Accessing Full Text

From the main Search Results screen, click on the CaltechConnect icon to check for access from the Caltech Library:

From an individual Web of Science record for  an article, it can be found in the upper left:

SOURCE: Web of Science on the Thomson Reuters Web of Knowledge platform, Copyright ©2016 Thomson Reuters All rights reserved.

Clicking on CaltechConnect will check our catalog to see if we have electronic access to the article. There may be multiple links, if we have access through multiple sources - be sure to choose the link that corresponds with the year or volume range that you need.

Sometimes, particularly for older (pre-1997) years of journals, the Library only has print copies available.

If the Library doesn't have any subscription to the journal, you can request a copy of the article via DocuServe, using the Request delivery via DocuServe link under Document Delivery & ILL. There is no charge to request copies of articles to which Caltech does not have access. (More information about DocuServe)
