ProQuest has hundreds of our products that touch the research lifecycle including many that are getting upgrades late this summer and fall. To be informed about upcoming changes, watch this page: http://www.proquest.com/productupgrades and sign up for updates; we will post new information as it becomes available. To keep up with the upgrades, our LibGuides are also being updated, so this LibGuide may not match the interface you see for a short while.

What is Environmental Sciences & Pollution Management?
Environmental Sciences & Pollution Management (ESPM) is a multidisciplinary database which provides comprehensive coverage of the literature relating to environmental sciences dating from 1967 to the present.
Millions of abstracts and citations are included from scientific journals within the relevant literature ensuring researchers have the maximum opportunity to discover articles or papers for their search queries. ProQuest editors assign index terms to describe the documents in journals, books, maps and reports.
Beyond the mainstream peer reviewed journals in this field this resource also provides abstracts of hard-to-get, low circulation grey literature publications (conference proceedings, reports, monographs, books and government publications), sometimes with links back to the full text (typically open access repositories). The database also includes good coverage of international content including non English language content.
ESPM is a product comprised of several sub-databases which can be searched individually or collectively:
We've indexed 2.4 million figures, photos, graphs and tables from over 700 journal titles in the Environmental Sciences component of ProQuest Illustrata. Indexed images enhance researchers' ability to retrieve the most relevant literature - an article featuring a relevant table indexed with terms matching your search query is very likely to be highly relevant to your research.
See the Figures & Tables Search page in this guide to begin uncovering the indexed images.
Environmental Sciences & Pollution Management editorial staff strive to meet the current requirements of the environmental science research community and to anticipate future needs. Selection of resources is a continuous process affected by the changing curriculum as well as ensuring we are meeting the needs.
