Databases

Use databases to find journals, preprint articles, published articles, conference proceedings, patents, technical reports and other e-publications.

If you are unsure of where to start, contact your librarian (Amanda McCormick) or visit this tutorial created by UB Libraries

The most frequently used physics databases are listed below.

  • If you run across a journal title that isn't familiar...make sure to check the title to confirm that it is a trusted peer-reviewed journal (and not a predatory journal).  Use Ulrichsweb: Global Serials Directory
