Current Database Trials

The Library regularly arranges trials of new databases. Have a look at any of the current trials that are of interest to you and let us know what you think. Your feedback is appreciated.

SAGE Research Methods

Description: SAGE Research Methods knowledge base provides essential support for course teaching in research methods and statistics. It provides over 175,000 pages of SAGE’s renowned book, journal, and reference and video content in research methods; a repository of over 400 original, specially commissioned case studies which show how abstract research methods to life are applied in real-life case studies; and a collection of datasets to support teaching and learning of quantitative and qualitative analytical methods. These are teaching datasets taken from larger national and international data sources, edited and cleaned for teaching purposes.

Interface Focus

Description: Each Interface Focus themed issue is devoted to a particular subject at the interface of the physical and life sciences. Formed of high-quality articles, they aim to facilitate cross-disciplinary research across this traditional divide by acting as a forum accessible to all. Topics may be newly emerging areas of research or dynamic aspects of more established fields. Organisers of each Interface Focus are strongly encouraged to contextualise the journal within their chosen subject.

Journal of the Royal Society Interface

Description: J. R. Soc. Interface welcomes articles of high quality research at the interface of the physical and life sciences. It provides a high-quality forum to publish rapidly and interact across this boundary in two main ways: J. R. Soc. Interface publishes research applying chemistry, engineering, materials science, mathematics and physics to the biological and medical sciences; it also highlights discoveries in the life sciences of relevance to the physical sciences. Both sides of the interface are considered equally and it is one of the only journals to cover this exciting new territory. J. R. Soc. Interface welcomes contributions on a diverse range of topics, including but not limited to; biocomplexity, bioengineering, bioinformatics, biomaterials, biomechanics, bionanoscience, biophysics, chemical biology, computer science (as applied to the life sciences), medical physics, synthetic biology, systems biology, theoretical biology and tissue engineering.
