@ = articles are available online through Bibsys' subscriptions on e-journal databases for employees and students. To access the articles it is necessary to use a computer in the UiO network. This is because the UiO subscription access is controlled by IP-address.

To download the articles from computers outside the UiO network it is necessary to connect to the UiO network by VPN client. Some ejournal databases do not facilitate a direct link to the PDF-file. In such cases the link leads to the issue-index or the journal from where the correct article can be located and downloaded. Available curriculum articles on the internet are an advantage in the sense that required reading will be available to the students sooner than compendiums and the students may choose to read the text on the screen. Students pay for print-outs if exceeding their print quota, but this is also cheaper than printed compendium per page
