Free Journal Indexes & Databases

Link to top Life Sciences page

First, a word about free databases: Most of these are not the best resources for the job, but there are exceptions, such as PubMed which is the database we recommend first to nearly everyone! These can be handy when you are off campus and don't want to be bothered with the proxy server or just need a few quick references.

For lists of biology-related recommended indexes and databases please see: Biology short list, Biology longer list, Medicine/Toxicology list.

  • Publisher-related sites, usually limited to output of certain publishers Fulltext will usually be available if there is a license on campus for the journal, so it never hurts to click on the fulltext/pdf links. Just know that they won't always work.
  • Subject specific databases, often from the governmental sites
  • Interdisciplinary sites Many of these databases are trying to SELL you a document which may be available to you free of charge from Washington University libraries, in the collection, online or through Interlibrary Loan, so think carefully before you provide your credit card number!
  • Miscellaneous other sources

Electronic Journal Databases & Publishers

 

 

Search capabilities vary but these sites usually have very nice SEARCH features for their own set of journal articles and occasionally they will include citations to other publisher's content also. The search features, citations and abstracts are usually freely available whether you are at a site with a subscription or not.
