Use databases to search for journal articles and conference papers. Databases store bibliographic information about individual journal articles, typically author, title, topic and a summary or abstract of the article so that they can be searched. Most databases allow you to view the full text of the journal article, but if it is not available, the database will give you an article reference. If you require an article that is not available in full-text please make a Document Supply request. You will need an NHS OpenAthens account to access databases.
