Most of the Library's journal "subscriptions" are now electronic. Find articles in these journals by using our Discover service (above) or a specific database. The two most important databses for chemistry research are Academic Search Complete and Science Direct. Tips on using these databases are under the sub-tabs above.
Which is the best to use? In terms of full-text availability of important chemistry journals, each of these databases has about the same number of titles. However, for a broader search, that will retrieve journal articles that will need to be requested through Interlibrary Loan, Science Direct is probably the better choice. For a comprehensive search, however, you should use both of these, and perhaps other, databases. (See the Other Databases tab above.)
If you have a citation (from another article, a bibliography, etc.) and need to know if the Library has in print or online, use the Journals List search box below.
The 2nd floor of the Library houses our print journals. They are in alphabetical order by journal title.
Looking for a specific journal, magazine, or newspaper?
Use Journals List to search for the title of a journal, magazines, or newspaper and determine if the library offers online access or print access to that publication.
An exciting new development in academic publishing is Open Access, which makes the reports of research freely available. Government-sponsored research is increasingly moving toward this method of research dissemination.
