"Microsoft Scholar" Coming Tuesday?
Blog chatter is hinting heavily about an impending launch of Microsoft's answer to Google Scholar, apparently called "Windows Live Academic Search." This will be a new part of the Windows Live service line. At least one blog has broken with the press blackout placed on the heavies invited to Redmond last Friday.
Aside from wondering what the site will offer, considering how the purveyor of SciFinder Scholar sued Google over the "Google Scholar" name, I'm also curious if EBSCO, the publisher of the Academic Search™ line of databases, has anything to say about Microsoft's name choice.
