26 august 2011 07:53I just spent 5 minutes trying to find the Microsoft Academic Search website. I *knew* Microsoft offered a way to search for scientific content, but because I assumed it was being marketed under the name Bing - which MS has reserved for everything search-related - I kept entering search terms like 'Bing science' 'Bing scientific search', etc. I would suggest to rename or at least redirect the service to Bing Academic. For me as a consumer, it would make a lot more sense.

I guess the person above did not get through to Microsoft.
Make the website http://academic.bing.com.
It's not that difficult of a concept, Microsoft.
