Access Online to Published Literature

A few sites on the Web act as "digital libraries" at no fee. The following sites provide search capabilities as well as retrieval of full text articles.

Wiley InterScience provides online abstracts and full texts of journals in the fields of business, finance and management, information and computer science, education, law, and psychology. You first need to register with Wiley InterScience which takes two minutes and is free. Then you have two services available:

  1. Journal finder, where you can browse the current issues of many journals and look at their table of contents. If an article is of interest, you can download its full text as a pdf file; and
  2. Simple search, where you can enter a keyword or sentence and search for it in all the journals online or in the journals of your choice.

You can also download the full text of your results.
