Subject Guide for Physics
Last Updated: Aug 24, 2012
The purpose of this subject guide is to identify for you the best places to begin your research, whether for writing your latest paper or looking for information to help move your research project forward. The resources identified here are ones that are most commonly used for researching topics tied to physics. Don't be surprised if I add or update the resources listed here. The goal is to ensure that you have the best and most current information. Also, be aware that the resources listed here are just some of the resources that you have at your disposal - there is always more and I am happy to help you find what you need. Just contact me or SEL using the information on the right.
While some of the resources in this guide are freely available, most research databases and electronic journals and many online library services have access restrictions that require that you be a current UT Arlington student, faculty member, or staff member. See this page for help.
