Use the search box to search the library's information resources. To limit your search to journals, articles etc., press Filter, select one of the options and enter your search terms.
Articles: Your search is limited to articles from journals. From your search results you can further drill down the results by using the facets in the left menu such as peer-review and online availability.
E-books and printed books: This option retrieves e-books and printed books only.
Printed books: Limits your results to printed books. From the search results you can filter your search to include books available at either one of our three libraries.
Journals: Use this option if you are looking for a specific journal. The majority of our journals are available online. You can narrow your search results by using the facets in the left menu.
If you prefer to search for journal titles in an alphabetically sorted list, please use the Journals A-Z.
Don’t know the complete journal title? See our guide on how to search with abbreviated titles.
Databases: Enter words from the database title or subject area. Use English terms. Please note that databases often cover large areas and the search terms therefore need to be broad, for example Physics.
In the Database search you may browse by name, subject areas or type of content.
Chalmers publications: Use this filter to locate dissertations or articles written by researchers at Chalmers. Your search will be forwarded to research.chalmers.se.
Studentarbeten.chalmers.se: Choose this filter to search for Chalmers student theses.

The Library uses data visualization to illustrate publishing patterns at Chalmers.
To visualize scholarly publishing patterns we analyze keywords, geographic location of authors, and references in databases such as Web of Science or Scopus. Different types of network graphs and geographic maps are created to illustrate research focus, field structures, and overviews of research collaborations. The visualizations below exemplify some of the techniques we use.
The above image demonstrates which journals researchers at Chalmers cited 2011-2012. The idea behind this visualization is to offer an overview of which journals are used and how these journals are connected to each other.
Every circle in the network represents a journal and a link between two journals indicates that they have been cited in the same publication at least once. If a group of journals appear frequently in the same reference lists they are considered to be in the same field of study and creates a cluster. Each cluster has its own color and represents a potential subject within the network.
The size of the circle is determined by the centrality of the journal within the network. Two of the most central journals are Science and Nature, which are often cited by researchers at Chalmers.
Which are the most frequent keywords used in publications produced by a research group? The colors in the graph represent keywords which are closely related and the size of the circles the centrality of the keyword in the network. Examples of central words in this network are spectroscopy, kinetics, proteins and DNA. It is our attempt to show the composition and depth of the research focus within a research group.
A way to analyze research collaborations is to study co-authorship. Every red circle on the map represents a university, institute, or company researchers at Chalmers have co-authored at least one publication with during 2011. The size of the circle is determined by the number of co-authorships.
What types of services can the library provide?
We deliver different types of reports based on scientific output and scientometric data which are usually used in the monitoring and assessment of the research activity of departments and Areas of Advance at Chalmers. Time permitting, we can also assist with other matters. When it comes to scientometric analyses at individual level, it is mandatory to provide relevant researcher ID, such as ResearcherID (Web of Science), Scopus Author Identifier (Scopus), ORCID, Google Scholar Profile (Google). You are welcome to get in touch with us, if you are keen to get a better understanding of bibliometrics, or get advice on publishing strategies.
