New in 2014: E-Journals

Laura Tobler, Dr. Maura Vonmoos, Dr. Lothar Nunnenmacher, 13. February 2014

Lib4RI has licensed or purchased some new e-journals. As part of this, we have strongly expanded the access to physics journals:

AIP Proceedings have been added to the journals of the American Institute of Physics (AIP).

• Three Journals of the American Vacuum Society (AVS) have been newly licensed: Journal of Vacuum Science & Technology A, Journal of Vacuum Science & Technology B and Surface Science Spectra.

• The journals Medical Physics (American Association of Physicists in Medicine, AAPM), American Journal of Physics (American Association of Physics Teachers, AAPT) and the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America (Acoustical Society of America, ASA) used to be available at only one institute. They are now available for all our users.

• Access to the journals of the American Physical Society (APS), however, had to be reduced significantly due to the intended enormous price increases by the society. News about this will follow soon.

• We offer two one-year trials to the following Ebsco journal databases: Engineering Source gives access to more than 3,000 journal titles with full-text in engineering, energy, computer and related science from various publishers. Environment Complete is a database providing access to a variety of journals focusing on the subject of environment from diverse publishers. This database includes more than 2.4 million records from more than 2200 titles dating back to 1888 and full text for nearly 1200 journals and monographs.

• All e-journals of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) are available on an annual trial basis.

Further additions:

• We bought all backfiles of the National Research Council of Canada (NRC). Together with the current journals and the new purchase of the NRC e-books we provide you access to the whole range of NRC products.

• The Annual Review (AR) Science Collection is expanded by three new journals.

• Five individual journals, recommended by our users, have been added to our collection: ChemCatChem, ChemSusChem, Diseases of aquatic organisms, IEEE Transactions on geoscience and remote sensing (access back to 2005) and Spektrum der Wissenschaft.

All the e-journals Lib4RI is offering are listed in the Lib4RI Journal List. You can browse or search journals by title, publisher or subject. A very convenient search option is also the Lib4RI Searchbox on the top of every page of our website.

Should you encounter access problems or have questions concerning our e-journals, do not hesitate to contact us at What do you think about the new products and trials? We value your feedback.
