Click [Choose Databases] to add the following additional databases:
I recommed you add the following databases to your search: Biomedical Reference Collection, CINAHL Plus with Full Text, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, Cochrane Methodology Register, Health Technology Assessments, International Pharmaceutical Abstracts, Nursing & Allied Health Collection
Your Instructor may ask you to find the "Impact Factor" of a publication.
You will use the database Journal Citation Reports to find this number.
Journal Citation Reports® offers a systematic & objective way to evaluate journals by using a scientific equation which shows research influence and impact at the journal and category levels, and shows the relationship between citing and cited journals.
Finding the full-text of an article is easy!
Use the button within the database. This will open a new window called the Web Bridge where you can obtain the article through one of these methods:
• Full Text Databases (if available) → click on database name, i.e. ScienceDirect or HighWire Press
• NSU Electronic Journal Collections → Search Journal Finder
• Library Catalogs (In-Stock) → Search NovaCat
• InterLibrary Loan/Document Delivery → Order the item through ILLIAD
Note: using the Journal Finder, NovaCat, or ILLIAD may be done independently from the HPD Library Home Page. Look under the column titled QUICK LINKS on the left side of the page.
Do you need a article that we do not own (electronically or in print)?
If so, use Interlibrary Loan!
***ONLY Distance Students can request electronic delivery of documents in the HPD Library Collection (this service is called Document Delivery)
