The indexes below are particularly useful for locating research on signaling mechanisms in plants. Many include full text of articles. Note that you may simultaneously search AGRICOLA, MEDLINE and Science and Technology Collection in EBSCOhost (follow the link, connect to EBSCOhost and then select the databases before entering your search).
AGRICOLA covers all aspects of agriculture and allied disciplines, such as animal and veterinary sciences, entomology, plant sciences, forestry, aquaculture and fisheries, farming systems, agricultural economics, extension and education, food and human nutrition, and earth and environmental sciences. This resource provides more than 5 million citations to journal articles, monographs, theses, patents, software, audiovisual materials, and technical reports.
MEDLINE via EBSCOhost authoritative medical information on medicine, nursing, dentistry, veterinary medicine, the health care system, pre-clinical sciences, and much more. Created by the National Library of Medicine, MEDLINE uses MeSH (Medical Subject Headings) indexing with tree, tree hierarchy, subheadings and explosion capabilities to search citations from current biomedical journals. Included are citations from Index Medicus, International Nursing Index, Index to Dental Literature, HISTLINE, SPACELINE, PREMEDLINE®, AIDSLINE®, BIOETHICSLINE®, and HealthSTAR®. Dates of Coverage: Varies by publication
Science & technology collection
Science and Technology Collection Contains full text journals and indexing and abstracts. Topics include: Aeronautics, astrophysics, chemistry, computer technology, geology, aviation, physics, archaeology, and materials science. Dates of Coverage: Varies by publication. e.

The periodicals below document research on signaling mechanisms in plants.
Science signaling is a weekly journal and online resource and information management tool relevant to processes of cellular regulation and cell signaling.
Journal of plant physiology
The Journal of plant physiology publishes research in plant physiology, biochemistry, molecular biology and functional biotechnology of plants.
The plant cell
The plant cell publishes novel research of special significance in plant biology, especially in the areas of cellular biology, molecular biology, genetics, development, and evolution.
Plant molecular biology
Plant molecular biology publishes research in all areas of plant biology. Coverage includes genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics, computational biology, biochemical and regulatory networks, and biotechnology.
Plant signaling & behavior
Plant signaling & behavior publishes research and reviews covering molecules and organelles related to signal perception and transduction, signalling complexes, plants in abiotic and biotic environments and information acquisition and processing.
PLoS [Public Library of Science] one is an international, peer-reviewed, open-access, online journal that publishes reports on primary research from any scientific or medical discipline.
Subject Searches for Journals in the Catalog
The searches below will identify all periodicals in the collections of the UNT Libraries for the indicated subject heading. Some of the resulting titles may be historical issues that are stored remotely. Some electronic issues may have embargoes on their most recent content.
Google Scholar Search
This search is broad and may find resources that are not immediately available from UNT Libraries. You can configure this search to have the results tell you whether you have full-text access through the UNT Libraries: start here, click on the Library Links option, search for University of North Texas System and then check the box to select it.
If UNT Libraries doesn't have it, in most instances access to materials from collections in other institutions is available through Interlibrary Loan.
The search box in the left column connects to the Libraries' Find Articles discovery tool that lets you simultaneously search 92%+ of our electronic resources for articles in the humanities, social sciences, or sciences.
A keyword search returns the highest number of results. The terms you search can appear in the fields for title, author, subject, main content or elsewhere within a record.
Refining Your Search
To narrow the results:
• Enclose words in quotation marks to ensure that the records retrieved include the two words as a phrase: "plant signaling"
• Add more topic terms or phrases: plant signaling hormones.
• Add specific subject terms (see box below) and search again.
The subject term that most frequently appears in research related to signaling mechanisms in plants is signal transduction.
Other subject terms that may prove helpful include:
• cell interaction
• cellular signal transduction
• molecular biology
• molecular recognition
• plant cellular signal transduction
• plant Development - physiology
• plant growth regulators - metabolism
• plants - growth & development
• plants - metabolism
• transcription factors - metabolism
