Check out our Resource of the Month

The RSL has a huge collection of physical and electronic materials. We have so much that we wanted to shine a spotlight on some of our items whether recently added or an existing collection item. The resources are recommended by our knowledgeable subject librarians who are excited to show off parts of the collection for their subject.

Ollie has selected BIOSIS by Web of Science.

Brief Description

BIOSIS is a database of biological and biomedical research literature published since 1969. It not only covers academic journals, but also book chapters, meeting abstracts, technical reports, patents and other material. BIOSIS can be particularly useful to biologists as the records are enhanced with added taxonomic, genetic and biochemical information. This makes it possible to easily search for all records concerned with a specific gene or organism. BIOSIS records also benefit from the citation data available within Web of Science. This allows you to see related research available across the Web of Science platform that has cited documents you are interested in.
