4. Scholars Portal Search

Scholars Portal Search is a new tool which allows simultaneous multiple database and full text journal searching for scholarly material as well as providing links to full text wherever possible. The available databases cover major areas of research: science, environmental sciences and pollution management, biological sciences, aquatic sciences and fisheries, biotechnology, engineering, computer science, sociology, art history, and linguistics.

While not intended as a replacement for subject specific databases such as Ovid MEDLINE or PubMed®, Scholars Portal Search is an additional tool which will be of special assistance to students and researchers seeking to broaden their research beyond traditional boundaries and to those engaged in interdisciplinary research. It is easy to use and groups results by categories such as journals, peer-reviewed journals, books and web resources.

Also part of Scholars Portal Search is RefWorks, a free web based citation management tool which enables collection of references and automatic formatting of bibliographies and reference lists.

Give it a try and tell us what you think about it for your area of research. Contact us at ask.gerstein@utoronto.ca
