Superb Topic Coverage

Topics covered in Science Reference Center include biology, chemistry, earth and space science, environmental science, health and medicine, life science, mathematics, physics, science and society, science as inquiry, scientists, technology, and wildlife.

Science Reference Center is available via EBSCOhost or a dedicated interface that allows students to browse topics by category and have quick access to science experiments, a citation tool, and helpful research guides.

School Curriculum Support

By providing a wide range of topics, Science Reference Center satisfies the demand for standards-based content by providing teachers and librarians with articles correlated to state and national curriculum standards. The database contains a wealth of informational texts as well as real-world examples of the application of mathematical concepts in scientific research.

In addition, most articles are assigned Lexile® Measures to address text complexity requirements. Science Reference Center also links to EBSCO's Curriculum Standards Module, a tool that can help teachers correlate EBSCO content quickly and easily to Common Core, state- or Canadian province-specific curriculum standards. The module provides browsing of specific benchmarks, many which have recommended search strings for successful content retrieval.
