Today's Science is a reference database that seeks to bridge the gap between textbooks and what's happening in science today. In a language and format designed specifically for students, it presents the latest scientific discoveries and the fundamental concepts that underlie them. Drawing on major scientific journals, magazines and newspapers in the United States and abroad, Today's Science covers health, the environment, technology, life science, physical science, earth and space science, and science and society. Today's Science presents and enhances the full backfile of Today's Science on File, a permanent record of significant developments in science and technology published monthly since September 1992. Today's Science also offers expanded teacher content, including menu access to articles that match specific National Science Education Standards.
