About CiNii Articles
CiNii Articles is a database service which can search of information on academic articles published in academic society journals, university research bulletins or articles included in the National Diet Library's Japanese Periodicals Index Database and databases.
It also contains a large number of articles that are available free of charge, and the search function can be used without registering. In viewing paid content, special rates and other privileges are offered to institutional fixed-price users (registration by institution) or users with an ID (individual registration).
Author-search service has been available experimentally since April 2010, and we are working toward a better service.
