An electronic journal (ejournal, e-journal, ej, etc.) is a digitized or online version of a printed journal, such as the Physical Review A. Like most ejournals, this journal exists in both print and electronic formats. Collectively, the Case libraries provide access to thousands of electronic journals. This includes journals that are licensed independently by the Case libraries, journals in the OhioLINK Electronic Journal Center, and a select number of journals that are freely available over the World Wide Web.
Users should be aware that many titles licensed by Case are not accessible from the OhioLINK EJC. An example of this is Science Online, the Web version of Science Magazine.
A database is a collection of information organized into a particular format. Every item in a database has its own record and each of these records is itself divided into specific fields of information (e.g., author, title, etc.) In this respect, a telephone book can be defined as a database.
An electronic research database is a computerized collection of information in digital format. The Case libraries provide access to several hundred research databases, many of which include the full text of journal and newspaper articles. View Research Databases for a complete list of databases provided by the Case Libraries.
Users should be aware that several titles subscribed by Case are not accessible from the OhioLINK Research Databases list. An example of this is IEEE Xplore. IEEE Xplore provides full text access to IEEE transactions, journals, magazines and conference proceedings published since 1988 and all current IEEE standards.
