About Nate Hoffelder (11591 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. Scientific Literature Searching is a Disaster Today
    From the link:
    Google Scholar produced similar results. “Organized Flight in Birds” produced 10 hits on the first page.

    Yes, there were 10 hits on the first page, but 102 results in all. When the article doesn’t acknowledge those 102 hits, its claim that “Scientific Literature Searching is a Disaster Today” is not as strong as it would first appear.
