AAPT is a strong professional physics science society dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in physical science education. The teacher resources include two peer reviewed journals, digital collections of high-quality educational materials in physics and astronomy, and a Physical Sciences Resource Center.
The SAO/NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS) is a Digital Library portal for researchers in Astronomy and Physics, operated by the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory (SAO) under a NASA grant. The ADS maintains three bibliographic databases containing more than 9.2 million records: Astronomy and Astrophysics, Physics, and arXiv e-prints. The main body of data in the ADS consists of bibliographic records, which are searchable through highly customizable query forms, and full-text scans of much of the astronomical literature which can be browsed or searched via our full-text search interface. Integrated in its databases, the ADS provides access and pointers to a wealth of external resources, including electronic articles, data catalogs and archives. We currently have links to over 9.2 million records maintained by our collaborators. Free full text - managed by publisher, holdings subject to change
Cambridge Books Online offers access to Cambridge University Press publications. The Library has access to selected collections only. From September 2016 titles are available via the Cambridge Core platform alongside Cambridge Companions, Histories and Journals.
The publishing house of S. Hirzel specializes in the fields of chemistry, physics (particularly acoustics), Germanic languages and literatures, and philosophy. The journal "Acta Acustica united with Acustica" was founded in 1936 as the "Akustische Zeitschrift", later becoming "Acustica" in 1951. Since 1996 is has been published in cooperation with the European Acoustics Association (EAA).
Inspec is a leading bibliographic database providing access to the world's scientific literature in: electrical engineering; electronics; physics; control engineering; information technology; communications; computers; computing; manufacturing and production engineering. Inspec combined with the Inspec Archive provides coverage from 1898 to the present day. The database is updated weekly.
IOPscience is an online service for journal content published by IOP Publishing. IOPscience embraces innovative technologies to make it easier for researchers to access scientific, technical and medical content. It provides a range of journals, magazines, websites and services that enable researchers and research organisations to reach the widest possible audience for their research. The Library has access to the IOP Journal Archive, with over 206,000 articles published between 1874-2002; and the Turpion Journal Archive, which contains articles published between 1958-2002; and the IOP current journal collection with access to articles published from 2003 to the present day.
Optics ImageBank enables users to browse and search across over 200,000 images from OSA’s core journals hosted on Optics InfoBase. This database features the ability to: View a full-size image of a figure ; Export images into PowerPoint or PDF files for classroom use ; Scroll through all of the images within the article ; Browse by related scientific images to discover related scientific articles across OSA's core titles. Related images are identified when the OCIS (Optics Classification and Indexing Scheme) codes of the source article match closely with OCIS codes of another article.
From astrophysics to quantum physics, materials science to optoelectronics, this unified e-library offers fundamental theories and contemporary investigations of time, matter, and space. It includes many volumes from the world-renowned Institute of Physics.
The Royal Society is a Fellowship of many of the world's most eminent scientists and is the oldest scientific academy in continuous existence. Royal Society's position on Open Access can be viewed here: https://royalsociety.org/news/2013/open-access-position/
SciFinder is a research discovery tool that allows you to explore the CAS databases containing literature from many scientific disciplines including biomedical sciences, chemistry, engineering, materials science, agricultural science, and more.
SPIE eBooks provides access to the monograph publications of SPIE. The collection includes: Press Monographs - authoritative reference works, texts, and handbooks ; Tutorial Texts - works covering fundamental and emerging topics at introductory and intermediate levels ; Field Guides - concise quick-reference guides to key information that students, practicing engineers, and scientists need in the lab and in the field.
SPIE Journals publish peer-reviewed articles on applied research in optics and photonics. Covering topics such as optical engineering, electronic imaging, biomedical optics, microlithography, remote sensing, and nanophotonics. SPIE also publishes open-access articles on important emerging technology areas in SPIE Letters and SPIE Reviews.
Zentralblatt MATH (zbMATH) is the world’s most comprehensive and longest running abstracting and reviewing service in pure and applied mathematics. The zbMATH database contains more than 3 million bibliographic entries with reviews or abstracts currently drawn from more than 3,000 journals and serials, and 170,000 books. The coverage starts in 1826 and is complete from 1868 to the present by the integration of the “Jahrbuch über die Fortschritte der Mathematik” database.
