Dear Jean-Marie,

What you probably need is to build a search profile and metodically examine
the information appearing in databases such as

Chemical Abstracts
Biological Abstracts
Index Medicus
Science Citation Index

There may be some duplication between the databases. The commercial
representatives of these databases at your place will be able to inform you
about the charges and may help you to build your profile.

All the best,

Jacob Zabicky
