The following e-journal packages all give access to research papers on chemistry and chemical engineering:
To find a specific e-journal, please check the Library's e-journals A-Z list:
Hardcopies of journals published from 1981 to the present are shelved in the Journals Area on the 3rd floor.
The pre-1981 journals are kept in the Library Store - please ask at the Borrower Services Desk on the ground floor if you wish to consult any of them.
If you just need a few journal articles on your topic, use the QCat Article Search or an ejournal package such as the RSC journals. They will deliver online full-text immediately.
If you need a comprehensive overview of journal articles or conference papers, use the databases below, as they have wider coverage and more search options. They don't contain the online full text of articles and papers, so you will need to use the QConnect service to link to the full-text in other databases.
The databases cover many more items than are available from Queen's University Library. If you want to read an article which you cannot access, it can be requested via the Inter-Library Loans service.
Extensive database of chemical literature. Use it to find journal articles and patent records, as well as chemical substances and reactions. You can search by topic, author, or substances by name. Alternatively, use the editor to draw chemical structures, substructures, or reactions. Produced by Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS)
The world's largest bibliographic and citation database. It covers nearly 20,000 academic journals from chemistry, chemical engineering and other science and engineering subjects. Great for finding academic journal articles and conference papers. Good complement to the Web of Science.
Extensive bibliographic and citation database. Covers key academic journals from chemistry, chemical engineering and other science and engineering subjects. Great source of information on academic journal articles and conference papers. Good complement to Scopus.

Great for finding older journal articles and conference papers from all areas of engineering. Use Scopus or Web of Science for more recent content.
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:
These RSC databases are useful for keeping track of the latest research papers.
