Access E-Journals with SFX Linking
SFX is a resource-linking technology that provides access to full-text of articles (if available), local holdings, or the option to download the citation to RefWorks or Endnote.
When searching citation databases, like Inspec or Web of Science, you will see a Find it at Stanford buttonClicking on this button will give you a list of full-text sources that are available. If no full-text resources are available, you can easily search Socrates or the UC catalog from the SFX menu.
SFX links are also now available in Socrates. If you search by a journal title, click on the Details or the @SU button to see the full-text options. Here’s an example:
1. Search Socrates by a journal, such as Journal of Engineering Materials and Technology
2. Click the @ SU or Details button to see the full-text options. In this case, the full-text is available from the Institute of Physics Journal. Clicking on Details will take you to the complete item description while clicking on @SU will just pop up the SFX menu.
3. After clicking on Details, you should see an SFX menu. Click the Go button. Note: sometimes you will end up at the journal page and have to navigate to the full-text of the article.
