Welcome to the library guide for the Developmental Integrative BIology Group! On these pages you'll find the library resources recommended for your research areas.
Why Should I Search Beyond Google Scholar?
Google Scholar doesn't necessarily index all of the journals you need. Use GS with other journal databases to get complementary coverage.
Many articles in GS aren't peer-reviewed (e.g., student papers in institutional repositories); the majority of articles in the library's science databases are peer-reviewed.
Research papers have suggested that GS overestimates citations and should only be used as a rough estimate. Also see Web of Science and Scopus for citation counts on articles and book series, but you'll have to look at GS for book chapter or book citation counts.
If you use GS, be sure to set up the Library Links in the Advanced Search, so you link directly to the library's holdings. Be sure to select "University of North Texas System," not the "Health Science Center"
