Welcome to the subject guide for Biological Sciences.
STOP PRESS! The Library has a trial to Methods in Molecular biology until 7 July. This database provides access to many useful biomedical and life sciences protocols, often with useful time-saving tips in the notes sections. Take a look - feedback is welcome. Send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We've had to make some changes to Library services to make everything COVID-secure: check out our COVID-19 FAQs. You must have your campus card with you to enter the building.
Remember to install the Library Access tool onto your laptop as this will make accessing the full content of a journal article so much easier.
Need help with your assignment? Take a look at our First Assignment and beyond study guide we have created with the Learning Enhancement Team.
Whilst I'm not currently working in the Library building, if you need help, I can still be contacted via my email using the link on this page.
Keep a watch on the UEA Library Twitter feed for all the latest news.
If you already have a reference for a journal article and want to read the full text, search for the journal title in Find Journals and then look up the relevant year, volume, issue no. and page numbers.
There are several alternative databases that you can search to find journal articles. Each indexes slightly different journals, so you will get different results from searching each of these:
Database of journal citations and abstracts for biomedical literature from journals covering medicine, nursing, dentistry, veterinary medicine, health care systems and the biomedical sciences. Available via 3 alternative routes:
Some other key resources are:
Articles from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory annual conference on new developments in biological research.
Good introductions to topics: follow up the references for further reading.
Genetics, cell biology, science communicaton and scientific career information provided by Nature Education
Links to government publications from DEFRA, Food Standards Agency etc.
