Biology Databases thru Web of Knowledge
Search several top biological sciences databases simultaneously:
Biological Abstracts, CABI, Zoological Record, Food Science and
Technology Abstracts, and Web of Science. Each database may be
searched individually also.
Encyclopedia of Life Sciences
Concentrates primarily on the molecular and cellular life sciences, including biochemical topics, methods and techniques. Applied areas of science are also included on a selective basis, as are biographies and general interest articles on ethics and the history of science.
Journal Citation Reports
Uses citation data from over 8,400 journals (over 3,000 publishers worldwide) to evaluate and compare scholarly journals.
Medline / PubMed
Essential database for biomedicine. Includes citations from MEDLINE and for biomedical articles in life science journals. A product of the National Center for Biotechnology Information.
PubMed Help || Tutorial || PubMed for Handhelds
The primary database for searching the chemical literature. Registration is required. You will need use your utk.edu e-
mail address to create your SciFinder username and password.
Visit SciFinder Help to learn more.
Web of Science
Citation index for sciences, social sciences, and humanities. Includes Conference Proceedings Citation Index and Book Citation Index. Journals indexed in Web of Science.
Agricola (National Agricultural Library- NAL)
Index to materials in agriculture and related fields; produced
by the National Agricultural Library (NAL).
Click 'All Databases' tab to search top biological sciences databases simultaneously: Bio Abs, Web of Science, Zoological Record, and CABI.
