[edit] LexisNexis Academic

Environmental Science is a science in flux. More and more information about the state of the environment comes in as technology changes. Since it is so important to stay abreast of new information and global environmental discussions, LexisNexis Academic can be an extremely useful news source.

[edit] Enviromental Studies Search Form

The best place to find information on the Environment is the Environmental Studies Search Form. Click on the "Subject Areas" tab in LexisNexis Academic and then on the Environmental Studies Search form. Here, you can search through all of the best Environmental Sources in LNA.

[edit] Using the Index

You may want to search the news or other publications about the environment, as well. First, use the index to help you narrow your search. Try these Index Terms:

  • Ecology & Environmental Science
  • Environmental Regulation & Policy
  • Environment & Natural Resources
  • Natural Resources Management
  • Pollution & Environmental Impacts
  • Climate Change
  • Global Warming

For more information, please see the Academic Help: Environmental Studies

[edit] Best Sources

Also, use aggregated sources that deal with strictly environmental science. For example:
Environment Stories, which searches trade and industry news publications for Environment stories.
Environmental Stories, Combined, which searches all news stories for Environmental news.

You can also click the sources tab and choose the topic "Environment" from the topic drop-down box to view all sources that are somehow related to Environmental Science.
