The following are useful databases which can help you identify articles relevant to various biology-related topics. Where Rutgers has online access to relevant citations, you will be able to click and link directly to the online article.
BioOne is the product of collaboration among scientific societies, libraries, academe and the private sector. It brings to the Web an aggregation of the full-texts of high-impact bioscience research journals. Most of these titles are published by small scientific societies and non-commercial publishers. BioOne provides integrated access to interrelated journals focused on the biological, ecological and environmental sciences.
BIOSIS Previews indexes international journals, published meetings, symposia, workshops, patents, book and software reviews. It is multidisciplinary covering, e.g.,Zoology, Behavior and Ecology, Biotechnology, Medicine, Microbiology, Molecular Biology, Physiology, and Plant Sciences.
CAB Abstracts is a comprehensive database in the applied life sciences, covering the significant research and development literature in agriculture; animal and veterinary sciences; environmental sciences; human health, food, and nutrition; leisure and tourism; microbiology and parasitology; and plant sciences.
Produced by the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM), the MEDLINE database is widely recognized as the premier source for bibliographic and abstract coverage of biomedical literature. MEDLINE provides information from the fields of medicine, nursing, dentistry, as well as coverage in the areas of allied health, biological and physical sciences, humanities and information science as they relate to medicine and health care, communication disorders, population biology, and reproductive biology.
PubMed is a database of more than 30 million citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books. PubMed’s primary focus is biomedicine and health sciences, but it also includes related fields such as life sciences, behavioral sciences, chemical sciences, and bioengineering.
ScienceDirect, the full-text sciences periodicals database from Elsevier, contains over 25% of the world's science, technology and medicine full text and bibliographic information. More than 2,500 journals are available on ScienceDirect and Rutgers University Libraries subscribe to over 1,500 of these titles.
Scopus is a citation and abstract database of peer-reviewed literature that can be used by researchers to determine the impact of specific authors, articles/documents, and journals. It contains over 50 million records in the areas of science, technology, medicine, social sciences, arts, and humanities, with coverage strongest in the physical sciences (7,200+ titles) and health sciences (6,800+ titles), followed by the life sciences (4,300+ titles), and finally the social sciences & humanities (5,300+ titles). Patents in Scopus come from five patent offices: US Patent & Trademark Office, European Patent Office, Japan Patent Office, World Intellectual Property Organization and the UK Intellectual Property Office.
Web of Science is an enhanced web version of Thomson/ISI's citation indexes, e.g., Science Citation Index, Social Sciences Citation Index, Arts & Humanities Citation Index. Web of Science can be used to demonstrate the impact of particular articles and authors through the "Cited Reference Search" and allows subject searching through both "quick" and "advanced" searches. Our Web of Science subscription covers 1984 to the present.
