Scirus: for scientific information only

Scirus is a science-specific search engine covering over 250 million science-specific web pages and it is freely available!

This search engine, introduced by Elsevier in 2001, has grown considerably in the past five years. It searches web information, preprint servers, digital archives, repositories and patent and journal databases. Scirus goes deeper than the first two levels of a Web site and can find peer-reviewed articles such as PDF and PostScript files.

Scirus has both a basic and an advanced search mode. With the advanced search menu, you can focus your search by date, information type, file format, content source and subject area.

If you're a Scopus searcher, perhaps you've noticed the Web tab on the results screen. These results are coming directly from Scirus.

Give Scirus a try!
