Google Scholar: New Service for Scientists and Scholars

Google Scholar enables researchers to search specifically for scholarly literature, including peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, preprints, abstracts and technical reports from all broad areas of research. Use Google Scholar to find articles from a wide variety of academic publishers, professional societies, preprint repositories and universities, as well as scholarly articles available across the Web.

Just type an author’s name in the search box often works. If you've authored a number of articles and want to narrow your results, use an "author:" prefix. For example, author:Parsi. To find your articles on a given topic, add relevant keywords to the search. E.g., author:Parsi "Aircraft Detection".
You can combine "author:" command with other commands such as "site:", or "allintitle:". For example:
allintitle:"Semantic Web" site:fr
author:Karimipour site:ir

    this is a great news. I hope this service developes and include all open access journals, institutional repositories, e-print and pre-print archives. Their ranking system looks novel among search engines.
