Digital Libraries and Search Engines for Software Engineering Research: An Overview

The aim of this document is to provide informal information relating to the major search engines and digital libraries that are frequently used by the software engineering research community. The details provided are particularly focussed towards the needs of evidence-based researchers performing systematic literature reviews but the details may be useful to researchers performing any form of literature survey. Where the information is available, information is provided relating to the resources indexed by each digital library or search engine, and other relevant information concerning the searching facilities provided. It is intended that this document will be updated periodically with information relating to different electronic databases or search engines, or as new information is discovered about the databases already covered.
