Search here for articles about almost any life sciences topic. New citations are added frequently, and you can search for articles in over 4,000 journals, and as far back as 1969. A good place to start your Biology research.
Focuses on medical information, but is also a great source of citations to articles about cellular and molecular biology, biochemistry, nursing & veterinary sciences, and public health. MEDLINE can also be searched via PubMed (a free service of the U.S. National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health), but using the EBSCO interface available from this page will give you more links to full-text journals in your results.
- Web of Science

- Academic Search Complete
A large general database containing citations to both popular and scholarly articles about an enormous range of topics (not just science!). Articles found from this database will likely be less specialized than those found in science-specific databases.
A database of citations to articles about agriculture and related topics, including animal and veterinary sciences, entomology, plant sciences, forestry, aquaculture and fisheries, food and nutrition, and earth and environmental sciences.
- CINAHL Plus with Full Text
CINAHL provides citations to Nursing and Allied Health articles. Full text is available for over 750 journals and over 240 books and monographs. Can also be a good source of medical and public health information.
