Environmental Science and Engineering: Databases
Library resources organised at one place for students, academics and researchers from "Environmental Science and Engineering (EnSE)"
Reaxys is a web-based search and retrieval system for chemical compounds, bibliographic data and chemical reactions. It is built to support chemists in their daily work with focused and relevant information in chemistry.
SciFinder is the most comprehensive database for coverage of chemistry & chemical engineering. It has the world's largest collection of organic and inorganic substance information. The web version of SciFinder provides integrated access to CAPlus, CAS Registry, CASREACT, CHEMLIST, and CHEMCATS which are produced by Chemical Abstracts Service, and to MEDLINE which is produced by the U.S. National Library of Medicine. Sources covered in SciFinder include 10,000 journals, patents from 61 patent authorities, book chapters, conference proceedings, dissertations, evaluated reference works, technical reports, as well as book reviews and biographical information.
For first time users, please note: CAS requires that you register before using their database. In order to register, please cut and paste the link below into your browser:
Provides full-image access to the publications of both the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the Institution of Electrical Engineers (IEE) includes all journals, magazines, standards and conference proceedings published since 1988.
The index is a subset of the INSPEC database, allowing users to search specifically for the information they need, then display and print the full image. Each image includes all charts, graphs, diagrams, photographs, and illustrative material.
Systematic comprehensive database of selected and critically assessed data in the physical sciences. Access to more than 250,000 substances and materials systems, 3,000 properties and more than 1.2 million literature references.
Core Environmental Science and Engineering Databases
Environmental Science and Engineering is an interdisciplinary field, so it can be difficult to find one database or research tool that covers every subject area. The most interdisciplinary databases below are Web of Science and Scopus. However, many researchers will prefer to search in a Chemistry-specific database like SciFinder-n (or Reaxys), or do more of a medical-related search in PubMed. BIOSIS is an excellent subject database for all of the biology disciplines. If you are needing a more specialized sub-field resources, see the list the left side of the page or ask your BESE librarian for assistance.
Scopus is the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature and web sources from Elsevier with tools to track, analyze and visualize research. Content coverage includes scientific, technical, medical and social sciences literature.
Comprehensive life science database which includes Biological Abstracts and Reports, Reviews & Meetings going back to 1926.
Coverage includes Traditional life science fields of Botany, Zoology, Microbiology, as well as Interdisciplinary and Emerging Fields like Nanotechnology, Biotechnology Biodiversity. Significant portion of content found in BIOSIS is not indexed in other life science database.
PubMed is the web-based retrieval system (search engine) developed by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) at the National Library of Medicine (NLM) for accessing the MEDLINE database. It covers the fields of biomedicine and health, life sciences, behavioral sciences, chemical sciences, and bioengineering.
Faculty Opinions: A Place for Starting Research
Faculty Opinions is a selective database of articles in the Biosciences. Faculty Opinions is not intended to be comprehensive, but is designed to feature the "important, groundbreaking and essential for scientists." The best use of Faculty Opinions may be to get a quick overview of the "most important" papers in a life sciences subject.
Faculty Opinions is an article recommendation service that helps you find studies that matter.
Powered by a faculty of around 8,000 leading researchers in biology and
medicine, these Faculty Members provide expert commentary and opinion on the most
important articles published in thousands of journals worldwide.
Faculty Opinions is an in-depth directory of the top articles in biology and medicine, as recommended by our Faculty of over 5,000 expert scientists and clinical researchers, assisted by 5,000 associates. The service covers over 40 disciplines and more than 3,500 journals. Articles are rated and expert commentaries explain their importance.
Derwent Innovations Index combines the Derwent World Patents Index with the patent citation information from Patent Citation Index allowing researchers to conduct precise search of over 14 million patents from 40 issuing agencies worldwide by topic, title, patent numbers, classification codes, inventor, assignee and compound in the areas of chemical, electrical, electronic, and mechanical engineering.
It provides access to more than 14,800,000 patents with links to cited and citing patents, cited articles, and full-text patent data sources. This resource gives users a comprehensive and international overview of inventions in three categories: chemical, electrical and electronic, and engineering.
