Periodical Databases


EBSCO - Provides several comprehensive periodical databases to choose from and you can search multiple databases at a time.   For health and medical articles, MEDLINEAcademic Search Premier and MasterFILE Premier are good choices.  

Periodical Database Search Tips

To narrow your search, utilize the advanced search options.  This will allow you to use two or more of your keywords.


In EBSCO, always check the full-text option (found in advanced search).  This eliminates the frustration of finding the title of a really great article, only to find the full version of the article is not available on the database.
