Getting Started

A literature search is an integral first step in planning any research protocol. Scientists should critically review previous literature in order to:
  • Check if their proposed research is novel
  • Determine how previous similar studies were conducted
  • Find the severity of the procedures
  • Identify all feasible methods of testing the hypotheses in the planned study

When searching for animal alternatives it is important to review the 3Rs.

Principle investigators are responsible for conducting literature reviews to identify animal alternatives.  Librarians can assist by:
  • Consulting on literature searching strategies
  • Providing training on literature databases
  • Retrieving published books or articles (includes materials outside the Library's collection) more info
