Biology: Articles & Databases

Academic Databases from BCC

Below are links to BCC databases that index science journals. These databases are subscription-based, so remember: when researching anywhere off-campus, you'll need to enter your 14-digit library ID number (located on the back side of your BCC Campus Card) in order to access and search for journal articles.

Why should I look for academic articles?

Why should you do research in academic journals?

  • Academic journal articles are often authored by scholars active in a particular field
  • Academic journal articles provide a close look at a particular topic
  • Academic journal articles often provide data to support their findings
  • Academic journal articles can lead readers to other sources through their bibliographies

If you find one good article that supports your research, you can use the bibliography at the end of the paper to locate further research.
