Welcome to UC San Diego's Online Guide for International Physicians

UC San Diego is a public institution and is open to the public.  You are welcome to come into the library and use both our print and electronic resources.  We have a number of clinically relevant tools. 

Also on this guide is a list of freely available internet resources.

Since access to full-text articles can be a challenge when not here on campus, the Hinari information below can help your institution at home increase their access to full-text articles and books.  Additionally, you can take advantage of the growing open or public access mandates related to government or university research.  Some you can find in Google Scholar, but a browser app, UnPayWall helps make it easier.  

Hinari for International Physicians

For physicians from developing countries, the HINARI project helps increase access to medical information with its collection of online medical journals.  For details on which countries and types of institutions qualify for this access, please see the HINARI web site. 


HINARI also has a list of journals that are open access for everyone as well as the journals in their collection.  You can search by subject area,  language, or publisher.  Check out the full-text options.
