Sylvia's Recommendations for Getting Started
Web of Science
Comprehensive index of the major journal literature in the sciences, social sciences, and humanities. Use for your interdisciplinary research needs and for determining citation counts for research articles. Now includes proceedings.
Online service and index for journals from the Institute of Physics (IOP). Includes links to related articles, references and citations; latest and most popular article listings; and news delivered from IOP's community websites.
Includes physics, astronomy, math, computer science, quantitative biology and statistical science papers. Hosted at Cornell.
Offers access to reviews, abstracts and bibliographic information for much of the mathematical sciences literature.
Astrophysics Data System (ADS)
Indexes major astronomy and astrophysics journals; many papers in full text. A primary resource for astrophysics research.
Database of particle physics papers maintained at Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC). Integrates the library portals from SLAC, DESY, CERN, and FermiLab. Find preprints, technical reports, conference proceedings and journal literature in high energy physics.
SMU Physics Preprints
Preprint server for the SMU Physics Department. Similar to ArXiv, but specific to research papers written by SMU faculty.
Gale in Context: Science
Science In Context provides contextual information on significant science topics. This database shows how scientific disciplines, including physics and astronomy, relate to real-world issues. This is a good resource for gaining a foundational understanding of a variety of scientific concepts and their applications.
