Google Scholar is a freely-accessible Web search engine that indexes the full text of scholarly literature across an array of publishing formats and disciplines.

It provides a simple way to broadly search for scientific articles. One can search across many disciplines and sources like peer-reviewed articles, theses, books, abstracts and papers from academic publishers, professional societies, preprint repositories, universities and other scholarly organizations.

What I don't like about Google Scholar is that most of the scientific articles I find require registration and payment to access them. Aren't they suppose to be free for all?

Google Scholar only helps one identify the most relevant research across the world of scholarly research. And that's it. It will never make the papers available for download! Too bad, that would have been the most important part -- accessibility.
