BIOSIS (Biological Abstracts) is back!

We now have access to the BIOSIS Previews database (i.e. Biological Abstracts Online) on the Web of Knowledge platform, with coverage from 1969 to date. You will find links to BIOSIS in the library catalogue and Metalib, or you can go straight to http://www.isiknowledge.com.ezproxy.liv.ac.uk/BIOSIS.

We cancelled BIOSIS several years ago, but a recent national agreement between JISC and ThomsonReuters has seen the BIOSIS Previews Backfile 1969-2008 purchased nationally by JISC, and the Current Data of the database made available to 'new' subscribers like us for a nominal fee that we have agreed to fund.
