Secure Academic Search Engine Knobull Ranked #2 By The College Post
By: Knobull, Inc.
The Knobull service is an academic search engine for students and researchers that aims to make education information easily accessible to everyone. It searches more than five billion documents, including web pages, books, encyclopedias, journals, and newspapers."
This unique approach offers students comprehensive subject coverage without the information overload of a general search engine—increasing the visibility of academic information and compelling ideas that are often lost in a muddle of sponsored links and commercial results.
Bentley continued, "Here is how we articulates this difference: In most search engines, suggestions are a convenient feature, but in an academic search engine plays the important role of crawling through most academic data bases. Imagine this search technology in a dialogue with you in order to understand your needs better and help you accomplish your search goal more efficiently."
The Knobull Learning Center, as a single source set of guidance tools, in addition to the academic search service, will definitely help you expand your knowledge about your area of academic exploration. Included are Rapid Response to questions, links to academic sources, Student News and collaboration on the secure Messageboard. This combination will familiarize you with important information about your field of study including: seminal works, canonical literature, key authors, journal titles, conference names, and many more.
When users visit our web site, you may provide us with two types of information:
The system uses filters to help you get accurate results. It filters your search queries using criteria such as relevance, time of publication, and publication type (book, journal paper, conference publication, etc). You will also get access to the following information related to your query: 'top topics', top journals, top authors, top institutions, top conferences.
Bentley concluded, "Overall, our service does a excellent job of limiting your search to more serious scientific and academic information with few omissions, so it can be reliably and securely used on its own."
