Featured Databases. This Week’s Focus: Science Majors.

On Tuesday, the “Featured Databases” board in the Information Commons will feature two new databases. This week’s databases will be geared toward science majors (i.e. chemistry, biology, and physics but not the social sciences); they are Scirus and ScienceDirect.

Scirus is a free search engine specifically for science topics. With Scirus, you have access to general and specialized full-text journals, e-print collections, reports, and abstracts from more than 200 million science-related websites. For more information about Scirus, click here.

ScienceDirect allows you to access more than 1,800 full-text articles from peer-reviewed journals. You can often find articles that are still in press. The journals and reference works you have access to are exclusive to ScienceDirect. For more information about this database, click here.

Take some time to check out these and our other science-related databases, or click here for more databases.
