Who should use this database?

Those looking for pre-print articles in physics, materials, chemistry, mathematics, biology, environmental sciences and other areas. This database provides a means of searching several pre-print servers at once.

What kinds of materials are referenced in the database?

Pre-prints: generally, preprints are manuscripts that have not yet been published, but may have been reviewed and accepted; submitted for publication; or intended for publication and being circulated for comment. Preprints may also be referred to as "e-prints". Many e-prints are electronic versions of research papers that have been submitted for dissemination and review among peers; for publication in journals; or prior to presentation at conferences. Some preprint servers may define preprints as any electronic work circulated by the author outside of the traditional publishing environment.

What years does the database cover?

Varies by server.

Will I find full-text articles in the database?

Yes.
