Databases and Ebook Collections

 

Scopus is a navigation tool covering the world's largest collection of abstracts, references and indexes of scientific, technical and medical (STM) literature. Seamless links to full-text articles and other library resources make Scopus quick, easy and comprehensive.


Web of Science (citation indexes), published by the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI), is a multidisciplinary database, with searchable author abstracts, covering the journal literature of the sciences, social sciences and arts. It indexes major journals in these disciplines. 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 search interface at this web site provides access to Science Citation Index,Social Sciences Citation Index and Arts & Humanities Citation Index


bioRxiv is an online archive of unpublished preprints for the life sciences. By publishing here, authors can make their findings immediately available to the scientific community.


PubMed contains 16 million citations from MEDLINE and other life science journals for biomedical articles.Includes links to full text articles and related resources.


Access to the set of Annual Reviews, including the Annual Review of Biochemistry. These contain time-saving review articles summarising key research and emerging issues. Extensive bibliographies provide authoritative paths to relevant primary literature. The Annual Review of Biochemistry sets the standard for review articles in biological chemistry and molecular biology and serves as an indispensable resource for practicing biochemists and their students.


Methods in Enzymology

A book series of nearly 400 volumes, providing a laboratory standard for methods and protocols in the field of Biochemistry.


Encyclopedia of Biological Chemistry

This resource pulls together over 500 articles that help define and explore contemporary biochemistry


 

 

 

 

The Biomedical and Life Sciences eBook Collection brings together up-to-date resources from trusted authors working around the world in all aspects of life: from patterns of infectious transmission to processes responsible for the loss of biodiversity. The books in this collection cover a wide range of topics, including applied microbiology & biotechnology, infectious diseases, veterinary science, immunology, pharmacology, toxicology, physiology, virology and more.


Supporting Lab Work

We know it can be hard to gain access to the laboratories at the moment, and so we thought we'd highlight a few of our online resources that focus on protocols and experimental work. These resources cover a broad range of topics, so have a good browse through and be inspired!

 

 

 

 

JoVE Unlimited: Journal of Visual Experiments has educational videos demonstrating science concepts and laboratory methods suitable for undergraduate and graduate courses. JoVE videos also bring to life the intricate details of cutting-edge experiments enabling efficient learning and replication of new research methods and technologies.


Wiley Current Protocols includes over 24,000 step-by-step techniques, procedures, and practical overviews that provide researchers with reliable, efficient methods to ensure reproducible results and pave the way for critical scientific discovery. There is a broad subject coverage for researchers, and a section on Essential Laboratory Techniques will be of particular use to undergraduate students.


Springer Nature Experiments is a research solution allowing researchers to quickly find and evaluate protocols and methods in the life sciences.


Cold Spring Harbour Protocols is an interactive source of new and classic research techniques. Fully searchable by keyword and subject. Coverage includes cell and molecular biology, genetics, bioinformatics, protein science, and imaging. Regularly updated.

Open Access resources

Although many journals are only available to those with a subscription, an increasing number are now making some or all of their content freely accessible, or 'Open Access'. This means that our subscription database are not the only place you need to look when searching for resources. Find out more about how to search for open access content using this handy guide.

If you're interested in finding out more about the principles of Open Access, or want to publish your own content in Open Access sources, then check out this guide from the Office of Scholarly Communication.

Lean Library logoThe Lean Library Button

Compatible with most browsers, Lean Library is a browser extension that will automatically detect when you have access to something. This access might be provided through the University of Cambridge's subscriptions, or it might be an Open Access version. Either way, this will reduce the need for hours spent trying to log in to different websites or hitting paywalls and will give you quick access to what you need.
