Finding Articles on Health-Related Topics
Use databases to find citations to (and sometimes full text of) articles and other materials. Below are listed a few major databases that are good starting points for finding journal articles in many areas of health sciences. Each database indexes a different
set of journals, so even though you may find many of the same citations
in each database you may also find unique citations.
