PSCB90 Physical Sciences Research Experience

Welcome to the research guide for PSCB90. This guide will help you become familiar with relevant research tips & resources for your project.

Finding specific articles

You can find specific articles several different ways, including:

  • Google Scholar (Refer to the "Google Scholar" page in this guide)
  • Directly through a journal's website. Expert Tip: Search for a journal in the library catalogue, click the catalogue record link for the journal then browse/search the journal website. If you simply Google the journal website and search for an article, you likely won't be able to access the full text. Alternatively, if you choose not to start your search from the library website and you're using Chrome or Edge browser, you can install an extension called LibKey Nomad. It will link you to the PDF of articles owned by U of T or open access. If you're on a journal website, you can also try pasting in front of the URL you're currently on.  You will then be prompted to log in with your UTORid to access the full text.

    caution icon This only works if the library actually subscribes to the journal.
