Selected Engineering Databases

This is a list of selected databases that index scholarly literature, including peer-reviewed journals, technical reports, and conference proceedings, in engineering, science, and technology.

Some databases provide access to complete documents (full-text), whereas others offer citations and/or abstracts only but often have direct links to full-text articles within Cornell's subscribed content.
