Scholr.ly -- A New Academic Search Engine

I'm looking forward to Beta release of Scholr.ly - a new academic search engine, designed specially for researchers. Sorts results into two columns: publications and authors. The left-side (publications page) shows titles, authors and other meta information, along with easy-to-skim excerpts. The right-side column shows authors. Each author can have a profile that includes career information, affiliations, publication listings, common co-authors, top publishing venues, and impact metrics. Another nifty feature is that it lists papers that are available for free ahead of papers that reside behind a paywall. You can watch the 3 minute video here: http://vimeo.com/37754605 You can be an early adopter and sign up for the Beta here: http://scholr.ly/share/s885 Scholrly Walkthrough
