Find Articles Print Page

  What are these sources?

The databases on this page provide references to many scholarly journal articles and papers in the biological sciences.

Start off with keyword searches expressing your topic, review those items that look relevant, and then look at the details of those entries to help lead you to other articles. Pay attention to "subject keywords' or 'descriptors' to see how the database describes your topic and use them to find related articles. You may have to use AND or " " to connect two concepts and narrow your searches, and some of the general databases like ProQuest Direct and Academic Search Premier will allow you to limit your results to scholarly journals only.
