Neurosciences: Articles

Help with the basics of access to library and data resources related to Neurosciences

Best way to find articles is generally via databases. Most have indexing that helps with higher relevance in results retrieved. All databases also have the UC-eLinks button for retrieving full-text. Make an appointment with a librarian if you need help getting started.

Setting Up Google Scholar

Set up Google Scholar for full-text access

  3. Choose Library Links from the left-side menu
  4. Search for University of California, San Diego
  5. Mark check box next to option and click forward arrow
  6. Save

When you search for articles, you will now see a secondary column with additional links on the right.  Where you see UC-eLinks, you may click that link and it will take you to the article through the library databases.

Full-Text articles

FIND full-text of an article   
If a PDF isn't automatically available full-text in the database, use the yellowish-orange UC-eLinks button to find full-text. It will take you directly to the full-text or to the journal where you will navigate to the particular article. If no online link appears, use the Request It link for interlibrary loan access at no charge to you.
