Bibliographic databases can be used to locate journal articles, conference proceedings, books and patents on a particular subject or by a particular author.
If you are on campus you can access most databases & e-journals directly. For off-campus access start at SOLO and log in with your Oxford Single Sign-On.
Alternatively you can search Databases A-Z (All subjects list)
Many bibliographic databases allow you to set search alerts which will automatically inform you of new publications issued on topics that are of interest to you.
To set up a search alert you will normally have to take 4 steps:
Citation alerts can be set to automatically notify you when a particular research article or conference paper is cited by a new publication appearing in a bibliographic database.
Want to know who is citing you?
Some databases also allow you to set up citation alerts to an author rather than a single publication. You can use citation alerting to help you keep track of who is citing your own work. Citation alerts can be set up on scientific literature databases such as SCOPUS and Web of Science.
Archives, subject repositories, e-print servers and institutional repositories are additional sources of full-text articles and other publications.
