ProQuest Biological Science Collection - Overview and Tips

ProQuest's Biological Science Collection includes immediate access to the full-text of articles from over 1000 current or recent biology and biomedical journals. In addition, it allows for searching of a wider range of biological science journals, including medical journals, with links to access the text via other library services.

Full text: About 25% of the content (from over 1000 current journals) is available immediately in PDF from ProQuest.

Search Tip - Useful Limiters

  • Use the Peer reviewed and Full-Text limiters to get immediate access to high-quality journal articles.
  • Use the Peer reviewed limiter alone to search for all scholarly/research reviewed material in the database.

Source types include:

Most of the content is from scholarly journals, but dissertations are also common. The other sources will appear less frequently in the results.
