How to use the Electronic Journals Library (EZB)

General information

The Electronic Journals Library (EZB) is a project run by the University Library in Regensburg with the participation of numerous German libraries, including the Frankfurt (Oder) University Library.

The EZB only contains academic journals which have already published their articles in full on the Internet.  Popular periodicals or those which only make a table of contents or abstracts available online are not included. For further information see:



The titles available in the Electronic Journals Library can be accessed

  • via the list of subject areas
  • by searching using keywords.

The following applies to the journals:     
grün, frei verfügbar ©Bildschirmkopie/Anja Wosnik The full text of the journal is freely available.
gelb, campusweit verfügbar ©Bildschirmkopie/Anja Wosnik The journal is licensed for the Frankfurt (Oder) University Library and the full text can only be accessed by members of the Frankfurt (Oder) University Library.
rot, nicht verfügbar ©Bildschirmkopie/Anja WosnikThe University Library does not have a subscription for the journal and the full text is therefore not accessible. However, tables of contents and, in many cases, abstracts are available free of charge.

Access / Technical requirements

Most publishing companies control access to the full texts of journals for which a charge is levied by checking the IP address of the computer from which the request is being made. You are able to read the full texts of the journals marked with a yellow dot on all computers connected to the university’s campus network. For access to the journal, simply click on its title.

Most journals require the Adobe Acrobat Reader (download) to have been installed to enable the full texts to be read and printed.


Please make sure to abide by the publishing companies’ terms of use.
