The Library's major electrical engineering and computer science e-journals packages are:
Hardcopies of science and engineering journals which were published after 1980 are shelved in the Journal Back Issues Area on Floor 3 of the McClay Library.
Hardcopies of science and engineering journals which were published before 1981 are kept in the library store. Please ask at one of the library's Enquiry Desks, if you wish to consult any of them.
Apart from ABI/INFORM and Business Source Premier, the databases below only contain information about research papers, not the full-text. Use QConnect to link from the database to the full-text of an article.
The databases cover many more items than are available from the Library. If you find a paper which you cannot access online because the library doesn't subscribe to it, it can be requested via the Inter-Library Loans service.
Scopus is the world's largest bibliographic and citation database. A key resource for finding journal articles and conference proceedings in engineering and science disciplines. As well as carrying out literature searches, you can set up current awareness alerts, view citation counts, determine your h-index and assess the impact of journal titles. Scopus tutorials (video / text-only)
Web of Science gives access to citation databases, journals and conference proceedings with current and retrospective coverage in the sciences, engineering, social sciences, arts, and humanities. A good complement to Scopus. Web of Science tutorial (YouTube)
The Inspec Archive helps you discover journal articles and conference papers about computer science, electrical engineering and physics which were published between 1898 and 1968. To find more recent literature, search Scopus, the Web of Science or IEEE Xplore.
MathSciNet provides an index of international research literature in mathematics, including math-related research in computer science. It is produced by the American Mathematical Society. MathSciNet video tutorials
ABI/Inform Global is a comprehensive business database providing access to a wide range of journals and working paper series in full text. Useful for researching commercial aspects of electronics, electrical engineering, computer science and IT. ABI/Inform Global guide
Business Source Premier provides access to the online full text of over 2000 business journals. It also includes company information and market research literature. A great database for researching commercial aspects of electronics, electrical engineering, computer science and IT.
This will enable you to authenticate with your QUB ID card details and use the databases and e-journals when you are away from campus.
If you find a journal article that is particularly relevant to your research, a simple way of finding similar articles is to look for ones which have referred to your original. You can do this by using these databases:
