The ACS Publications database strives to be the most authoritative and comprehensive provider of chemistry-related information by providing full-text access to peer-reviewed, scholarly journals published by the ACS.
BIOSIS Citation Index combines the life science coverage found in BIOSIS Previews (Biological Abstracts, Reports, Reviews, and Meetings) with the power of cited reference searching. Subject coverage is the same as that of BIOSIS Previews and includes traditional areas of biology like botany, zoology, and microbiology. Coverage is 1926 to the present.
Chemistry Central provides access to peer-reviewed open access research in chemistry, from BioMed Central - the leading biomedical open access publisher. This site features chemistry-related articles published in Chemistry Central Journal and independent journals utilizing BioMed Central's open access publishing services.
"...the largest medical and bioscience information resource and reference site on the Internet, which provides access to medical and bioscience journals, associations, databases and other medical resources, with more than 35,000 active links."
NextBio alleviates the challenges that are facing the life sciences industry and has developed a suite of products which allow researchers to extract knowledge from disparate biological, clinical, and chemical data, regardless of data type or origin. NextBio's integrated database contains publicly available data from a variety of sources, including GEO, caBIG, and Array Express, among others.
Science.gov is a search engine for government science information and research results. Currently in its fourth generation, Science.gov provides search of more than 50 million pages of science information with just one query, and is a gateway to over 1,800 scientific Web sites.
Web of Science is the world's largest, high-quality interdisciplinary database back to 1965. All subject areas are covered, but the sciences are covered very well. WoS is easy to use, but it has many advanced features that make it an excellent tool for advanced researchers. See the Web of Science page for searching instructions.
You can search all these databases, or select only one.
Web of Science (Arts & Humanities Index, Science Citation Index, Social Sciences Index)
BIOSIS (the leading biological sciences database)
Current Contents (current awareness database covering more than 7,000 journals)
In this two volume set, "The editors intend to provide an understanding of disease and human health, and succeed by combining microbiology and immunology to produce a coherent and understandable encyclopedia." The encyclopedia also contains many biographies of lesser-known scientists.
WorldCat (Public) is a global network of library content. This WorldCat site provides some services and functionality not offered on the other WorldCat site, but the content is identical. WorldCat is ideal for locating research sources not owned by Calvin so that the sources can be acquired through InterLibrary Loan.
The Zoological Record is the world's oldest continuing database of animal biology, going back to 1864. It acts as an unofficial register of animal names. The broad scope of coverage ranges form biodiversity and the environment to taxonomy and veterinary sciences.
