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 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.
HSDB is a toxicology data file focusing on the toxicology of potentially hazardous chemicals. It is enhanced with information on human exposure, industrial hygiene, emergency handling procedures, environmental fate, regulatory requirements, and related areas.
MEDLINE is a bibliographic database of life sciences and biomedical information, produced by the National Library of Medicine (NLM, United States). It contains millions of references to journal articles in life sciences with a concentration on biomedicine. It indexes literature published from 1966 to the present.
The United States Department of Commerce National Technical Information Service (NTIS) serves as the largest central resource for government-funded scientific, technical, engineering, and business related information available today. Included are citations for more than 3 million publications in more than 350 subject areas.
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.
PubChem is an open chemistry database at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). (“Open” means that you can put your scientific data in PubChem and others may use it). PubChem is a key chemical information resource for scientists, students, and the general public. Records are contributed by government agencies, chemical vendors, journal publishers, and more.
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.
SciFinder is the interface to the database of chemistry literature, Chemical Abstracts. It provides full-text access to the world's most comprehensive and authoritative source of substances and reactions in chemistry and related sciences.
You must be a Calvin student in order to use this database, and you will need to request registration from this page before using the site for the first time.
Written to introduce chemistry students to the ways chemists communicate...The book covers the most important forms of communication - textbooks, lectures, lab reports, articles, literature reviews, and oral presentations.
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.
