Specialty Search Engine-Science

If you're looking for accurate, authoritative scientific information using the web, an excellent starting point is Scirus, a science-only specialized or "vertical" search engine from Elsevier. Combining a webcrawler that focuses only on web sites with scientific content, such as university web sites and author homepages, with the publisher Elsevier's massive scientific information resources drawn from thousands of journals and books, Scirus offers a hybrid service that is second to none.

Scirus also includes a news feed with the latest science headlines.

Trust the Ernster, this is THE PLACE for science-specific results on the web. Specialized search engines are one way to get better information faster, so you can hit the beach!
