NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS) is an abstracting service offering a search interface into the scientific and technical literature covering astronomy, planetary science, physics, and the arXiv e-prints. The abstracts database contains data from several sources, including NASA's Scientific and Technical Information group (STI), journal publishers, SIMBAD and NED. Access to full text may be available although some content is restricted by the publisher. See the ADS FAQs for further information.
