Entomology: Selected Sources
Locating Journal Article Citations:
The Libraries of the USF System subscribe to a vast number of resources that provide journal citations and/or full-text articles. Most databases are subject-specific. To locate relevant resources, go to the main library web site (http://www.lib.usf.edu), and under the “Electronic Resources” category, select “databases/newspapers.” From there, choose the “by subject category” link and select “biology” from the pull-down menu. To get you started, the following databases may be useful for finding articles and information relating to the biological sciences:
The electronic equivalent of Biological Abstracts, the key resource for locating journal articles in the biological sciences. Indexing is included for more than 6,000 journal titles with coverage dating back to 1969.
Monitors 629 journal titles for articles relevant to the field of entomology. Updated monthly with coverage back to 1982.
Also called the Master Bibliography of Ant Literature, this database provides indexing to a large part of the scientific literature relating to the study of ants.
General Science Fulltext
Indexes approximately 280 journals with items of general interest to science students. Includes Discover, Impact of Science on Society, Issues in Science & Technology, New Scientist, New England Journal of Medicine, Science, Science Digest, Science News, etc.
This unique resource was created to provide searchable, full-text access to the older editions of a vast number of scholarly journals. Coverage goes back to volume one of the journal but does not include the most recent few years of the title. Biology and ecology are two areas of concentration within this resource.
A searchable collection of more than 1,000 Elsevier science journals. Also provides access to articles that are in press but not yet published in the print version.
This science-specific web engine allows searching of scientific literature. A unique feature of this resource is the ability to limit a search to scientist’s web sites.
Web of Science
Includes Science Citation Index, one of the most comprehensive databases for locating scientific literature. Links to full-text articles when available through USF subscriptions. Updated weekly.
Locating the full-text journal article:
Once you have located journal citations of interest, there are several ways to locate the full-text of a particular article:
