Literature Discovery Tools

SciFinder - Chemical Abstracts U.T. restricted recommended resource

Web of Science U.T. restricted recommended resource
Search by keywords, authors, and also for papers that cite earlier papers. 1900-present. Tips and more info

PubMed recommended resource
Index to world biomedical literature, 1950-present.

Analytical Abstracts U.T. restricted
Covers the journal literature of analytical chemistry since 1980 and is searchable by analyte and matrix as well as by conventional keyword and bibliographic data.

Google Scholar
Google's scholarly literature search engine is very large, although there isn't a way to know what it actually covers and what it doesn't. It also lacks features to focus and manipulate results that tools such as SciFinder and Web of Science have. One advantage it does have over other services is that it indexes the full text of most documents, which traditional index databases don't do. Don't rely on GS for comprehensive research. Off-campus UT-Austin users should use this proxied link to have access to licensed full text.
