It contains about 38 million records (including about 19 million records of documents published after 1996) and 230 million references from well over 18,000 journals from more than 5000 publishers. Of the total number of titles, there are about 16,500 reviewed journals, plus records from "open access" journals, conference proceedings, website contributions, information on patents as well as records of other specialised information resources.
