When using a campus computer or UF Wireless, you're connected to the UF network. But for off-campus access to library-licensed e-Journals, research databases and e-resources, use either:
UF VPN - or - the library proxy server (on the remote logon page)
When you see in your search results, click for access to digital full-text material.
is a fully automated electronic archive and distribution server for research papers. It covers areas such as physics and related disciplines, mathematics, nonlinear sciences, and computer science.
is a scientific literature digital library that also provides algorithms, techniques, and software. Links cited documents and maintains list of most-cited authors in computer science.
Computing Research Repository
partnership of ACM, the Los Alamos e-print archive (arXiv), NCSTRL, and AAAI to build a single repository for computer science research reports.
Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS)
is "an international refereed open access venue for the rapid electronic publication of the proceedings of workshops and conferences, and of festschriften, etc, in the general area of theoretical computer science, broadly construed."
E-print Network: Research Communications for Scientists and Engineers
gateway to over 26,000 Web sites and databases worldwide, containing 1.2 million e-prints primarily in physics but also chemistry, biology and life sciences, materials science, nuclear sciences and engineering, energy research, computing and IT.
Finding Journal Articles
Access restricted to current UF students/staff/faculty.
ACM Digital Library
contains "Full text of every article ever published by ACM."
IEEE Xplore Electronic Library (IEL)
provides indexing and full-text access to IEEE and IEE/IET transactions, journals, magazines and conference proceedings published since 1988 and all current IEEE standards
Computer and Information Systems Abstracts
covers theoretical research and practical applications. Great for searching figures and tables.
Free web portal for search and rank of scientific articles published in journals and conferences worldwide, in computer sciences, electronics and related areas. Focus on relevance of results and technical collaboration. Covers ACM publications, IEEE CS publications, as well as those listed by CiteSeerX, DBLP and many other databases.
contains reviews in computing literature from Reviews.com and the ACM.
Indexes scientific and technical journals and conference proceedings in physics, electrical engineering and electronics, computing, and information technology, from 1896 to the present.
includes years from 1896-1969
Academic Search Premier
Our top pick for a few good articles on any subject. Good for basic journals and multidisciplinary topics. For in-depth research, also search engineering-specific databases above.
Web of Science
Search approximately 8,500 of the most prestigious, high impact research journals in the world back to 1900. Also provides cited reference searching to see who has cited whom.
Looking for one article?
Journal article citations usually look similar to this:
Authorname, A.B. (2008). "Title of article." Journal Name. Vol 25, issue 3, pages 47-58.
Search the Library Catalog for the Journal Name to see if UF subscribes to the journal.
You may see 2 records in the Catalog for your Journal Name.
- One record has a link to the online version of the journal, and tells you which years we have online.
- Another record tells you the library, call number (shelf location), and inventory (volumes and issues) that we have in print.
