Comprehensive Coverage of All Relevant Literature

Provide your researchers with the data they need to prepare research projects, grant proposals and follow trends in the life sciences. BIOSIS Previews combines journal content from Biological Abstracts® with supplemental, non-journal coverage from Biological Abstracts/RRM (Reports, Reviews, Meetings). Specialized indexing helps researchers discover more accurate, context-sensitive results.

Authoritative, Expertly-curated Content

Every item included in BIOSIS Previews has met the high standards of an objective evaluation process that eliminates clutter and excess and delivers data that is accurate, meaningful and timely.

Extensive Backfile Coverage Available for Deep Research

With optional backfiles back to 1926, researchers can track over 80 years of vital data and find the supporting — or refuting — data they need for their research. More extensive backfiles give researchers the power to conduct deeper, more comprehensive searches and track trends through time.
