Change to Biological Abstracts

This summer, OhioLINK is transitioning database access from the OSearch platform to various vendor platforms.

One affected database is Biological Abstracts.

Biological Abstracts, an index to over 4,200 international life sciences journals, is no longer available on the OSearch platform, but is instead searchable on the Web of Knowledge platform as Biosis Previews.

Biosis Previews contains the full Biological Abstracts database as well as reports, reviews, proceedings, and pre-clinical and experimental research. Its availability on the Web of Knowledge platform also connects it to other valuable WoK databases like Biosis Citation Index and Web of Science.

While users may access the database using their BGSU username and password, some features of Web of Knowledge are only available if you log in through OhioLINK using your ID number and last name.

If you have questions about this change in database platform, please contact the librarian for biological sciences, Chris Miko (, or the Electronic Resources Coordinator, Amy Fry.
