Article in Oria

Too many?

Results can be refined by using the options on the right side of the search result. Limit by subject, dates, language, source, etc.

Too few?

To expand the search to documents outside USN's catalogues, select Include material your institution doesn't have access to in the search results' top right hand side. If you still can't find what you are looking for, try a search in the databases. If you do not get the desired search results, Google Scholar may be an option. Articles you cannot find or get access to, can be ordered for you.

Articles in journals and newspapers

Articles that the library holds as printed sources only, are generally not searchable by title or subject in Oria. To find the complete reference, you must therefore search in for example Web of Science or Google Scholar. Full text articles from most Norwegian printed newspapers can often be found in the database ATEKST.

If you can not find the journal article

  • Try to find the journal in which the article was published. Be careful to read your reference correctly! Example: 2010, vol 8(1), pp.53 means the article was published in the year 2010, in volume 8, number 1, and is on page 53.
  • Expand the Oria search by selecting Include material your institution doesn't have access to in the search results' top right hand side. Use the Request button if you need a paper copy of a journal article.
