Finding Articles I: Primary Databases

Primary article databases for Biology

  • Academic Search Complete from Ebsco is a general database covering all fields.  ASC is a good place to start for most projects and is especially good for interdisciplinary topics, like bioethics or genetically modified organisms. 
  • Google Scholar (TAMU proxy link).
  • Web of Science covers more journals in the sciences, including biology, mostly in English, and is a good database for most biological research.
  • Biosis Citation Index is the most comprehensive database covering all fields of biology in all languages.

Specialized and related databases.
