Web search engines
Bibliographic databases (usually with abstracts)
- Web of Science, which has replaced BIDS for ISI searches.
- BIDS, including ingentaJournals (full-text access to many journals, e.g. EJN). BIDS uses the Athens authorization system.
- WebSpirs at Cambridge; includes MedLine from 1966 and PsycLIT from 1887.
- BioMedNet. An excellent collection of resources; includes databases of many journals (some with full-text access) and web searches by speciality. Requires subscription but this is free.
- FirstSearch database of databases from OCLC.
- PubMed from NLM (= MEDLINE).
- Cambridge Scientific Abstracts is quite good
Journals with full-text access
Note: several sites provide full-text access based on user registration, or relying on the University's institutional subscription (usually meaning you can only access the articles from a computer in the ".cam.ac.uk" domain).
To search for full-text articles for a given journal, I suggest the following order: (1) the list below; (2) Neurosciences on the Internet; (3) Neuroscion; (4) BIDS ingentaJournals; (5) PsychWatch; (6) the publisher's site; (7) general web search.
Publishers and journal collections
- Academic Press. Includes IDEAL (US, UK), full-text journals from Academic Press and selected journals from W.B. Saunders and Churchill Livingstone.
- American Psychological Association. With links to their journals.
- Blackwell Science. Includes Synergy online journals, for which registration is free but full-text access is restricted (pay per article). For EJN, use BIDS ingentaJournals instead.
- Cambridge University Press (UK, USA) with Journals Online - full text, requires registration, but few journals of interest)
- CogPrints electronic archive of papers in biology, computer science, linguistics, neuroscience, philosophy and psychology.
- Electronic psychology journals.An index from Hanover College (USA).
- Elsevier Science. ContentsDirect is an e-mail notification service; ScienceDirect is a full-text service to which we don't seem to subscribe.
- Lawrence Erlbaum Associates

Journals (information, table of contents or abstracts only)
The following haven't been assessed:
Research councils, funding organizations, societies
- Adobe Acrobat Reader, required to read PDF files. Most full-text articles are in this format. Free.
