 Electronic journals library (EZB)

The e-journals available for the staff of the MPI-K are offered via the EZB-portal. The Electronic Journals Library is a service to facilitate the use of scholarly journals on the internet. It offers a fast, structured and unified interface to access full text articles online.

The availability of full text access is indicated by different colours according to the license situation of our institute:

Green Label ●  -> Free access to full text articles = Open Access

Yellow Label ● ->  Access to full text articles is granted to users of the MPI-K library on the basis of a subscription.

Red Label ● ->  No access to full texts as the MPI-K library does not have a current subscription to this journal. However, tables of contents and abstracts are generally available free of charge. The MPI-K library has no continuous subscription on the journal. Therefore, only some of the published volumes are accessible as full texts.

 Citation Linker

The Citioatn Linker will offer you MPG/SFX Services that are available for a specific article, journal or book, including links to the full text and other relevant resources. Enter all information you have in the appropriate form and click the MPG/SFX button.
