What is a Database?

A database is a website where you can search for:

  • Journal articles
  • Conference papers
  • Reports
  • Books
  • Patents
  • Standards

Some databases focus on a specific area while others cover a wide range of subjects, for example: Academic Search Complete covers a wide range of topics like Engineering, Computer Science, Physics, Business, Political Science...etc. while OnePetro specialises in Petroleum & gas fields only.
