BIOL 306: Anatomy & Physiology: Article Databases

Article Databases

While SMSU subscribes to nearly 80 databases, the following are recommended databases for this project. If you need to use databases beyond these, please ask a librarian for guidance.

ScienceDirect Tips

ScienceDirect is an advanced database. For this project, you might find it helpful to try the following steps to narrow your results.

  1. Open the Advanced Search screen.
  2. In the "Abstract, Title, Keywords" box, type your disease and one of these words (depending on what information you need to gather yet): treatment, etiology, diagnosis, history
  3. Limit Article Types to RESEARCH ARTICLE and/or REVIEW ARTICLE
  4. Consider using the YEARS limiter to narrow your results by date (e.g., 2015 - present)

Interlibrary Loan

If you find articles in these databases that aren't full-text (and have used the "Search for Full-Text" link to search SMSU's other databases for the article), you can request a copy of the article via Interlibrary Loan.

Off-Campus Access

Remember you can access SMSU databases 24/7 from off-campus with your StarID login!
