ScienceDirect Offers Web Research Guide

Via the November 16 edition of Tom Mighell's Internet Legal Research Weekly, we learn that ScienceDirect (a free site offering online access to 5,268,775 scientific articles from over 1800 journals) has published a Web Research Guide. The guide is designed "to help students, faculty members, authors and research scientists find the information they need on the Web." No mention is made of lawyers, but they did let me register anyway. Update: And did you know about scirus? I didn't.
Fed. R. Evid. 702: If scientific, technical, or other specialized knowledge will assist the trier of fact to understand the evidence or to determine a fact in issue, a witness qualified as an expert by knowledge, skill, experience, training, or education, may testify thereto in the form of an opinion or otherwise, if (1) the testimony is based upon sufficient facts or data, (2) the testimony is the product of reliable principles and methods, and (3) the witness has applied the principles and methods reliably to the facts of the case.
