Mathematics & Statistics: Articles

Full-Text Articles

Databases often allow you to download articles directly. Even if they don't, the library may still have the item. Try clicking the  button next to the citation. The window that opens will tell you if the library owns a print or electronic copy.

If the item is not in the GSU Library, you can request it via our Interlibrary Loan service. Using the Interlibrary Loan link in the Find It @ GSU window will fill out all the information for you.

Search and Citation Alerts

Search Alerts notify you by e-mail when a stored search retrieves new results on a daily, weekly or monthly basis (depending on the database).  Not all databses have alerts.  Generally, one performs a search and then saves the search (e.g., in the Search History) to create the alert. 

By setting up an Author Citation Alert once, users will receive a notification each time the author(s) work has been cited in a database.
