Databases often allow you to download articles directly. Even if they don't, the library may still have the item. Try clicking the "Find It @ GSU" 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.
You can search Google Scholar for "Full Text @ GSU" off-campus.

Search & Citation Alerts
Search Alertsnotify you by e-mail when a stored search retrieves new results on a daily, weekly or monthly basis (depending on the database). Generally, one performs a search and then saves the search to create the alert. Although not all databases have alerts, those that do (e.g. Web of Science) usually allow you to set up different kinds of search alerts.
Author Citation Alert - receive a notification each time the author's work has been cited in a database.
Finding Articles: Databases
Use these databases and collections of journals to find scholarly articles for most topics in Chemistry.
SciFinder LibGuide | SciFinder Scholar allows for seamless and comprehensive searching of 5 Chemical Abstracts Services databases (plus MEDLINE). First-time users must register for an account. SciFinder Scholar Help
Web of Science Help | Searches articles in over 7,100 science journals, including what papers are cited in and citing each article. Use for citation chasing, preliminary searches on a topic, interdisciplinary work, and finding more articles like one you've read.
PubMed LibGuide | Developed and maintained by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) at the US National Library of Medicine (NLM), located at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This resource contains citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books in the fields of life sciences, behavioral sciences, chemical sciences, and bioengineering.
Reaxys LibGuide | Reaxys (from Elsevier) contains an extensive repository of experimentally organic, inorganic and organometallic chemical data that chemists need including structures, reactions (including multi-step reactions) and physical properties.
Academic Search Complete provides complete coverage of multidisciplinary academic journals. The collection includes peer-reviewed journals, full-text periodicals, reports, and books, for STM research, the Social Sciences, Humanities, and other areas of academic studies. PDF content dates back as far as 1887.
ScienceDirect Help ScienceDirect is a Web database for scientific research that contains the full text of more than 1,000 Elsevier Science journals in the life, physical, medical, technical, and social sciences available through the Internet.
Use these links to search within specific journals or journals from a certain publisher. You can also explore open access (freely available) chemistry journals.
The directory lists fully and partly free journals that comply with the following criteria: publisher's grading of a journal as peer-reviewed; one-year, at least, free full-text content, or extensive free supplements to printed versions of papers; chemistry or chemistry-related subject coverage; English language of articles (journals in Russian are also listed on a separate page).
The Academy's journals are 'open access' and full text is available as PDF files on each journal's website.
Finding Dissertations, Conference Papers, and Proceedings
Not all scientific information is published in journals. If you're looking for everything written on a topic, especially recent developments, check these sources to find conference papers, meeting proceedings, and dissertations.
IEEE Xplore Help | IEEE Xplore is an online delivery system that provides full text access to IEEE´s transactions, journals, magazines and conference proceedings published since 1988 plus select content back to 1950, and all current IEEE standards.
Since 1965, InterDok has identified resulting material from 280,000+ conferences, congresses, meetings & symposia.
SMILES | InChi
SMILES -Simplified Molecular Input Line Entry Specification. A notation for describing chemical molecules. SMILES can be imported by molecule editors for conversion to 2d or 3d structures.
e.g., Ethanol (C2H5OH) =CCO
InChi - International Chemical Identifier. A notation for describing chemical molecules. Developed by IUPAC and NIST as a standard to encode molecules. InChi can be imported by molecule editors for conversion to 2d or 3d structures.
