Databases, for Finding Journal Articles

APPsearch, on our main page, is useful for many searches.  It will search most of the databases listed below.

For most important health problems, there should be a recent systematic review of all studies.  Try including the phrase "systematic review" or just "review" in your search.

Getting Full Text!

Our Find@ASU button in our article databases takes you to electronic full text, if we have it. 

Find@ASU button that tries to take you to full text

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.
