CiNii – NII Scholarly and Academic Information Navigator

CiNii – NII Scholarly and Academic Information Navigator.

Developed by the National Institute of Informatics, CiNii is a tool to find articles published in Japanese academic society journals and university research bulletins. It also incorporates the National Diet Library’s Zasshi Kiji Sakuin (Japanese Periodicals Index) database.

NII states that CiNii has three main features:

  • “Large volume of article information – CiNii incorporates 12 million articles. Articles from different databases that have duplicate information are displayed as a single article.
  • Access to full text documents – Access to full text documents is possible with 3.2 million of the 12 million articles currently available on CiNii. CiNii enables you to search desired articles and obtain the full text of such articles. Through joint collaborations, we also provide links to navigate to full text documents, etc. on other services.
  • Displays citation information – Based on this citation information (References / Cited by), users can track down related articles.”

Please note that some full text articles are free, while other require payment.
