Physics Library Guide: Databases

How to find information - a guide for Physics students


You can use the following databases to find journal articles related to Physics

Searching effectively


UCT Libraries subscribes to a large number of print and/or electronic journals relevant to Physics.

Remember that our catalogue and the Electronic Journals page tell you which journals and books we have access to, but they don't tell you which articles or chapters appear in them. For that you use indexes and databases. Find find a specific journal, go to our E-JournalPortal and type in the name of the Journal that you are looking for.

The library subcribes to selected IOP (Institute of Physics) Journals

Off Campus Login

Remember to use the off campus login when accessing databases from off campus. This is useful even when using Google Scholar since this allows pay walled items within UCT Libraries' subscriptions to be indexed.
