Finding Journal Articles, Conference Papers/Proceedings, News Stories, and related research content

There are many different sources to consult for coverage of the academic and scholarly as well as trade journal literature.  This list corresponds to those topics that lend themselves to coverage in the planning, policy and design contexts.  Please consult the reference librarians for additional assistance. * denotes that this database can be searched in conjunction with other databases on the CSA Platform to reduce replication, but some search refinement functionality may be lost.     ** means that a common interface is available via the EBSCO platform.


The University of California and UCI have many publishing partners.  As a result fulltext access is available to a growing number of journals.  A list of the selective publishers and platforms follows and a full list is available noting the publisher and platform name and interfiled.

Access to Elsevier Journals 2019+

The UC in not renewing its subscription to the Elsevier Journal package for 2019 now dictates that content from those journals be requested via ILL.  Two methods can be used: 1) use the Request function from the UC eLinks in most databases or 2) populate this request form with the citation.  Delivery is free & fast but not immediate and requires planning for access.  The pdf of the article will be sent to your eMail address.
