Find articles


Articles can be found in a periodical right by the particular citation, or by indexes, which are published continuously in case of some periodicals - especially the professional ones - or, e.g. in yearly accumulations, or based on data from bibliography. Bibliographies can be focused generally or on a certain branch or region. At present, they are accessible mainly in the electronic form. Some older bibliographies are transferred step by step into the electronic form, nevertheless many of them, especially the professional ones are still accessible only in the printed form or in a card catalogue in the institution that works on the particular bibliography.
