BIOSIS Citation Index (BCI) covers all major areas in biological science, with broad coverage in molecular and cell biology, pharmacology, endocrinology, genetics, neurosciences, infectious diseases, ecology and organism biology.
BCI provides access to over 22 million records from journals, books, reports, meetings, and U.S. patents dating back to 1926.
BCI shares a similar interface to Web of Science, but it also provides you with some additional search options.
Additional search options:
A taxonomic review is useful to gain an understanding of how and why an organism is classified the way it is. Biologists may do a taxonomic review of several species by comparing and contrasting physical characteristics. Illustrations are frequently used.
A taxanomic key is used by biologists to identify new organisms. It can be used to understand how new species are classified.
A protocol literature type focuses on methods and practices used for a particular area of research. This is the type of information included in a lab manual, and it can be used to study the methods used by a research team or methods that are recommended as best practice. You will find similar information using the manual literature type.
