Online databases

In most areas of physics, various online searchable databases now provide the most convenient access to research literature.

  • arXiv.org The e-print archive is updated daily with new preprints in many areas, including high energy physics, astrophysics and cosmology, and condensed matter. Online full-text access back 1991/92 in most cases.
  • SPIRES The SPIRES database provides comprehensive coverage in high-energy physics back to the early 1970's, inlcuding bibliographic details and citations. Links to online versions either via the e-print archive, or journal websites.
  • NASA ADS The ADS database provides comprehensive coverage in astronomy and astrophysics. Links to online versions either via the e-print archive, or journal websites.
