Best bets for finding research

Just want to browse through some journals? The link below will take you to an alphabetical list of several peer-reviewed epidemiology journals we have online access to here at Miami. This may be a good place to start for those of you having trouble finding an article you can use as the basis for your analysis paper. Not all of the articles in these journals fit the criteria for starting study, so you'll have to do a little bit of legwork to evaluate whether you can use it. If you're not sure, ask me or Dr. Abshire!

Looking for related research? The databases listed below are some recommended options for tracking down resources to use in your analysis. If you need a refresher on how to best use them, contact me!

Websites for background information

Below are some websites you may find useful when tracking down background research on your chosen topic. Be aware, this is by no means an exhaustive list; use the sites here as a starting point.

Get to Full Text with Find It!

Most literature indexes do not have the actual journal articles included within them.  Instead, these indexes just contain information about the article, e.g. titles, authors, abstract.

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.)
