Use databases (also called journal or periodical indexes) to search for articles by topic or author.
Need a refresher? Consult our Database Help in the Sciences and Health Sciences Guide for tutorial videos on MEDLINE, CINAHL, and more.
Health science research is often multidisciplinary. Below is a list of multidisciplinary databases to start you in the right path. You can also use these databases to conduct basic searches to 'scope' out a subject; quickly find seminal articles; and conduct bibliometrics research. We do not recommend searching these databases as part of a systematic review.
