Publishing & Grant Writing in STEM: Searching the Literature
This guide provides resources for locating funding opportunities, conducting literature searches, and writing articles and grants in STEM.
Searching the existing literature is an important step in the grant writing process and helps you position your proposed study within the existing body of research. Below are just some of the databases you can use to search the literature.
This engineering literature database includes peer reviewed and indexed publications from 77 countries across 190 engineering disciplines. This link will allow you to search the Inspec database as well.
Provides indexing and full-text access to IEEE and IEE transactions, journals, magazines and conference proceedings published since 1988 and all current IEEE standards. Access to the full text is restricted to current UF students/staff/faculty.
Provides access to the world's scientific literature in electrical engineering, physics, control engineering, computers, and manufacturing and production engineering.Records for articles back to the 1890s.
Resources for Alternatives to the Use of Live Vertebrates in Biomedical Research and Testing. ALTBIB citations have been selected from articles, books, book chapters, and technical reports published from 1980 to 2000. These citations examine methods, tests, assays, and procedures that may be useful in establishing alternatives to the use of intact vertebrates.
