Choosing a Database
Databases are different than Search Engines.
Databases are usually subject-specific and include content that meets certain criteria. Databases offer many ways to sort search results, such as by Peer Review. In STEM, databases focus on journal articles, conference proceedings, and book chapters.
Some of our most popular science and medicine databases are listed here. However, to find the very best databases for your research topic you should check out the website for your subject.
