Medicine: Medical Databases

Introduction - What is a database?

A database is a searchable collection of information. When doing research you  should use a journal database to find journal articles. Each journal database contains thousands of articles. To search a database makes it quicker to find relevant articles  than searching in individual journals.

Many databases contain the full-text of the items. Other databases only have citations, but you can link into PRIMO (our catalogue) to find the full text article.

On this page you will find a list of databases relevant to medicine
