Periodical Articles and Conference Papers
New developments and current research are often first presented as conference papers and/or periodical articles. You will also find product reviews, descriptions of methodology, or information on innovations in or applications of particular processes, systems and devices. The following are indexes, abstracts or full-text repositories which access this literature:
- ACM Digital Library
A repository of materials published by ACM, the Association for Computing Machinery, this database includes the full text of journal, magazine, transactions, and conference proceedings titles; ACM materials will display the ACM logo to the left of the citation.
- Applied Science and Technology Full Text (1983-current w/abstracts since 1994)
Find product reviews and news related (computer science/ engineering) information. Indexes articles in 800 English-language periodicals.
- Computer Source (1985-current)
Find articles from computing and information technology publications in the areas of computer science, information systems, programming, robotics and software. Full-text from nearly 300 publications are included, with abstracting for 450 periodicals.
- IEEE Xplore
This repository contains full-text materials published by IEEE, the Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineers, and IET, the Institution of Engineering and Technology. The IEEE/IET Electronic Library (IEL) includes full-text access to IEEE Society-sponsored transactions and conference proceedings, IEEE/Wiley books, IET proceedings journals, IET conference proceedings and IEEE Standards.
- INSPEC (1898-current)
INSPEC primarily covers periodical articles and conference papers (1898-current) but also includes some books, dissertations and reports. Over 4000 serials covering topics in electrical engineering, physics, computers and control are included.
Compendex, GEOBASE and INSPEC are searched jointly on the Engineering Village Platform. To search only one of the databases, on the advanced search page, remove the check in the box to the left of the database you do not wish to search by clicking on the box. The check mark will be removed and that database will not be searched.
- ScienceDirect (1997-current)
Contains full-text articles from over 1700 journals published by Elsevier. Although the content is multi-disciplinary, the primary focus is science, engineering and medicine. Table of contents information is available for publication years before 1997.
- Web of Science (1900-current)
This multi-discplinary index includes article information from approximately 8,500 journals in sciences, engineering, social sciences, arts and humanities. A key feature of this index is the cited reference search, which searches for the articles that have cited a particular author’s work, or a specific article.
