Find Journal Articles

The primary resource for finding journal articles is PubMed. However, there are many other great resources that you can use to find published research. Google Scholar, for instance, relevancy ranks it's results allowing you to quickly see the most cited and clicked on articles, as opposed to PubMed which displays the most recent articles first.

  • PubMed  
    Search MEDLINE and get the full text of articles
  • Cochrane Library  
    Systematic reviews, meta-analyses, and clinical trials
  • EMBASE  
    In addition to basic biomedical journal articles, search the literature on pharmacology, pharmaceutical science, and clinical research
  • Scopus  
    Peer-reviewed literature covering multiple subjects
  • Web of Knowledge  
    In addition to clinical medical literature, search the basic sciences literature
  • PsycINFO  
    Psychology and psychiatry journal articles, books, and grey literature
  • Ovid Medline
    A different way to search the MEDLINE database
  • Google Scholar
    Be sure to set up Google Scholar with the appropriate library links so you will be able to access the full-text of articles once you find them
