Featured Database: IOP Science
You can use databases to easily find organized collections of articles, journals, news, streaming videos, primary sources, data, and more!
Here’s one of our favorite databases:
What’s in it?
IOPscience is an online database published by the Institute of Physics that provides access to over 70 peer-reviewed journals and more than 2 million scientific papers across the physical sciences including physics, astronomy, engineering, computer science, and more.
Why should you use it?
IOPscience offers students and faculty in STEM fields an extensive collection of current research spanning physics, materials science, nanotechnology, computing, mathematics, and more.
Who should use it?
The primary users of IOPscience are researchers, academics, and students engaged in the physical sciences and engineering.
Why use a database?
When you use a specific database, rather than a search engine or discovery tool, you often can find more relevant sources. For example, subject databases include sources about that subject only, rather than a general search engine or discovery tool that includes information about everything. This way you don’t have to wade through thousands of irrelevant results!
