Respiratory Care Research Guide

Use this guide to find peer-reviewed articles on health and medicine.


This page provides a list of research databases appropriate for finding peer-reviewed articles for medical topics. After linking to a research database, you will search by entering terms that describe your topic.

  • You will get better search results by using a few basic search techniques. To learn about these techniques, see the tab above labeled "Search Techniques."
  • Some research databases provide full articles. Some only provide citations and abstracts (summaries of articles). Some research databases provide a mix -- with some articles in full and some not (because a publisher will not allow the full article to be included in the database). When the full article is not in a database, you have some options for finding the full article. See the tab above labeled "Locate Full Article" for solutions to this dilemma.
  • If you have questions, do contact your librarian!

To find articles using research databases, continue to the "Find Journal Articles" box below.
