Guide for international students at ÅAU: Databases

Browse databases within your field of science

Types of databases:

  • ​Full-text databases include access to full-texts and references
  • Reference databases include references, not necessarily access to full-texts which then must be retrieved elsewhere
  • Citation databases include information on citations, such as how many times a text has been cited, who has cited what..

Most databases are combinations of these types, which means that they sometimes provide access to full-texts, sometimes only to an abstract

How to read a scholarly journal article?

Google Scholar

You can easily access the library's e-resources by using Google Scholar's library links.
Activate library links (Google Scholar -> Settings), and your search results will include full-text links for articles your university subscribes to.
