Scopus Database

Scopus is a comprehensive abstracting and indexing database covering scientific, technical, medical and social science research literature back to the mid-1800s, including 15,000 peer-reviewed journals from more than 4,000 publishers, over 1200 Open Access journals, 500 conference proceedings, over 600 trade publications, 200 book series, and 22 million patent records from 5 patent offices. A primary feature of Scopus is that it can help identify research trends, track researcher output, identify important publications, and calculate one's "h index". Other special features include the ability to download multiple PDFs of articles at one time, as well as the ability to format your output as a bibliography.
