Electronic Journals Library

The Electronic Journals Library (EZB) gives you access to digital copies of scholarly journals. You can use this interface to identify free, licensed and non-licensed e-journals. 

The availability of full text access is indicated by different colours according to the license situation:

Free Access to full text articles

Access to full text articles is granted to users of the Institute for Advanced Studies on the basis of a subscription.

The IHS has no continuous subscription on the journal. Therefore, only some of the published volumes are accessible as full texts.
