Google Scholar's New Advanced Search Interface

Web Search--Google
Google Scholar's New Advanced Search Interface
The Google Scholar team has released an advanced search interface. You can limit your search by:
+ Publication (No syntax available)
+ Date Range (No syntax available)
+ Words in the Title
+ Author
+ View up to 100 results per search
Complete documentation and a few caveats here.
We haven't had much time to use the new interface but quickly spotted a problem or two (yes, it's a beta) with the date restriction. For example, we limited our searches to only documents published in 2004 and got several non-2004 items.
+ #1
The first item, a book, was published in 1987.
+ #2
The first item, a journal article, was published in 1995.
+ This search is limited to documents published between 2003 and 2004. The first item was published in 2001. To Google's credit, they mention date limiting issues in the documentation. Bottom Line: Be careful!
