Finding Computer Science Papers
Especially in Cryptography
Finding papers can be a chore. If your local science library had every
computer science and cryptography journal you might be able to find a good
percentage of the papers written. However, you would still be missing out on
all of the papers written for conferences. Very few libraries stock every
convention publication. Even then, you would need to wait for your library
to acquire and process the compilation of papers. Well in many cases you
don't have to do that. You can retrieve many of these papers from the
web. If you can find the author's web site or the conference web
site, you can often download the paper and save a trip to the library for
a hard copy.
Justin's Links for finding research papers.
- Starting from a topic but no paper title or author.
- Look at general paper search sites for matches.
- ResearchIndex -
search by title or author, gives papers and references.
- Science Direct
- contains list of journal online, search also. Papers and
references to listed journals.
DBLP Bibliography - No papers but very comprehensive search
for references possible.
Collection of Computer Science Bibliographies
Library Homepage - Similar to Bibliography. Provides index
of references to Papers, Authors, Publications, and Conferences.
Again, doesn't store papers.
- FSU Library
- Subscribes to databases where you can get references. Also
has a few papers online. Must be an FSU student. Recommend
FirstSearch, Web of Science, & INSPEC. Check out the trial
databases as well.
- General search engines are also useful. Currently I favor Google .
- Found the author of a paper? Then look for Author Home Pages.
- HPSearch -
search for any computer science author's web site.
- Compilations of Author Link's
- Can't find author site? Look at sites with papers.
- Paper Compilation Sites
- Journal & Conference web Pages
- Still Looking? Try my bookmarks page for even more links.
