Online Resources for Engineering

On this list of article databases and other tools for Engineering, you can see a description of each one by clicking the information button next to its name.

  • Note: See the list of journals and other publications included in Compendex by clicking on Compendex Source List

The list of databases and tools for Computer Science and Security is slightly different from the Engineering list.

Conference Papers

OSTI (Office of Scientific and Technical Information) provides access to the huge collection of DoE's publications.

  • Their Science Conference Proceedings portal searches 26 national labs and professional societies for citations to conference papers.
  • There is some overlap with other databases, but proceedings can be tough to find so this is another source.
