Marine Biology

A guide to information resources in Marine Biology

Scholarly Journals

The Marine Biology research literature can be found in a wide range of scholarly journals. Scholarly journal articles on a topic can be identified by searching the databases listed under the Home/Databases tab in this guide. In many of the databases, the "Get it at Dal" link will lead you to the fulltext of the article.

Some of the journal issues may be available only in print (paper format), in one of the Dalhousie Libraries. A Novanet search for the journal title will help you to determine if the journal issue that you need is available at Dalhousie or at one of the other Novanet libraries.

If Dalhousie's Libraries do not have the journal issue and article that you need, you may wish to order the article from another Novanet library or via Document Delivery, a service which is offered free of charge to Dalhousie students and faculty.

Here are examples of just a few of the journal titles which are likely to contain material of importance to Marine Biology students and researchers:
