Databases are an organized collection of bibliographic data, designed to offer an organized mechanism for storing, managing and retrieving information and texts that enable to retrive searches by contents. Check the most used databases below.


AIP Scitation
 - Scitation is the re-launch of the Online Journal Publishing Service (OJPS), a leader in online sci-tech publishing and journal hosting since 1996. The name "Scitation" was chosen because it more accurately describes the platforms services to the scholarly community.

ArXiv - E-print service in the area of Mathematical and Earth Sciences

Bio-Rad Informatics Division - Bio-Rad offers services through web KnowItAll it allows access to a collection of over 1.3 million spectra (UV-Vis, IR, NIR, Raman, NMR, XNMR and MS).

Derwent Innovations Index (1963-presente) - Derwent Innovation Index (DII) incorporates information from Derwent World Patents Index®. This feature gives researchers a comprehensive view of the global market in the categories: chemical engineering, electrical, electronics and mechanics. Coding and additional descriptive information allows users to understand the importance of a patent and its relationship to other patents. Users can perform efficient searches of patents and citations from the desktop without the need for specialists in patent search.

e-Print Network - Integrated network of scientific and technical information.

EnFis - This database was created to collect, classify and record the scientific production in the field of physics teaching in Brazil in recent decades. Experiences and research are intended to can be shared by students, teachers and researchers.

ERIC - It is an online system for storaging academic journals in the education area, founded in 1995. Provides full-text search in hundreds of widely known journals.

ETDE Energy  - Over 4,361,000 bibliographic records and more than 352,000 full text documents. ETDEWEB includes information on energy R&D; energy policy and planning; basic sciences (e.g., physics, chemistry and biomedical) and materials research; the environmental impact of energy production and use, including climate change; energy conservation; nuclear (e.g., reactors, isotopes, waste management); coal and fossil fuels; renewable energy technologies (e.g., solar, wind, biomass, geothermal, hydro) and much, much more. ETDEWEB includes information from ETDEs Energy Database and information from US DOE/OSTIs Energy Citations Database. In addition to information from member countries, ETDEWEB contains worldwide information in the nuclear, coal, and global climate change areas.

FisBit - FISBIT is a program designed to retrieve information from its physics and related fields database. This database records non-educational publications so as to disseminate information to non-expert people.

GED ABNT - Database about Brazilian technical normalization.

IEEE - IEEE Xplore contains a comprehensive collection of full text documents, providing access to the most highly cited journals in electrical engineering, computer science, and electronics.  Access it here and see the CAPES tutorial .

Impact Factor e Eigenfactor -
Journal Citation Reports® offers a systematic, objective means to critically evaluate the world's leading journals, with quantifiable, statistical information based on citation data. By compiling articles' cited references, JCR helps to measure research influence and impact at the journal and category levels, and shows the relationship between citing and cited journals. Available in Science and Social Sciences editions.

INSPEC

International Tables for Crystallography - Its 8 volumes feature articles and tables of data on the research and application of crystallographic methods in all the areas related to the structure and properties of materials. Emphasis is given to symmetry, diffraction methods, techniques of crystal structure and chemical and physical properties of crystals. Its contents are of high value for education, it also has theoretical discussions, practical explanations and examples.

JCR - Journal Citation Reports (2001-2006) - Journal Citation Reports® offers a systematic, objective means to critically evaluate the world leading journals, with quantifiable, statistical information based on citation data. By compiling articles cited references, JCR Web helps to measure research influence and its impact, at the journal and category levels, and shows the relationship between citing and cited journals. Available in Science and Social Sciences editions.
