The American Chemical Society is a self-governed individual membership organization that consists of more than 158,000 members at all degree levels and in all fields of chemistry. The organization provides a broad range of opportunities for peer interaction and career development, regardless of professional or scientific interests.
BIOSIS is the premiere database for literature in biological and life sciences. Subject coverage is for all areas of biology. BIOSIS covers medical topics, but tends to focus more on basic research and its coverage of clinical medicine is not as deep as PubMed or MEDLINE. For animal biology, you might also want to try Zoological Record.
Years covered: 1993 - present
