Google Scholar is great to get a quick overview of scientific publications. However, it also gives you textbooks, theses and so forth. I would like to limit its results to include only peer-reviewed (conference) papers. Do you know of a way to do so?
There is no direct means to only show peer-reviewed work; as Google Scholar also posts legal summaries, and other major journal articles from the Online WorldCat. However, there are means by which you can help narrow down your results, to show what you are looking for (within reason).

For peer-reviewed articles, you should use the subscription databases of you college library or public library. Most of these databases can filter peer-reviewed articles from your search results.
