Finding papers about consciousness and robotics

The following list is a compilation of bibliographic search engines and scientific paper indexes, where you can look for publications related to your areas of interest.

Note that given my particular area of interest (Machine Consciousness) I have focused on neurosciences, robotics, and computer science (specifically Artificial Intelligence). However, these resources are useful for any researcher or student looking for scientific publication in other related areas.

You should also note that many of the websites listed below offer subscription services, i.e. you have to be subscripted in order to access the full paper text or other information.

In most of the cases the subscription is checked by looking at your IP address, so make sure you are connected (directly or through VPN) from your institution network. Doing so, you will be entitled to access the content.
