ScienceDirect provides scientific, technical, and medical research across four collections totaling over 19 million journal articles and 43,000 eBooks:
Keyword searching is available at the top of each page of ScienceDirect. You can include author names, journal title, and volume/issue information by entering those parameters into the specified field. Selecting the "Advanced search" link will take you to a separate page with additional search fields and options that you want returned in your results list.
Once you have performed your search, your results list should be populated with a few options. You may be suggested a journal, individual articles, or books. The column on the left of the screen contains limiters that will help narrow down your results by publication year, publication type, or whether the article is Open Access. Some articles will have full text available (Download PDF), but some are only available as abstracts. When you find an abstract and would like to get full text access, request the article through ILLiad.
