Conference papers: Finding conference papers

How to find and use conference papers.

SUPrimo Library search

  • You can search for conference proceedings on SUPrimo (Library Collections tab) using any combination of keywords from the conference name (if there is one), editor, title.
  • Some conferences may be published in a journal - check under the journal title if this is the case.
  • You can search for individual papers within a conference using the Articles and papers tab on SUPrimo. Enter the paper title or keywords and then use the  Refine My Results option to limit your results to Conference Proceedings.

Web sources

  • Look on the conference website or the organisation website  to see if their conference proceedings have been published.
  • The author(s) may publish their papers on their own website or on an institutional website or repository.


Most databases will contain conference papers. From your search results choose Document Type or Source Type and limit to Conference Paper or Conference Proceeding depending on the database. Some databases just contain conference papers or have a high proportion of conference papers:
