  • Recent actions good answer to getting lost in cyberspace Tracks all action, number of searches done, number of full text documents opened, number of journals/books browsed. All listed out for you in one click. Number of full text particularly useful to track use for a user &gt;&gt; acceptable use policy?
  • Reference works not included infavorites Can access from any computer anywhere because stored on our server unlike favorites in explorer Able to search only favorites in journals or books tab
  • Notes on searching for journals/books If you enter search terms in any of the other Quick Search fields, your search will return articles instead of journal and book titles. You can search a specific journal or book using Quick Search. When the text, --This Journal/Book--, displays in the Journal/book title field and you are viewing a journal or book home page, entering terms in the other Quick Search fields will search only content in that journal or book. You do not have to enter the entire title. For example, entering neuro bio will return all titles that include those letters.
  • Sample Issue Online About this Journal Guide for Authors Submit your Article Guide for Authors
  • Average amount of books per collection: 140 Smallest Collections : Veterinary Science and Veterinary Medicine: ~20 books Energy: ~40 books Biggest collections Chemistry: ~370 Engineering: ~500 books (includes Referex) Average price per collection: ~ $15,000
