Ordering your journal article

The main purpose of a database is to find references to the good quality research evidence.

Usually you will be able to access the article straight away; however sometimes you will need to order the article through our Inter Library Loans Service   Note: Currently there is no charge for requests due to the Covid-19 crisis.

Google Scholar for citation searching

You can use Google Scholar as a research aid to track the citations of any article you are interested in or to get a sense of that article's impact.

Google Scholar does not cover specific journal titles or years and results are gathered using web crawlers. Non-scholarly sources may be included in the results so it should only be used in conjunction with academic databases and sources.
