PLOS: Public Library of Science - Biology

    PLOS Biology is an open-access* journal published by the PLOS. The journal features works of exceptional significance, originality, and relevance in all areas of biological science, from molecules to ecosystems, including works at the interface of other disciplines, such as chemistry, medicine, and mathematics. Our audience is the international scientific community as well as educators, policy makers, patient advocacy groups, and interested members of the public around the world.

    * Open access means that every paper is freely available for everyone to read, download, copy, distribute and use.


This Research Guide contains links to databases containing research articles, scholarly online resources, and information about print materials in Belk Library that can be helpful for your topic.

It can be helpful to read current biology news to find ideas for TOPICS that would be interesting to research.  Glance through titles like Scientific American, New Scientist, Science News, Discover, Science, and Nature to see what's making news in biology, or check the biology news websites.  Here are links to online access.  There's also a database link below to ACADEMIC SEARCH PREMIER, a good place to start because you can get magazine, newspaper, and academic journal coverage all in one place.
