While Google Books is much worse in Russian than in English it turns out that this is not the case with Google Scholar. To the contrary, Google Scholar is infinitely better in Russian than in English. It has a lot of full text journal articles. The number of scholarly journal articles available in their entirety on Google Scholar in Russian is much, much greater than on Google Scholar in English. I have even found whole scholarly books and dissertations on Google Scholar in Russian. This all after only about thirty minutes of searching. Who knows what I might find if I knew what I was doing.
