In this research the degree to which search abilities have been inserted into the search engines of Persian and non-Persian E-Journals has been investigated. 97 Persian E-Journals (PEJ) and 30 non-Persian, in this case English, E-Journals (EEJ) represent the research population. The required data were gathered through designing a checklist, which was filled out for each PEJ and EEJ. The results of the study showed that neither PEJs nor EEJs reached the standards of search abilities set for search engines. In all, EEJs’ search engines by 37.9 percent insertion of search abilities in their search engines witness a better condition than PEJ’s search engines.
