Abstract Management, Conference Management and Research Search Engine Free Academic Open Access Books, Journals and Research Papers Oxford Open | Oxford Open OUP Supports Open Access Oxford University Press (OUP) is mission-driven to facilitate the widest possible dissemination of high-quality research. We embrace both green and gold open access (OA) publishing to support this mission. A Proven Track Record of Success OUP has been publishing OA content since 2004. We have also successfully launched or taken over high-quality OA titles, including: Genome Biology and Evolution, Journal of Legal Analysis, Progress of Theoretical and Experimental Physics, and Database. OUP facilitates green OA either by allowing authors to deposit versions of their manuscripts in institutional or subject repositories after a specified time period, or depositing the version of record on their behalf. Supporting the Evolution of Open Access Publishing Sustainable, high-quality OA publishing requires either funding to be available to pay for Article Processing Charges, sponsorship, or suitable embargo periods. Oxford Journals operates two different open access models:

JournalSeek - A Searchable Database of Online Scholarly Journals Top Thesis & Dissertation References on the Web: OnlinePhDprogram.org A Master’s Thesis or Doctoral Dissertation is the capstone of many graduate programs. It requires a monumental amount of effort to put together the original research, citations, and sheer writing time to finish. Many students cruise through their master’s and PhD coursework without breaking a sweat, only to be stonewalled when it comes time to write a long, in-depth dissertation that contributes original material to the student’s chosen field. Bluntly, finishing a thesis or dissertation is hard, and nobody can do it alone. These websites are the best resources available online to those who need to buckle down and finish a Master’s Thesis or Doctoral Dissertation. It is impossible to do original research in any field without reading the work that has come before. Writing and research styles can be completely different from one discipline to the next. The dissertation or thesis is a different type of project than most people have ever done before they reach grad school.

List of academic databases and search engines Wikipedia list article This article contains a representative list of notable databases and search engines useful in an academic setting for finding and accessing articles in academic journals, institutional repositories, archives, or other collections of scientific and other articles. Databases and search engines differ substantially in terms of coverage and retrieval qualities.[1] Users need to account for qualities and limitations of databases and search engines, especially those searching systematically for records such as in systematic reviews or meta-analyses.[2] As the distinction between a database and a search engine is unclear for these complex document retrieval systems, see: the general list of search engines for all-purpose search engines that can be used for academic purposesthe article about bibliographic databases for information about databases giving bibliographic information about finding books and journal articles.

Academic Search Engines Additional Resources Information and Tips A note on Authoritative Regardless of where you find information, it is important to evaluate the source of it, especially if you are using it for decision-making or in an educational setting. This page has been built to point mostly to authoritative sources (excepting the “general purpose” section), however sources should always be examined carefully. Practically every library has a tutorial on this so I will simply point to evaluating sources on Google; most of the results there are good tutorials. Search Engines and Directories The first three tools listed in this category are directories compiled by consortiums of universities. ipl2 was formed from the merger of two prior academic directories, the Internet Public Library and LII, Librarians’ Index to the Internet. iSEEK and Virtual LRC are more like traditional search engines, but similarly limited to preselected academic sources.
