Nursing & Midwifery: Databases

Using Databases

Databases are used to find journal articles. Some databases (such as CINAHL) are subject-specific; others (such as Scopus) cover a number of subjects. Databases are usually searched using keywords e.g. diabetes, heart disease, caesarian section. Single words or short phrases work best as keywords.
