Databases & Journals
The most frequently used chemistry databases are listed below. Use databases to find journals, peer-reviewed articles, substances, syntheses, properties, conference proceedings, patents, technical reports and other publications.
If you are unsure of where to start, contact your librarian (Amanda McCormick).

Review journals provide articles that summarize current research and are a great introduction to a new topic. In Chemistry, try the Annual Review of Physical Chemistry, Annual Review of Analytical Chemistry, or Annual Review of Biochemistry.
- ACS Chemical Reviews
The mission of Chemical Reviews is to provide comprehensive, authoritative, critical, and readable reviews of important recent research in organic, inorganic, physical, analytical, theoretical, and biological chemistry. In addition to the general reviews, the journal has published since 1985 periodic thematic issues focusing on a single theme or direction of emerging research.
