Marine Science: Article Databases

A guide for finding information and resources for Marine Science research

Article Databases

These are good sources for peer-reviewed articles in marine and environmental sciences. Over 90% of what is found here will be peer-reviewed (scholarly). To learn more about how to identify peer-reviewed articles, see the tutorials on this page.

BIOSIS (primary article database for biology)

GreenFile (environmental articles covering many disciplines)

ScienceDirect (articles from all aspects of science)

SpringerLINK  (selected-not all- journal titles available from this major publisher in science)

Web of Science (articles from the most important journals in all disciplines; see our interactive tutorial here)

Peer-Reviewed Articles

Featured resource: JoVE

JoVE (Journal of Visualized Experiments) is a science video resource that includes a variety of resources for use in the classroom and in the lab. It has two components:

  1. Science Education Video CollectionTeaching-focused videos including concept animations, ‘scientist in action’ videos to see concepts applied, and lab manual videos that cover preparation procedures for common labs
  2. Video JournalA peer-reviewed video methods journal, consisting of video demonstrations and detailed text protocols of new and standard methods in physical and life sciences. Students and researchers can see the details of experiments and concepts, in addition to text-based descriptions.

Below are a few links to components of JoVE relevant for Biology:
