Overview

Provides extensive coverage of the literature in environmental science, ecology, sustainability, pollution, water management, and other areas within this multidisciplinary field.

Offers full-text access with comprehensive discovery through extensive abstracts and indexes structured using controlled vocabulary managed by expert editorial staff. Features advanced tools for postgraduate researchers, along with innovative features such as Illustrata™ deep indexing of tables and figures.

By simplifying the interface, including full text, and combining very niche databases into broader subject groups so they can be searched collectively, the database has been made accessible and unintimidating to less experienced users. All researchers will value the confidence of searching within a specialized academic database tailored to their area of study.

Reliable Literature Reviews

Literature reviews are more reliable when you combine the power of extensive bibliographic records and ProQuest’s technological innovations in literature retrieval.

Illustrata™ deep indexing of tables and figures in journal articles makes these objects searchable. Researchers can go straight to graphical data within papers to discover relevant research more quickly.

Discover Gray Literature

Working papers, conference papers and proceedings, and theses reveal more current information than that in peer-reviewed papers. Reports, magazines, and trade journals add a practical dimension to research.

Appeals to Undergrad Users, Too
