What is the best website to use for finding research papers?

The anwer is easy: Google Scholar.

For instance, say I want to know about “shipwreck target detection and localization” and I just want to see what some recent papers have to say about it. I enter this phrase in the search bar (red circle) and click on “Since 2022” (red arrow), and Google Scholar gives me 891 results. These results are from different journals and websites, but here’s the key, Google Scholar will lead you to those websites, so you don’t have to remember them.

This approach works for scientific disciplines in general. For instance, searching on “dementia in Japan” returns these results.

Google Scholar even managed to find some results for the obscure topics “velicoraptor footwear,” although I don’t know how relevant they are.

Happy searching!
