"... accesses multidisciplinary databases of bibliographic information gathered from thousands of scholarly journals. The databases are indexed so you
can search for specific articles by subject, author, journal, and/or author address. Because the information stored about each article includes the article's cited reference list (often called its bibliography), you can also search the databases for articles that cite a known author or work."--Tutorial screen.
