Online Journal Searches

Bibliographic Databases

Bibliographic databases provide references, not provide full-text articles. They provide the title, authors, source, abstract (when available), and other basic information about the articles so you may quickly sort through them to choose those that are of interest. Sometimes MedLine links to a full-text version of an article, either free or at a charge from the publishers online site.

PubMed/MedLine, a service of the National Library of Medicine (NLM), is a database of more than 9 million references to articles published in 3800 biomedical journals may be accessed free of charge on the World Wide Web.
