Annual Reviews

Availability: 
Resource Type: 
Description: 

Annual Reviews offers comprehensive, timely collections of critical reviews written by leading scientists. Volumes are published yearly for 46 focused disciplines within the Biomedical, Life, Physical, and Social Sciences including Economics.  Each year, Annual Reviews critically reviews the most significant primary research literature to guide researchers to the principal contributions of their field and help them keep up to date in their area of research. Each article is its own search engine, providing a gateway to the essential primary research literature referenced within each topic.

Annual Reviews is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide the worldwide scientific community with a useful and intelligent synthesis of the primary research literature for a broad spectrum of scientific disciplines.  These publications are among the most highly cited in scientific literature as indexed by the Thomson Reuters Journal Citation Reports® (JCR).

JoVE - Journal of Visualized Experiments

Availability: 
Resource Type: 
Description: 

Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE) is a peer reviewed, PubMed indexed journal devoted to the publication of biological, medical, chemical and physical research in a video format.

With participation of scientists from leading research institutions, JoVE takes advantage of video technology to capture and transmit the multiple facets and intricacies of life science research.

This journal contains no articles - only videos of experiments.  The experiments are organized into categories:

  • Neuroscience
  • Immunology & Infection
  • Clinical & Translational Medicine
  • Bioengineering
  • Applied Physics
  • Chemistry
  • Behavior
  • Environment

Videos are also searchable by keyword. 

Notes: 

The text of the experiment is provided on the screen below the video and can be downloaded as a .pdf file.

Citation information is provided with each experiment.

APS Journals (American Physical Society)

Subject Area: 
Availability: 
Resource Type: 
Description: 

The American Physical Society (APS) is a professional organization of physicists. See the APS homepage for information on the many roles it plays. One important function it has is to publish a collection of journals, many of which are highly influential. The Trent library subscribes to these journals.

The APS journals can be divided into three groups:

  1. The journal Reviews of Modern Physics publishes review articles, which tend to be fairly long (50-100 pages) and make a more or less complete presentation of the current status of a particular research area.
  2. The journal Physical Review Letters publishes short articles (4 pages) from all fields of physics which are thought to be important to their own field and to be of interest to those in other fields.
  3. The journals Physical Review A, B, C, D, E publish articles of intermediate length (10-30 pages) which are important to their own field. The letters A through E correspond to specific areas of physics, and ST stands for special topics. Click on each and the subject is listed in the heading.

PROLA is the Physical Review Online Archive.

This database provides access to the most recent information available through all APS journals, including those in PROLA and Physical Review Focus, an online index, society news and events, and articles scheduled for upcoming issues.

Note that Canadian physicists have their own professional organization, the Canadian Association of Physicists (CAP). The CAP website has a lot of useful information. The one publication of the CAP is the journal Physics in Canada.

Notes: 

APS journal articles are indexed in Physical Review Online Archive (PROLA) and users are able to link from PROLA to APS journal articles, where available.

Coverage: 
1986 - current
Update Frequency: 
As new issues are released.
Stable URL: 

A DOI is listed at the bottom of each article.

  • Example: http://dx.doi.org/10.1103/PhysRevB.91.134501

AIP Journals (American Institute of Physics)

Subject Area: 
Availability: 
Resource Type: 
Description: 

We subscribe to a select set of journals from this collection.  The system does NOT allow us to limit searches to those we subscribe to, however.  You must select a particular journal and browse it, or search all journals, including those for which we don't have full-text.

As of 2015, includes 9 journals from the American Institute of Physics (AIP):

And 7 Society journals:

No longer inlcuded (as of 2014): Journal of Physics and Chemical Reference Data

The following titles were previously available through AIP, but are now purchased from American Physical Society (APS):

  • Physical Review A- E
  • Physical Review Letters
  • Reviews of Modern Physics
Notes: 

Each title is browseable, but there is no search engine that searches all 16journals at once.  Suggested use of these journals:

  • If you already have a citation, use E-Journals A-Z to locate the article.
  • If you want to find articles on a topic, use Web of Science to identify useful articles, and Get It! Trent to link to the articles.
Coverage: 
1999 - current
