Citation Linker: Finding the article when you have a citation

Sometimes you find an article in a bibliography, a book or a footnote -- and you want to see if we have it. The Citation Linker searches through our online databases to see if it is available fulltext. If not, it sets up a search for the paper journal in Melvyl. And if we don't have it at Berkeley, it lets you request it through Interlibrary Loan.

Primary vs. Secondary Sources in the Physical Sciences

Primary sources in the physical sciences are documents that provide a description of the original research. They haven't been filtered by a second party (other than peer review) and they tend to come first in the publication cycle. A secondary source will contain commentary on or discussion of a primary source.
