Where do I find full texts of research papers?

We are a bibliography service and not a document repository or delivery service. Hence, dblp does neither provide full texts nor abstracts of research articles.

Usually, research papers are subject to copyright law and it would be illegal for dblp to provide access to the full texts. The same is true for the abstracts of research papers.

Many papers indexed by dblp have been published only in printed journals or proceedings. You may find them in your local library or order them from the publisher or a commercial delivery service.

Whenever we know of an external website that hosts an electronic edition of a research paper we provide a hyperlink together with the bibliographic meta-data. To access the electronic version of articles provided by publishers you may have to subscribe their service. dblp plays the role of an information broker which only refers you to another service provider.

Please understand that we do not answer any requests for research papers.
