Research Guide for Materials Science: Journals and Conference Proceedings

Remote Access

If you are a full current member of the University of Oxford, you can access most library electronic resources off-campus.

Use your Single Sign On (SSO)

Go to SOLO and click on Oxford Single Sign On (top right). For most of our e-books and e-journals this is all you need.

If you do not know your SSO details please visit the SSO section of the IT Services website .

VPN (Virtual Private Network)

Only necessary for a few library resources. With VPN you can access the University network as if you were on campus. Register with IT Services.

Finding Journals and Conference Proceedings

Journals and Conference Proceedings

The Bodleian Libraries subscribe to a large range of journals and conference proceedings electronically. Search by title using SOLO or e-Journals A-Z.

If an electronic version is not available, we may have it in print copy. Print copies of journals and conference proceedings are held in the closed stack at our Book Storage Facility in Swindon. They can be located and requested using SOLO.

Pre-prints and author manuscripts

Many academic institutions now collect peer-reviewed author manuscripts and pre-prints from their academics into digital repositories. This can provide easy open access to high quality scientific publications. You can find repositories and search their contents using the OpenDOAR directory.

Document Supply

If Oxford doesn't have an article or book, you may be able to get it through our Interlibrary Loan Service:
