How Do I Find an Article?

Are you looking for a specific article in a journal?

 

Our Catalogue

Our catalogue only allows you to search for printed journals in which an article has appeared.

You may, however, enter your reference in the MPG Citation Linker, and you will receive information as to whether electronic access is available or in which Institute the journal is available in which the article was published.

Are you looking for a specific article in a collected edition (conference publication, etc.) or in a commemorative book (Festschrift)?
Articles in collected editions and commemorative books may be searched for by selecting the search field “Contents”. In the meantime, approx. 26,000 tables of contents have been scanned for searches and are available. Included, amongst others, are all commemorative books and collected editions available at the library.
