Provides full-text coverage of magazine, newspaper, and scholarly journal articles for most academic disciplines.
This multi-disciplinary database provides full text for more than 4,500 journals, including full text for more than 3,700 peer-reviewed titles. PDF backfiles to 1975 or further are available for well over one hundred journals, and searchable cited references are provided for more than 1,000 titles.
The Office of the Vice Provost for Research and the IUPUI Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research jointly funds Indiana University's subscription to Pivot for all IU campuses. Pivot is a database of funding opportunities for research.
Comprehensive, editorially maintained database of funding opportunities combined with a unique database of over 3 million pre-populated scholar profiles. Pivot's proprietary algorithm compiles pre-populated researcher profiles unique to Indiana University and matches them to current funding opportunities in the expansive COS Pivot database. This allows users to search for a funding opportunity and instantly view matching faculty from inside or outside IU.
The most important scientific journal literature is covered, with abstracts for the most recent articles; includes citation searching.
Covers all disciplines of science, providing indexing and abstracts of scientific journal articles. Offers enhanced cited reference searching; researchers can search the citation data (the footnotes of each article), taking a known, relevant paper and finding other, more recent papers that cite it.
SCI enhances the power of cited reference searching by allowing researchers to:
locate all cited authors, not just the first authors listed, for articles in the database
navigate forward, backward, and through the research literature
link to original article information when a cited reference of interest is found (for original articles covered by the database)
track "times cited" information for articles on a weekly basis through automatic updates
find an unlimited number of relevant items which share one or more cited references, through the Related Records function
hotlink to first and subsequent generation articles using prior research
discover key papers by ranking search results by "times cited"
Queries can be saved for researchers to modify and run against future updates in order to follow a particular topic over time.
