Part of the Web of Science collection of resources, Biosis Previews gives information about life sciences and biomedical publications from 1969-2008. It indexes information about journal articles and supplemental non-journal material such as reports, reviews and meetings.
Biosis Previews is useful for finding good quality information about biological topics. It is not a full text database, but you can use the SFX links to check for full text availability.
You will need an Athens account to access Biosis Previews from off campus.
