SCIENCE Online lets you search across multiple journals.

So that you can quickly and easily move from articles to the
full text of cited references, we have created hyperlinks from reference
citations to the articles to which they refer.
When an article in SCIENCE Online cites an article from
another HighWire-based journal,
hyperlinks have been created which allow you to move from the original article to
the abstract of the cited article. Likewise, links have been created
to allow users of other HighWire-based
journals to quickly and easily access
SCIENCE Online articles.
[List of Participating Journals]
These Inter-Journal links take you to the abstract of the
cited reference. Limited free access may be granted to allow you
free use of the single article which was cited by the original article.
As a service to subscribers, we are developing a custom Medline Search
Service. This service, will let you
search the citations and abstracts in the Medline/PubMed database as well as
material not present in conventional Medline databases, and will provide
advanced search and retrieval features specifically designed for the readers
of online biomedical journals.
The PubMed search system provides access to the PubMed database of bibliographic
information, which is drawn primarily from Medline and PreMedline. In addition,
for participating journals that are indexed selectively for Medline, PubMed
includes all articles from that journal, not just those that are included in
Medline. Finally, PubMed also provides access to the molecular biology databases
included in NCBI's Entrez retrieval system. It is expected that access to
additional National Library of Medicine databases will be added in the future.
