Online journals

The Electronic Journals Library (EZB)

The Electronic Journals Library (EZB) is a service for effective using of the scientific full-text journals.

Electronic Journals Library (EZB)

We have added all UFZ online journals to this central collection. From here you have the largest offer, the best overview, the fastest linking to the journals, also to these that are not available as a print journal in the UFZ library.

On the first page you can choose your desired institution (pull down list) and set a hook in the traffic light system which journals you want to see (all, freely available fulltext articles = green, fulltext access is restricted to the users of the chosen institution = yellow or yellow/red for journals where only a selected period of time is accessible for users of the chosen institution). You can save this page in your bookmarks and your settings remain.

There is a possibility to display subject lists or alphabetical lists with the same restrictions. The search for a special journal is also possible.


Not all journals that are available in print in the library are researchable online! The print-offer is higher. In the case of incongruity between traffic light and state of access (e.g. red traffic light but you get access to the journal), please inform the library (, Tel. 2393) for correction.

National licences

The DFG (German Research Foundation) has offered financial resources to buy different databases and journal packages from several publishers. The UFZ has registered for these national licences. All titles are marked with a yellow traffic light and recognizable as national licence.
