Scitopia – searching physical science & engineering literature and patents

A free federated search portal, Scitopia allows you to search the publications of more than 20 science and engineering societies through one site. You can also search the US Patent and Trademark Office, European Patent Office,  Japan Patent Office, and the Department of Energy Information Bridge site in the same search.

Scitopia participants include Acoustical Society of America, the American Geophysical Union, the American Institute of Physics, the American Physical Society, the American Society of Civil Engineers, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, the Audio Engineering Society, AVS, ECS, IEEE, the Institute of Physics, the IUCR Crystallography Journals Online, the Optical Society of America, the Professional Engineering Publishing, the Royal Society, the Society for Industrial & Applied Mathematics, the Society of Automotive Engineers, SPIE, and the Society for Information Display.

The UH Manoa Library subscribes to many of the Scitopia journals, but you will not be able to link directly to journal full text from Scitopia unless you are in the Library. Our students, faculty, and staff who access Scitopia from outside the Library should search the Library’s electronic resources at to access the journals to which the Library subscribes. The US government documents and many of the patent documents are freely available directly through Scitopia.
