Provides full-text access and deep domain-focused discovery

This collection facilitates precision discovery with extensive full-text access to a vast range of theoretical and applied science and engineering literature. Full-text content differentiates ProQuest from A&I providers bringing value and access beyond other citation and abstract resources and higher usage.

Facilitates exploration of the latest research in less time

Faculty and graduate students, having limited time to review more and more content, place a high emphasis on abstract quality, especially when judging a journal article’s impact and importance. ProQuest offers researchers high quality abstracts within their domain (including foreign publications) to review and assess which articles to actually invest time in reading fully.



Meets a wide range of skill levels

The SciTech Premium Collection supports a wide range of search strategies for all types of users, from early and general researchers to domain specific search experts.

Ease of use

Available on ProQuest, named as Best Interface in the 2015 Charleston Advisor Reader’s Choice Awards: “It is much more intuitive and easy to use than previous versions. It includes improved document viewing, easier navigation…Kudos to ProQuest.”

Leads discovery of grey literature

Reports, working papers, conference papers and proceedings, trade publications, and theses are useful for uncovering research that is so new that it has not yet passed the peer review process.

Provides wide scope of coverage

The scope of coverage, journals, conference proceedings, dissertations, and more cannot be duplicated in a stand-alone aggregated database.



Proves return on investment

The coverage and precision needed for advanced literature reviews is combined with a simple, user-friendly interface and access to full text allowing beginners an accessible and rewarding search experience that translates into much higher usage.

Provides multiple channels of discovery

All content in the SciTech Premium Collection is discoverable in The Summon® Service from ProQuest and other discovery layers. In addition, as with all other ProQuest database resources, scholarly full text content is discoverable in Google Scholar.

Support & Training

ProQuest offers best-in-class customer service, technical support, and training so you can hit the ground running with your ProQuest products and leverage everything they can do.
