Microsoft might just give you a little help finishing your next term paper. The company is integrating academic data into Bing and services that use it, like Cortana in Windows Phone 8.1. When the upgrade hits in the fall, you should have an easier time tracking down articles on given subjects, finding an author's other works or following news from a conference. Importantly, you won't have to visit a separate page to see academic info front and center, as you do with Google Scholar. If all goes well, you'll have the luxury of starting research on a big report from your Windows Phone; just don't expect Cortana to bail you out hours before the due date.
