For Nursing research, try these databases first.
Depending on your topic, you might find information in these databases.
These resources are useful for BASIC information about a topic. Includes encyclopedias, dictionaries, etc.
Example Database Search for articles:
Example Google Scholar Search for articles:
1. Type in the journal title.
2. Click the correct journal title name from the results list.
3. Look for the "Refereed" designation. Refereed = Peer Review
When searching for full-text articles, click the PDF link to access the full-text article.
If there is no PDF, locate the Find Full-Text link . Follow these steps.
1. Locate and click on the Find Full-Text link for your article:
2. Click on the Database link where the full-text article is held.
3. Click on the PDF link in the database.
If you cannot access the full-text, consider submitting an "inter-library loan" (ILL) request.
Sometimes your librarian can help locate full-text even if it appears not to be available -- so feel free to get in touch before submitting an ILL request.
Google Scholar is a subset of big Google. It searches for items on the Internet that are "published."
Can't find full text? Submit a request. It's free!
