Large database containing high-impact research articles. Allows you to sort your results by how many times each article has been cited or used by other researchers. The more times an article has been cited, the higher impact it has had.
Updated weekly. Covers more than 12,000 journals in all subject areas. Also includes citations to conference proceedings. Choose Search in order to search the database by topic, author journal or address. This search includes articles, reports, books and book reviews and may be searched by keyword (topic searching), author (person searching), institution, or geographical area. Choose Cited Reference Search to search for articles that cite an author or work. This search includes the list of references at the end of articles and will allow you to search by the cited author, cited work, cited year or a combination of the three. Choose Advanced Search to combine aspects of the other two searches. The default selection for searching is for all the citation databases and for all years of coverage; both selections can be changed from the main search screen at the time that you select your search.
This database is large and contains both on a variety of subjects--not just nutrition. You will find fewer research articles on nutrition in this database, but you may discover articles you didn't find elsewhere. Be sure to use filters to limit your results to only PEER REVIEWED articles.
