Research Library (ProQuest)
Provides abstracts and indexing for over 2,600, as well as full text for over 1,700 scholarly journals and general magazines. Research Library is an expansion of, and replacement for, the database titled Periodical Abstracts Research II.

Web of Science (Web of Knowledge/Thomson Reuters)
Web of Science  will help you discover articles in the most prestigious scientific journals. While there's no full text directly available here, there are links to help you find full text and/or request articles through Inter-library Loan. Note that you can limit your search to specific article types (including review articles), date ranges, languages, etc. using the menu on the left once you have submitted your initial search


Academic Search Complete (EBSCO)
This multi-disciplinary full-text database is quite strong in biology topics and includes a lot of full-text articles. Not everything here is full text, but there is a lot. Beware limiting your search to a 'review' because you may wind up with book reviews.

Environment Complete (EBSCO)
Offers deep coverage in applicable areas of agriculture, ecosystem ecology, energy, renewable energy sources, natural resources, marine & freshwater science, geography, pollution & waste management, environmental technology, environmental law, public policy, social impacts, urban planning, and more. Environment Complete indexes more than 1,600 journals (nearly 600 with full text) as well as more than 100 monographs.


ScienceDirect (Elsevier)
Citations and some full text to high quality science journals published by Elsevier.
Access Alert! The key to knowing if you have access to a particular article is to note the small 'piece of paper' indicator next to each citation. If it's green, you're in business; if it's white you'll need to request it by Interlibrary Loan.
