Database Help

Science Primary Literature is composed of two files:

*Student Database — provides access to journal articles, books, book chapters, and a few images that have been found useful by college and university undergraduate science students. 

The publications included in the Student Database have been both:

  • used and cited by multiple students in papers, labs, experiments, projects, etc.
  • highly cited in the scientific literature

*Featured Database — provides access to journal articles and books that have been identified through the Strategian Science blog.

Each record indicates from which database that item comes.
