Scirus Closing
The science search engine

The specialty search site scirus.com, owned by science publisher Elsevier, is closing down.

A notice on the site says:

"We are sad to say goodbye

"Scirus is set to retire in early 2014. An official retirement date will be posted here as soon as it is determined.

"To ensure a smooth transition, we are informing you now so that you have sufficient time to find an alternative search solution for science-specific content."

Too bad, because this was a site I genuinely used to find scientific papers and abstracts.

Would Google Scholar [scholar.google.com] be the reason Scirus died? They pull up a lot of academic material in addition to patents and legal documents.
