Annual Reviews

IZTECH Library subscribes to Annual Reviews

Annual Reviews is a collection of critical reviews of primary research literature in over 50 disciplines in the biomedical, life, physical, and social sciences. The disciplines covered include biochemistry, economics, marine science, medicine, nutrition, psychology, sociology, and many more.

Each discipline has its own journal on the Annual Reviews platform. A new volume with a new set of reviews is published for each discipline annually. These reviews synthesize the primary research literature in a specific topic area and identify the principal contributions to the field. Each review includes numerous references to recent journal literature, making them a valuable starting point for research. Reviews are written by experts in their fields.
