Books and Journals

Most Used Health Databases

  • PubMed  
      
    The best database for any health/medicine topic.
  • CINAHL
    A database named for its strengths; the Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature.
  • Scopus  
      
    A broad science-based database, with unique strengths in rehabilitation and physical medicine.

Databases for Systematic Reviews

In addition to the most used databases, there are several other databases generally included in systematic reviews. There is a high amount of redundancy/duplication between all databases in this list; however, each database has unique content. Other databases not included in this list may also be appropriate for inclusion, depending on the topic of the review. A comprehensive search includes all possible databases and grey literature.

  • Web of Science  
      
    Similar content to Scopus, this database includes many science journals.
  • Cochrane Library
    Cochrane Systematic Reviews are in PubMed, but this database includes other unique evidence based content.
  • PsycInfo
    Psychology, psychiatry, and behavior. Consider when searching the mental aspects of exercise and sport.
  • Sociological Abstracts
    Sociology. Consider when searching the socioeconomic aspects of exercise and sport.
  • SPORTDiscus
    Several important sport-related journals are only in SportDiscus. This database specializes in sport-oriented content (e.g. athletic training, coaching, and news stand magazines).
  • Academic Search Premier
    A general academic database that covers all topics. Because of the broad reach of health in society, it may be useful to search this database, which does not focus specifically on medicine.
