Scientific American Archive (Discontinued)

As of June 1, the UC’s no longer have access to the Scientific American Archive online, the 1993 to date backfile that was on EBSCO.  The collection was pulled by Nature Publishing Group, who then moved the archive to, and the 10 UC campuses have chosen not to renew through NPG.

  • Selected articles (text, not PDF) are available from 2005 to date in Academic Search Complete. However, this is not perpetually guaranteed access.  If you had search alerts in SAA, you’ll need to recreate those alerts in Academic Search Complete.
  • The S&E Library continues to receive Scientific American in print, and we keep the older volumes onsite.

More information about the SAA discontinuation is available from CDL, and please feel free to contact Deborah Kegel or Teri Vogel if you have any questions.
