Literature Searching using Ovid and PubMed


Literature searches

Members can undertake their own literature searches using Ovid or PubMed.

For Ovid databases, you need to login using your OpenAthens account. If you don't have one, please email the Library to register for access.

PubMed is freely available. Select the Advanced Search option to combine the terms in your search strategy.

Ovid provides access to Embase (1974-), and several journal titles.

EBSCO Discovery hosts Medline, PsycINFO, the Library Catalogue, and our e-journals.

Tip: For greater accuracy, search each database separately, and export sets of results to Word.

In this way, you can use the Filters available in different databases to refine your search.

If you have any questions or would like the Librarians to do the literature search, please contact the Library.
