What is the Annual Reviews Database?

Annual Reviews is a database of journals in more than 45 scientific disciplines; it synthesizes primary research literature and identifies the principal contributions in each field.

Annual Reviews articles:

  • Capture current understanding of a topic, including what is well supported and what is controversial;
  • Set the work in historical context;
  • Highlight the major questions that remain to be addressed and the likely course of research in upcoming years; and
  • Outline the practical applications and general significance of research to society.

The number of Annual Review journals continues to grow over a broad range of disciplines within the Biomedical, Life, Physical, and Social Sciences, including Economics. The creation of a new title indicates that the amount of original research in a field has reached a critical mass.
