Web of Science (1900+)

Includes cited author searching. Abstracts, keywords, and additional subject categories are included and searchable from 1991+.

Google Scholar

Google has a specialized interface for searching the journal literature called Google Scholar that provides access to peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, abstracts and articles, from academic publishers, professional societies, preprint repositories, universities and other scholarly organizations. Although it is not as standardized, thorough, or reliable as BIOSIS, Web of Science and other literature databases, Google Scholar is the simple interface that has its advantages of those who are less experienced with searching the literature.
