Energy Research: Pathfinder for the Advanced Power & Energy Program (APEP): Finding Articles - Using Databases



Additional information about BrowZine is available here.

Migration to SciFinder-n beginning June 16, 2020

  • We will have both versions, SciFinder-N and SciFinder Classic. CAS has not yet set a sunset date for old SciFinder.
  • We don’t need to do anything different with our registration links. SciFinder accounts will work with both versions, even though SciFinder-N isn’t mentioned on the actual registration pages at CAS. You will need to transfer the "Keep Me Posted" alerts manually because they will not transfer over automatically.
  • Anyone who has a SciFinder account now can go to and login.

Finding Articles and Databases

There are many, literally hundreds of databases containing journal articles, conference papers, books, book chapters and other information sources.  They can be found in Databases A-Z and on most Subject Guides on tabs titled "Finding Articles/Using Databases" and similar names.

Conference Papers, Proceedings, Abstracts, Posters, Literature

Selective access to full-text content via Library Search, MELVYL, and the indexing tools and databases, see Scopus,  Compendex and Inspec.

Specialized Full-text Resources

Professional Society Databases

Commercial Publishers' Platforms

Many publishers have their own platforms which can be searched for fulltext content and they usually contain all outputs for journals, conference papers/proceedings, books, and whatever else is released.  The UCI Libraries may only access to a  portion of the holdings because we do not have active subscriptions or licenses to everything.  If you are unavailable to access what you need, please contact the Engineering Librarian or submit an InterLibrary Loan request.  These publishers may include:
