Need a summary of research in Biomedical, Life, Physical, or Social Sciences?
To supplement our ongoing access to the Annual Reviews, Snell Library is pleased to offer the Electronic Back Volume Collection, which has over 70 years of research online — timely collections of critical reviews written by leading scientists and social scientists from 1932-2006. It offers seamless access to a comprehensive collection of all available Annual Reviews Sciences Collection back volumes, with content dating back to the very first volume of the Annual Review of Biochemistry in 1932.
Features and Benefits
- A comprehensive online collection of available Annual Reviews Sciences Collection with content spanning Biomedical, Life, Physical, and Social Sciences, including Economics
- Immediate access to 1,100+ volumes, comprising over 25,000 critical and authoritative review articles from 1932-2006
- Color and grayscale figures, charts, tables, and cited literature available via full-text searchable PDFs
You may also wish to look at Annual Reviews‘ audio and video series featuring interviews with foremost scientific scholars.

Our very own Northeastern researchers have offered a new look towards “merging the tools of network science and control theory” to better control complex systems. Their findings were featured on the cover of the May 12th issue of the journal Nature.
Albert-László Barabási, a professor in the Departments of Physics and Biology and in the College of Computer and Information Science, and Yang-Yu Liu, a postdoctoral research associate in Physics, coauthored the paper, along with an MIT colleague.
Their focus was to merge control theory with network science research in order to create more efficient methods of gaining control of a complex system, such as cellular networks or social media, by identifying the driving nodes of the system. Read more about their research in this news@Northeastern press release. You can also find more of Professor Barabási’s research publications in IRis, Northeastern’s institutional repository.
Congrats to our NU researchers for this inspiring breakthrough!

The Libraries have a great new resource available for students and faculty: the Henry Stewart Talks, also called The Biomedical & Life Sciences Collection. Here’s a way to browse and view or listen to lectures by experts in the sciences, including Nobel Laureates.
There are over one thousand seminar talks to choose from, on topics ranging from Antibiotic Resistance and The Blood-Brain Barrier to Health Economics and Using Bioinformatics in the Exploration of Genetic Diversity.
Some are overviews, while others cover recent developments. Note the wide range of lectures on Cognitive Neuroscience.
While the focus is on biomedicine, the seminars also are useful for those who focus on the social and administrative science aspects of medicine and life sciences.
When this was a trial resource, we received many enthusiastic comments from the NU community, which helped to make this purchase possible. Remember that your comments on trial resources are always valuable to the staff and are considered when we make our collection decisions.
