CSA’s Environmental Sciences and Pollution Management (ESPM) database, a top scientific journal index for researchers in all areas of the environmental sciences, has just added the Environmental Abstracts database. Now, when you search ESPM (online access provided by UC Davis Library), you automatically search Environmental Abstracts as well. You may also choose to search Environmental Abstracts separately.
Beginning in 1975, Environment Abstracts indexes articles on all aspects of the impact of people and technology on the environment and the effectiveness of remedial policies and technologies. In 1994 the database expanded coverage to energy-related issues. Major areas of coverage now include:
• Air quality
• Energy resources
• Hazardous waste
• Industrial hygiene
• Pollution: land, air, water, noise, solid waste, radioactive
• Risk assessment
• Toxicology & toxic emissions
• Waste management
• Water resource issues
More than 950 scientific journals published in the U.S. and abroad are covered as well as conference proceedings, reports, and government publications. Significant monographs, government studies and newsletters are also selectively indexed. Visit the Environment Abstracts information page for more information. As with ESPM, you may use the embedded button to acquire articles of interest that your searches have discovered. Many of these articles are available electronically through Library subscriptions and you can access them from your own desktop.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance with searching Environmental Abstracts or any of the other environmental databases the library provides access to. We will be happy to schedule a one-on-one session with you to enhance your searching abilities. We also develop customized instruction for groups.
