DOH115 Research Skills Guide: Journal Databases

Why Use Journal Databases?

Journal databases:

  • Are the best source of academic or scholarly information for your assessments
  • Help you locate peer reviewed articles
  • Are subject specific, so that you get more relevant results
  • Have many options for refining results
  • Link between themselves, so that an abstract found in one database can help you find the full text in another database - if it is held by CSU Library



The Dentistry & Oral Sciences Source, Medline and ScienceDirect databases explored on the next few pages are just some of many databases the CSU Library subscribes to.
