This guide is a starting point for research related to Chemical Engineering at Florida Tech.
Peer-reviewed journal articles are the most respected and authoritative method of communicating scholarly information. The Key Databases listed below are those most useful to Chemical Engineering students.
Provides searching of bibliographic records in a broad range of sciences via Web of Science Core Collection (1965 - present), BIOSIS Previews (1979 - present), Zoological Record (1864 - present), MEDLINE (1950 - present), and Journal Citation Reports (2007 - present).
Internet-based access to the Compendex database of citations, abstracts, and indexing of the world's engineering journal articles and conferences from 1884 to current, plus Web site abstracts and information about specifications and standards
A one-time registration is required. Search for information related to biology, biochemistry, chemistry, chemical engineering, marine biology, oceanography, and physics. Register with your fit.edu e-mail address to access. Search the Chemical Abstracts, MEDLINE, CAS Registry, and CASReact databases by research topic (keyword/s), author name, chemical structure, chemical name, or chemical reaction.
Google Scholar is great for a quick search for a very specific item, but with more general searches, often retrieves too many irrelevant items and misses important publications that are only available through database subscriptions.
From on-campus, Google Scholar will link to the library's full-text holdings, if available.To display links from off-campus, go to scholar.google.com, select Settings then Library Links. In the search box, enter Florida Institute of Technology, select the correct check box, and Save.
