The UCD libraries support the UCD departments of Animal Science, Entomology, Evolution & Ecology, Nematology, Wildlife, Fish & Conservation Biology as well as the only School of Veterinary Medicine in the University of California. Graduate level collections also support the Center for Population Biology, and graduate programs in Animal Behavior, Animal Biology, Avian Sciences, and Integrated Pest Management.

Scientific Publication Cycle
Peer-Reviewed Journal Databases
A process through which manuscripts submitted to a journal are evaluated for quality -- by one or more subject experts in addition to the editor -- before being accepted for publication.
ProQuest article databases (such as PsycINFO and PAIS) include a checkbox to limit to "Peer Reviewed" articles. For journals retrieved from other databases, use the online Ulrich's Periodicals Directory to locate your journal and then look for the black symbol indicating the publication is "Refereed".
Thomson Reuters Journal Citation Reports is a comprehensive tool for assessing the importance of research journals in disciplines and subdisciplines including medical specialties.
NOTE that review journals tend to be listed as top ranked titles, taking space away from original research titles, so use with caution. Typical review series may have the following words in their title: Advances in ... ; Annual Review of ...; Critical Reviews in ... ; Current Opinion in ... ; Expert Reviews in ... ; International Review of ... ; Progress in ... ; Trends in ...
Below are listed major publishers which the UC Davis or UC libraries have a license to. In addition, UC Davis libraries have begun to purchase eBooks from eBook aggregators. Currently UCD Libraries have licenses with eBrary, EBL and EBSCOHost. These books can all be found through the Harvest UCD Library online catalog.
Library literature databases for Animal behavior topics range from very broad databases which include animal behavior research (PsycINFO & BIOSIS Previews), to agriculture databases with domesticated animal information (CAB Abstracts and Agricola).
