Physics research paper database

  1. Apr 18, 2012 #1
    In medicine and biology they have Medline which is a complete database of research papers---kind of a complete search engine of research papers in medicine and biology---which has free access to public. Is there anything comparable to this in physics---??????

    SPIRES and arXiv, but they are a bit biased towards particle physics and related fields.
    Maybe you can find more here.

    The nice feature of arXiv is the open access to the full articles.

    Web of Science is probably the biggest of the commercial databases.
    However, Google Scholar is also quite good and usually sufficient (and free)
