Physics Today Archive

UCSD now has the Physics Today Archive online, from 1985 to 12 months ago. AIP plans to digitize all issues back to the magazine’s launch in 1948 to create a complete archive.

The archive does not include the last 12 months, but some of the content in those issues is freely available (and we do have them at the S&E Library).

Older German Chem Journals – Now Online

UCSD now has online access to several key German chemistry journals….back to Year One.

Categories: Journals

ACS Nano – Issue 1

The first issue ACS Nano is now available.

ACS Nano publishes comprehensive articles on synthesis, assembly, characterization, theory, and simulation of nanostructures (nanomaterials and assemblies, nanodevices, and self-assembled structures), nanobiotechnology, nanofabrication, methods and tools for nanoscience and nanotechnology, and self- and directed-assembly.

ACS Nano will also have an RSS feed to keep up with new articles, and a podcast to highlight articles and news from the journal.

Journal Citation Reports (2006)

The Biomedical Library has received the 2006 JCR Science Edition, which they’ll keep on reserve. If you need a few impact factors, call the BML Reference Desk at 858/534-1201 or send an email to

Annals NY Academy of Sciences Backfile

UCSD’s access to the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences has been extended back to 1879.

    Please keep in mind:

  • There is a gap in coverage between 1879-1892.
  • Regarding preprints: You’ll find this journal has many links in PubMed flagged as “epub ahead of print.” For those items, you will find they are on the Academy’s own site at and the UC E-Links for those articles will not work. (h/t: BML Blog).
  • Do not use the site to get the published articles. Our access is through the Blackwell-Synergy site, and is accessible from UC-eLinks, Roger, etc.

Facelift for UC-eLinks

The UC-eLinks display has been tweaked and re-organized into a more logical display.

If you access UC-eLinks from a citation in one the databases, you’ll see something like this, where your options are arranged based on 1.) Get it online, 2.) Get it in print at UCSD, and 3.) Request it via Interlibrary Loan.


If you access UC-eLinks from a journal record in Roger, it’ll look like this:

Journal of Fluid Mechanics Archive

jfm.jpgUCSD now has access to 40 years of articles in the Journal of Fluid Mechanics archive, volumes 1-329 (1956-1996).

Additional UCSD Libraries- and CDL-funded purchases of scientific and engineering journal and database backfiles are in the works and will be announced as they come online. If you have suggestions or questions, please use the S&E purchase suggestion form, or contact Teri Vogel or Deborah Kegel.

New Journals: Physics, Chemistry, Engineering

We now have trial (until the end of 2007) access to the following Wiley Interscience Journals:

If you find any of these journals useful in your research, please contact Deborah Kegel or Teri Vogel. Your feedback will help us when we need to decide about licensing these titles after the trial period ends.

Nature Nanotechnology & Nature Photonics

Nature’s newest journals, Nature Nanotechnology and Nature Photonics, are now available at UCSD.

The multidisciplinary Nature Nanotechnology (launched Fall 2006) will publish significant and quality papers covering all aspects of nanoscience and nanotechnology, including “the design, characterization and production of structures, devices and systems that involve the manipulation and control of materials and phenomena at atomic, molecular and macromolecular scales.” Along with research articles, readers will also get news and views, review articles, letters, commentary, book reviews and research highlights.

Launched this year, Nature Photonics seeks to publish the same high-level quality research as other NPG physical sciences journals, covering everything from “the fundamental properties of light and how it interacts with matter through to the latest designs of optoelectronic device and emerging applications that exploit photons.” Readers can expect to find articles on topics like lasers, sensors, biophotonics, and quantum optics. Along with research and review articles, research highlights, letters and news and views, Nature Photonics will also take a look at the technology/business side with sections like “Out of the Lab” and “Product Focus.”

Changes to Journal of Physical Chemistry

ACS’s Journal of Physical Chemistry titles have been revamped for 2007, with the launch of a third journal and a reorganization of the journals’ scopes.

  • Journal of Physical Chemistry A – Dynamics, Kinetics, Environmental Chemistry, Spectroscopy, Structure, Theory

    • Dynamics, Clusters, Excited States; Kinetics, Spectroscopy; Atmospheric, Environmental and Green Chemistry; Molecular Structure, Quantum Chemistry, General Theory
  • Journal of Physical Chemistry B – Condensed Matter and Biophysical Chemistry
    • Macromolecules, Soft Matter; Surfactants, Membranes; Statistical Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Medium Effects; Biophysical Chemistry
  • Journal of Physical Chemistry C (launched January 2007) – Nanomaterials and Interfaces
    • Nanoparticles and Nanostructures; Surfaces, Interfaces, Catalysis; Electron Transport, Optical and Electronic Devices; Energy Conversion and Storage

More information about these changes can be found at the Journal of Physical Chemistry C site.
