There is life beyond Google! Effective research tools for finding authoritative resources in family, community and public health
MetadataShow full item record
The Internet is an increasingly important source for finding information in public health. Google and Google Scholar are powerful tools to discover this scientific knowledge. However, in academia, researchers often need to dig up beneath the surface and find more authoritative resources and tools beyond the free Internet and to discover contemporary trends in family, community and public health research through paid subscription databases. The aim of this poster is to show advanced search techniques to navigate the information landscape with specialized search engines (e.g. Clinical Key and POPLINE) and in databases (e.g. EMBASE, PubMed, and Scopus).
