  • Databases to search for articles


Great for going deeper

Articles, which you can access through databases and through the library's catalog, will report on specific research done by scholars in the field. When you know your topic or research question, dig into articles for information that will support your ideas or answer your questions.

Search Library Databases

double arrow pointing rightStart with these core databases

Try these go-to databases first for nursing research and nursing journals. Then explore the other tabs of this section for databases that focus on various aspects of health and medical research.

magnifying class iconSearch Tips: Nursing Journals@Ovid

Nursing Journals@Ovid provides access to our subscription of the latest 5 years of a few key nursing journals and evidence-based practice resources. However, you can search more broadly within Ovid if you click on the link above the search bar to Change resources and add or switch to Journals@Ovid Full Text. You will then have articles in your search results that we don't have full-text access to. Don't ever pay for an article, and don't be discouraged if you see "Pay per view" articles. You can:

  • Request articles through ILL by clicking on the orange and white "Get it @ UJ" buttons you see in each search result.
  • Search the titles of articles without full text in the Library Catalog to see if we have access to them in other databases..
