Search a bibliographic database:
- Compendex: general engineering and Inspec: electronics, computing, control, robotics, physics
- Video tutorial - 3:32
- PubMed: medicine and biology
- Web of Science: general science, medicine, some engineering. Good for tracking a citation
- Scopus: science, engineering, some medicine, particularly published after 1995. Includes citation features, a competitor to Web of Science.
