Physician Assistant: Wake Forest PA Program @ Boone
Late February 2021 -- Google Scholar often becomes difficult to access during midterms. Google does not like that we have so many people going through our off-campus connection. We have to respond for a week or so by having our log in on the Find@AppState link. This means clicking on article titles will not work as it normally would. Use the Find@AppState links.
Need help? I'm available: email wiswellj@, Zoom, chat, appointment. Zoom by appointment. Email if these times don't work.
I have Zoom office hours Wednesdays 3-4pm and Fridays 11-12noon. I'm scheduled for chat right before these times also, Wed1-3 and Fri 9-11.
The link to Wake Forest's resources for Physician Assistants is just to the left.
This list is based on Wake Forest's list. But Appalachian does not have exactly the same access as Wake Forest. If you do not find a databases or full text from one library, try the other also. (For journal articles, I always check the Web also.)
This is the National Library of Medicine's public database. This version links to AppState's full text journals. PubMed includes Medline. We also have another version of Medline that is part of our Web of Science databases.
PubMed provides access to bibliographic information from more than 5,200 journals in the life sciences with a concentration on biomedicine.
PubMed is a service of the U.S. National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health, and provides access to over 14 million citations and abstracts in the fields of medicine, nursing, dentistry, veterinary medicine, the health care system, and preclinical sciences.
CINAHL focuses on Nursing and the "Allied Health" fields. It's good for many health questions.
Provides indexing to nearly 1,200 nursing, allied health, biomedical, and consumer health journals, as well as publications of the American Nurses Association and the National League for Nursing. It includes healthcare books, nursing dissertations, standards of professional practice, nurse practice acts, and educational software. Abstracts are included for over 250 journals.
Full text of regularly updated systematic reviews of the effects of healthcare, prepared by The Cochrane Collaboration. This also includes CENTRAL and several other databases. DARE is in there, but it's no longer being updated.
Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews contains full text articles, as well as protocols focusing on the effects of healthcare.
Data is evidence-based medicine and is often combined statistically (with meta-analysis) to increase the power of the findings of numerous studies, each too small to produce reliable results individually.
Citations and abstracts to articles in over 780 educational research and education-related journals and to ERIC (Educational Resource Information Center) Documents. Includes research findings, project and technical reports, speeches, unpublished manuscripts, curriculum guides, and books. Coverage: 1966-present. Updated: Monthly.
Sources include journal articles, research reports, curriculum and teaching guides, conference papers, and books. Each year approximately 30,000 new records are added.

The database also includes information about the psychological aspects of related fields such as medicine, psychiatry, nursing, sociology, education, pharmacology, physiology, linguistics, anthropology, business, law and others. Coverage: 1887-present
Web of Science indexes the best journals for much the sciences and social sciences.
It is especially useful for tracking down who has cited articles (but also use Google Scholar and Dimensions, app.dimensions.ai, to do this.)
Web of Science also offers a true cited reference index, which allow you to trace particular research forward in time or backward in time to see how works grow and develop in a focused area of research.
Still not getting full text? Many full text articles are available for free in some form. If you have a distinct article title or a DOI, try a quick search in Google Scholar (and Google). We also have ILLiad to get articles from other libraries.
Access to 2 libraries but also other libraries
Remember that if you need full text to an article or you need a book, you have access to both the WFU Carpenter Library and ASU Belk Library. Check both and check the web for free versions too.
If the article you need is not available through either library or the web, you also have interlibrary service through both libraries. My colleague, Dianna Johnson, does a great job getting articles and they usually come in about 24 hours. Also books, dissertations, and other resources, though those take longer. We also buy things as needed, including articles. So consider setting up and using an ILLiad account. We have a link to ILLiad on our main page and also the Find@ASU button offers that when we do not have a subscription.
