    The Science Citation Index, a part of the Web of Science, is a multidisciplinary database of bibliographic information indexed so that you can search for specific articles by subject, author, journal, and/or author address. Because the information stored about each article includes the article's cited reference list (often called its bibliography), you can also search the databases for articles that cite a known author or work.

    The Science Citation Index (SCI) indexes 5,700 major journals across 164 scientific disciplines, covering approximately 2,100 more journals than its print and CD-ROM counterparts, with all cited references captured.

  • UpToDate
    » More info
    UpToDate is a collaborative effort of thousands of physician educators. For each clinical issue, an expert in the field reviews the topic, synthesizes information, summarizes key findings, and provides detailed, practical recommendations for patient care.

    All of the material in UpToDate is fully referenced and most topic reviews have links to related topics. The medical literature is monitored and relevant topic reviews are updated with new medical findings. UpToDate also includes hundreds of patient information handouts; these topics go through peer review and constant updating as with professional-level topics. It also includes drug information from Lexi-Comp.

    Our licensing agreement with UpToDate limits its use to on campus only. It cannot be made available via our Remote Access Portal for off campus use.
