Databases: general overview

There are many different databases available for searching for literature and references for scientific research. Some of the databases are multidisciplinary and suitable for all. These databases are Scopus and Web of Science. The library databases, like UEF-Primo, are also multidisciplinary.

Many other databases are specialized in certain fields of science, like Pubmed, which specializes in health-related sciences in general, and MathSciNet, which only deals with mathematics. The links to these discipline-specific databases are shown at the end of this page and on the subpages of this module.
