To start, you may use the Mines Library Catalog to search for research articles for a broad understanding of your research topic. Use the faceted filters on the right side of the search result to narrow it down to Resource Types / Articles.
Please note: not all research articles which the library subscribes to are searchable through the catalog. Only use the catalog for a broad search to get started and use specialized databases such as the Web of Science, Google Scholar, or Scitation (AIP journals and more) to run more specific and comprehensive searches on your topic.
If you know the title of the journal you want to browse, you could search for the journal title in the catalog. For example, if you do a search on Physical Review Letters, the first item to come up will be the catalog record for the journal. You can then view the table of contents for the journal.
