I may be behind the times here, ...
but I've just noticed that google is indexing articles found in Looksmart's online index of freely available articles, and they are coming up at the top of results lists more frequently than ever. I know that many students have found this service, and are using it instead of our subscription indexes - students I've talked to think it's 'the same' as our subscriptions!
This is a useful thing for Poli Sci students, who want the most current info from places like The Statesman or the Economist, and similar journalistic publications, but it's scope is smaller than WPSA, and it only indexes those articles for which there is continuing full text online, and free. Not the most scholarly content. You can see the list of publications on the site.
