We’ve been giving the new ProQuest a test drive and we like what we see. To start with it has a very simple search box with options to search in fulltext and in scholarly journal mode. If you want to do more than this, there’s always advanced search.
Something all researchers might consider is getting ProQuest “My Research” account, it’s very easy to do and is free (yay)! The nice thing about having an account is that you can save, share, and email articles, and access them from any pc (once you are logged in of course).
The red box above is where you can sign up or sign in to your “My Research” account. Once you’ve logged in (the mustard colored box) you are ready to start searching (the yellow box), saving, and sharing all those great articles. Note the check boxes to ensure that your results are full text and scholarly.
