For some assignments, our Discovery Service will give you enough sources to work with.

Sometimes you may want to try specific databases or journals - perhaps your lecturer has recommended particular names as a good way of finding articles. This page lists key sources for Mathematics:

Check out this video on how to find journal titles.

Check out this introductory video on finding journal articles.

If we don't have an item you're interested in, we may be able to obtain it via Interlibrary Loan.

Use these powerful tools to find out which articles are citing other articles, to follow up references and to see which are the most highly cited articles: (NB: Google Scholar - see above - also has a similar feature.  Look for the 'Cited by...' link.)

Watch this video for a brief introduction to citation searching.

• Scopus 


fully searchable in EBSCO Discovery

Web of Science - part of the Web of Knowledge collection of databases - consists of a number of databases containing information gathered from thousands of scholarly journals, books, book series, reports and conferences. Three citation databases (Science Citation Index Expanded (1970-), Social Sciences Citation Index and Arts (1975-) and Humanities Citation Index (1975-)) also contain the references cited by the authors of the articles. You can use these references to do cited reference searching, allowing you to find articles that cite a previously published work. Conference Proceedings Citation Index - Science includes the published literature of the most significant conferences, symposia, seminars, colloquia, workshops, and conventions in a wide range of scientific disciplines.
