This guide will provide you with a number of databases and other resources that you can use to find research and product information for your chosen supplement. Some of the databases have weird interfaces different than others you may have used, so don't be afraid to reach out to me if you have questions or get stuck.
You can use these links to jump to the different sections of this page:
|Primary Research||Secondary Research (aka Review article)|
|Typically follows IMRAD format (Introduction, Materials & Methods, Results, and Discussion)||Typically has an introduction; other section headings will vary|
|Reports on original research or data||Summarizes, analyzes, and/or synthesizes original research, but does not report on any new findings|
When you find an article of interest in an index, click the "Find It" button by that entry to get to the full text. If we have a subscription, "Find It" will provide a link to the journal article. (Or if we have the print, it will provide a link to the catalog with the location and call number.)
(A few databases, like Academic Search Complete, include full text for some articles. These databases may allow you to search only for articles available in full text, but be aware that you are only searching a small portion of the articles we actually subscribe to.)
My appointment scheduler is open for you to meet with me virtually. The default platform I use is Zoom, but if you prefer Google Meet or WebEx, that's not a problem at all.
