VERTEBRATE PALEONTOLOGY
JOURNAL LINKS

 

   Below are quick links to the home pages (in alphabetical order) for over 300 journals that publish papers of interest to vertebrate paleontologists of all specialties. Note that some home pages contain the tables of contents directly, but others provide links to the relevant sites. Some journals have additional sites via their publishers from which full-text articles can frequently be accessed; these links are also provided. A list of  journals that publish papers  but either do not have web sites or have sites but do provide (free) web access to tables of contents or articles may be accessed here .  (I have removed all diacritical marks from any titles so that anyone searching for a title via a web search engine will be more easily directed to this page.  This is not intended as a disrespect for any language, but as a means to direct traffic to the web sites for those publications.

     Please note that I have not included journals that only very rarely publish vertebrate paleontology papers (such as American Naturalist and many medical journals).

    Some journals shift web sites periodically, becoming temporarily unavailable.  I have marked these journals below with a large, red X.  If they are offline for an extended period, I'll move them to the list of sites with no web pages.  If you have any information about the fate of these journals and their web sites, please e-mail me!

     For more extensive information about all these (and any other) journals, please try PubList.  Also, BIOSIS has recently initiated the journal portal BiologyBrowser.

Links are now included to an excellent currency converter for those purchasing outside their home country.

SPECIAL THANKS to Jon Baskin, Jay Nair, Sven Sachs, Tommy Tyrberg, and Rick Wagler for their great suggestions for additions to and updates of this page!

NON-TECHNICAL PUBLICATIONS



    Many  organizations that are relevant to vertebrate paleontologists produce newsletters or other publications aimed at a more general audience.  These informal publications do not usually contain peer-reviewed, scientific articles, but do contain information useful to members of the vertebrate paleontological community and avid amateurs, including news about current research.  Click on the links below to view some of these publications.

DISSERTATIONS


Many North American doctoral dissertations are available for sale via ProQuest.

Many theses and dissertations from students in the university system in Ohio can be downloaded from OhioLINK ETD Service.

Theses Canada is a source for locating theses and dissertations from Canadian universities, but all purchasing is done via ProQuest, as above.

The Center for Research Libraries Foreign Doctoral Dissertations Database holds over 750,000 dissertations from the U.K., France, Sweden, Germany, Netherlands, South Africa, and more, though at present it appears that only 12,000 have been cataloged. If you don't find what you want in their database, e-mail them to inquire about as-yet uncataloged holding.

The British Thesis Service makes available copies of theses and dissertations from Great Britain and Ireland. You can search for specific documents here.

You can search French disseretations via ABES-SUDOC (make sure you un-check all options under "Type of Publication" except dissertations).

The titles and authors of a few German paleontological dissertations may be viewed via the Universitats- und Landesbibliothek Dusseldorf  by typing in some appropriate author, title- or keywords (Titelstichwort/Schlagwort).  Copies are available by e-mailing the librarian; costs appear to be around $0.20 per page (I don't know if this includes shipping).

The Universistats- und Landesbibliothek Bonn also has some dissertations available on-line.

The China Dissertation Database (CDDB) home page is here, but requires a log-in to access. Don't ask me how to obtain a log-in code -- other than the home page, it's all in Chinese.

If you know a source for other dissertations outside North America, please e-mail me so I can place the information here.

OUT-OF-PRINT PUBLICATIONS


    Here are links to a few places on the web who specialize (or have specialized sections) for antiquarian geological and paleontological  material.  Be warned:  most of the older stuff is very expensive!

Also try the following book search engines, which search large, global networks of used booksellers simultaneously -- I've had great results with all of them.  But get your checkbooks ready -- most of the older stuff isn't cheap!  Allbooks.com searches several new and used book search systems simultaneously; it can even find monographs if they're available!
