Search for articles

Note! Only in universities' portals.

In article search you can search for international articles, e-books and peer-reviewed research publications from various fields of science and publishers.

Most of the licensed databases subscribed by the universities are included in the Primo Central Index. However for example Ebsco's databases are not fully covered in PCI Index. All comprehensive seaches should always be done also in database's own user interfaces.
