ProQuest Natural Science Collection is a suite of databases containing full text of articles from peer-reviewed journals, conference papers, book chapters to trade magazines. Selected government reports and websites are also included. A special feature is that tables and figures inside the articles have been indexed separately, so that they can be searched independent of their parent articles. This is useful when searching specifically for maps, charts, or photos.

Supplementary Journal Coverage
This collection includes full text from almost a thousand journals in the above subject areas. JPL Library is not able to subscribe them individually, but we are happy to offer them through this database suite . The full text availability differs from journal to journal, and some of them are under a one-year embargo period, which means the full text of the article is available one year after the publication issue. Check the JPL Library A-Z list for specific coverage.
Library staff are available to give customized demonstrations about this Natural Science Collection to your group or section. Please contact the Library Reference Desk at email@example.com or ext 4-4200 to schedule a session.
