Physics and Astronomy Research Guide: Find Articles - Databases

A guide to physics and astronomy resources at Columbia University Libraries.

Find Scholarly Articles

To find scholarly articles or studies, you will need to use a database (not CLIO). Databases contain collections of articles, book chapters, conference proceedings, and may also contain newspaper/magazine articles.

These large, interdisciplinary databases are a great place to start:

  • Scopus - provides indexing, abstracting of, and citation linking to journals in biology, physics, chemistry, geosciences, agriculture, medicine, business, social work, and the social sciences.
  • Web of Science - indexes core journal articles, conference proceedings, data sets, and other resources in the sciences, social sciences, arts, and humanities.
