Your assignment requires you to locate peer reviewed articles written or co-written by Biology faculty members at the University of Montevallo. Who are they? Follow the links below to learn about their areas of expertise.
To search for scholarly, peer-reviewed articles, you will need to use an online database. These databases function as indexes for the contents of scholarly journals and many are subject-specific. Some databases for researching Biology are:
GreenFILE provides access to information on all aspects of human impact to the environment. Its collection of scholarly, government and general-interest titles includes content on global warming, green building, pollution, sustainable agriculture, renewable energy, recycling, and more.
PubMed comprises more than 27 million citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books. Citations may include links to full-text content from PubMed Central and publisher web sites.
The more general databases that appear below are also useful for finding scientific articles. You may have to be more deliberate in your searches in these databases, using precise scientific terms and specifying that you are seeking scholarly, peer-reviewed articles.
Offers peer-reviewed, full-text articles from the world's leading journals and reference sources in the areas of the physical sciences, technology, medicine, social sciences, the arts, theology, literature and other subjects.
