Searching databases is a quick and easy way to improve the quality of your research. The information contained in databases is selected or reviewed by subject matter experts according to set criteria. Some key databases recommended for research in engineering are listed below.
Follow the link to QUT's library web site to find a complete list of other databases of relevance to engineering researchers.
Watch IEEE Xplore's short video blow for more information on how using databases can improve the quality of your research.
Search databases by keyword or subject searching.
Databases group resources on the same subject using a controlled subject vocabulary. As the terminology is standardised, subject searching enhances the relevance of your results.
The videos below provide guidance on searching specific science and engineering databases.
