How to quickly find the full text of a journal article
- If you find a reference to an interesting article in a bibliographic database or a different information retrieval system, you will often find as well a link to the full article in pdf provided by the publisher.
- You can look up the article straightaway in LibrarySearch. If it is in the TU/e collection you find a direct link to the full text.
- If you can find a link to full text via a direct link to the publisher, then Google Scholar may still offer an alternative.
If all this is not the case you can file a request to have the book or article sent over from outside TU/e. However, a fee is charged for this service. To find out more go to Requesting publications from elsewhere.
Publications from TU/e itself you can best look up in the TU/e Repository.

*) Bibliographic reference = data like author, title, year of publication etc. ISBN and ISSN numbers are not recommended as search keys, as these do not yet yield good results.
