BioMed Central is an STM (Science, Technology and Medicine) publisher which has pioneered the open access publishing model

All original research articles published by BioMed Central are made freely and permanently accessible online immediately upon publication. BioMed Central views open access to research as essential in order to ensure the rapid and efficient communication of research findings.

Selected Internet resources covering academic subject areasNatural sciences and mathematics

The E-print Network is . . .

. . . a vast, integrated network of electronic scientific and technical information created by scientists and research engineers active in their respective fields, all full-text searchable. E-print Network is intended for use by other scientists, engineers, and students at advanced levels.

Intute is a free online service that helps you to find the best web resources for your studies and research.

With millions of resources available on the Internet, it can be difficult to find useful material. Our subject specialists review and evaluate thousands of resources to help you choose the key websites in your subject.

NSF’s task of identifying and funding work at the frontiers of science and engineering is not a “top-down” process. NSF operates from the “bottom up,” keeping close track of research around the United States and the world, maintaining constant contact with the research community to identify ever-moving horizons of inquiry, monitoring which areas are most likely to result in spectacular progress and choosing the most promising people to conduct the research.

National Science Portals Following is a collection of links to other national portals of scientific information. Descriptions are taken from informational materials provided on the respective websites. Access to the information provided is controlled by each portal.

The NeuroCommons Project

The NeuroCommons project seeks to make all scientific research materials – research articles, knowledge bases, research data, physical materials – as available and as usable as they can be. We do this by fostering practices that render information in a form that promotes uniform access by computational agents – sometimes called “interoperability”. We want knowledge sources to combine easily and meaningfully, enabling semantically precise queries that span multiple information sources.

MedlinePlus Trusted Health Information for You
MedlinePlus will direct you to information to help answer health questions. MedlinePlus brings together authoritative information from NLM, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and other government agencies and health-related organizations. Preformulated searches are included in MedlinePlus and give easy access to medical journal articles. MedlinePlus also has extensive information about drugs, an illustrated medical encyclopedia, interactive patient tutorials, and latest health news.


OJOSE(Online JOurnal Search Engine) is a free powerful scientific search engine enabling you to make search-queries in different databases by using only 1 search field.With OJOSEyou can find, download or buy s cientific publications(journals, articles, research reports, books, etc.) in up to 60differentdatabases.

The mission of the Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) is to advance science and sustain technological creativity by making R&D findings available and useful to Department of Energy (DOE)researchers and the public.

At OSTI you can find research results and science information from the Manhattan Project to the present, download documents, view energy citations, discover patentsand e-prints, read about ongoing research projectsand amazing accomplishments, search science confererence proceedingsand software, and connect to U.S. and global science portals

The Public Library of Science (PLoS) is a nonprofit organization of scientists and physicians committed to making the world’s scientific and medical literature a public resource. Open Access: Everything we publish is freely available online for you to read, download, copy, distribute, and use (with attribution) any way you wish.

PubMed Central Logo.

PubMed Central is a free digital archive of biomedical and life sciences journal literature at the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), developed and managed by NIH’s National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) in the National Library of Medicine (NLM).

With an emphasis on in-depth coverage of all things scientific, REALscience is a local podcast with a national edge. Seattle is one of the nation’s foremost scientific communities and has the second largest publicly funded institution—the University of Washington.

REALscience fills in many of the local coverage gaps while attracting a broad audience interested in learning how science has an impact on daily life. By tracking cutting edge discoveries, complicated controversies and important information that all consumers should know, REALscience demystifies the world for a general audience.

The Library of Congress is a free, publicly available deep web search engine that uses advanced “federated search technology” to return high quality results by submitting your search query – in real-time – to other well respected search engines then collating, ranking and dropping duplicates of the results. Each search is done in real-time, searching the collections you select as if you were entering the search term on each separate website yourself. removes duplicate results, and then weighs each result for relevance according to how closely it matches your search word or phrase. searches over 42 databases and over 2000 selected websites from 14 federal agencies, offering 200 million pages of authoritative U.S. government science informationincluding research and development results. is governed by the interagency Alliance

is the most comprehensive scientific research tool on the web. With over 370 million scientific items indexed at last count, it allows researchers to search for not only journal content but also scientists’ homepages, courseware, pre-print server material, patents and institutional repository and website information.

Stanford University Libraries and Academic Information Resources (SULAIR) develops and implements resources and services within the University libraries and academic technology units that support research and instruction.

One-stop Searching of WorldWideScience Sources

WorldWideScience.orgis a global science gateway comprised of national and international scientific databases and portals.WorldWideScience.orgaccelerates scientific discovery and progress by providing one-stop searching of databases from around the world

General Search Resources

Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions, from academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other web sites. Google Scholar helps you find relevant work across the world of scholarly research.

INFOMINE is a virtual library of Internet resources relevant to faculty, students, and research staff at the university level. It contains useful Internet resources such as databases, electronic journals, electronic books, bulletin boards, mailing lists, online library card catalogs, articles, directories of researchers, and many other types of information.

INFOMINE is librarian built. Librarians from the University of California, Wake Forest University, California State University, the University of Detroit – Mercy, and other universities and colleges have contributed to building INFOMINE. We hope our service is useful and would appreciate any

ipl2 is a public service organization and a learning/teaching environment. To date, thousands of students and volunteer library and information science professionals have been involved in answering reference questions for our Ask an ipl2 Librarian service and in designing, building, creating and maintaining the ipl2’s collections. It is through the efforts of these students and volunteers that the ipl2 continues to thrive to this day.

ipl2 is the result of a merger of the Internet Public Library (IPL) and the Librarians’ Internet Index (LII).
