New databases @thelibrary

There is so much good news to share with you today. Annual Reviews, Chronicle of Higher Education, GeoScience World, and 25 years of Citation Indexing are now available to the campus community.

We have been able to purchase these new subscriptions by a combination of elimination of duplicate formats and cancellation of print in favor of electronic delivery:

  • Annual Reviews - full text of all 32 reviews available online
    Since 1932, Annual Reviews volumes are published each year for 32 focused disciplines within the Biomedical, Physical, and Social Sciences. Annual Reviews is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide the worldwide scientific community with a useful and intelligent synthesis of the primary research literature for a broad spectrum of scientific disciplines.
  • Chronicle of Higher Education - available online & in print
    The Chronicle of Higher Education is the No. 1 source of news, information, and jobs for college and university faculty members and administrators. In print, The Chronicle is published in three sections: the news section; The Chronicle Review, a magazine of arts and ideas; and Careers, with career advice and hundreds of job listings.
  • GeoScience World - available online
    A comprehensive Internet resource for research and communications in the geosciences, built on a core database aggregation of peer-reviewed journals indexed, linked, and inter-operable with GeoRef. GeoScienceWorld (GSW) is a nonprofit corporation formed by a group of leading geoscientific organizations for the purpose of making geoscience research and related information easily and economically available via the Internet. GSW is an unprecedented collaboration of six leading earth science societies and one institute.
  • Arts & Humanities Citation Index, Science Citation Index Expanded, and Social Science Citation Index (Web of Science)
    All three citation indexes now include material from 1981 to date, 25 years of coverage.
    A citation index contains the references cited by the authors of the articles covered by the index. In addition to cited reference searching, you can search these databases by topic, author, source title, and address.

    Arts & Humanities Citation Index is a multidisciplinary index covering the journal literature of the arts and humanities. It fully covers 1,144 of the world's leading arts and humanities journals, and it indexes individually selected, relevant items from over 6,800 major science and social science journals.

    Science Citation Index Expanded is a multidisciplinary index to the journal literature of the sciences. It fully indexes 5,900 major journals across 150 scientific disciplines-that's 2,100 more journals than the print and CD-ROM versions of the SCI. The Science Citation Index Expanded includes all cited references captured from indexed articles

    Social Sciences Citation Index is a multidisciplinary index to the journal literature of the social sciences. It fully indexes more than 1,725 journals across 50 social sciences disciplines, and it indexes individually selected, relevant items from over 3,300 of the world's leading scientific and technical journals.
These databases are available on our Articles Indexes and Databases page.
