a perfect way of formatting and presenting your paper.

One thing that I want to know is how they rank it (which is the usual question with google).. I don't think it is the citations, because I saw papers with more citations below a paper with a few citations.

Also, I think it is interesting. Because when someone searches a term and if your articles show in the first a few results, it is very likely that s/he will read it and maybe cite in her/his next work.. Who knows, maybe we will see scientists working hard to rank their papers higher. or buying sponsored links :P

I wonder how Google decides what goes into Scholar, and how it ranks those items. I could imagine:
1) PDFs make it
2) Anything on *.edu-domains make it?
3) Anything pointed to from *.edu-domains?
4) Papers which have the words "research", "statistic", "dr.", "engineering", "university", "student" etc. in them?

Possible patent infringment? As I said earlier, I personally don't like citeseer, it has an awful interface.
