    Are you part of a University or any other educational institution?

    If so then visit the library and you should find that they probably subscribe to many of the reliable Scientific Journals to date, if you're a full time member you should be able to access them.

    Seems obvious, sorry if you've already tried that.

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/

    ^ Sometimes I use that for simple searches, its not a substitute though and you should definitely still find out from the library if you haven't done so already.

    Thx friend!!! But ya i've tried those already lol, my university doesnt have subscriptions to anything-i think they are too cheap ;)
    Pubmed is excellent but sometimes all they give u is an abstract; i was just wondering if anyone knew of a forum or such that offers such services!

    Salam alaikum.

    ScienceDirect, PubMed, and others like that all require you to go through the university proxy.

    However, I do know of one that has free registration and has quite a few research papers on it. It's mainly composed of review articles and editorials though. I use it a lot myself: www.medscape.com. Also, check at your university library, they can help out a lot.
