Find Articles

A guide to the major print and online resources in physics.

Journals List

To find journal titles that the BC Libraries provide on subscription, search the Journals list by title.
You can also search the Catalog to find physics journals included in our collections.  Using the Advanced Search you can limit by subject to a specific area;  combine that with a Material Type search on "Journals/Serials" to limit your search to journals.

The Major Journal Indexes for Physics

Use these tools to find on-topic journal articles, and, often, other types of literature.  Search several of them to be comprehensive.  

Other Indexes and Databases to Try

Where's the Article?

If you search a database and the full article's not there, don't despair.  Look for the "FindIt" button:  or FindIt@BC.  Find It will offer help including:

  1. If BC has the full text in another database, you will be taken to a list of databases for the full text. 
  2. If BC subscribes to the print journal where the article appeared, the Catalog will say Find in Library and you can check which library or libraries may have the year/issue you need and where it is located.
  3. If the article is not available online or in print at BC, use the link to Request the item. We can usually get the article from another library within a few days and email it to you.
