If you need to research a topic related to science in any way, Gale’s Science in Context database is the place for you to start. You research a specific science topic, and Science in Context brings together magazines, newspapers, podcasts, websites, science experiments, biographies, academic journals, science dictionaries, reference books, and more to give you a contextual view of your topic. This resource is perfect for questions that require a broad view of a science topic, just like the One World Essays. It’s also just downright fun to explore.
