Scholarly Article Databases

You may need to use medical databases to search for scholarly articles on a particular topic if you are not finding what you need via Summon. If you are having trouble or have questions, ask a librarian for help. If a citation does not include access to the full text of an article, you can request it through interlibrary loan.

Database Search Tips

Join keywords with AND: 

  • "diagnostic imaging" AND ultrasound
  • ultrasound AND fetal AND high-risk

Put quotation marks around phrases:

  • "fetal imaging"
  • "diagnostic techniques"
  • "vascular imaging"

Try different words or phrases:

  • ultrasound OR ultrasonography OR ultrasonic
  • (ultrasound OR ultrasonography OR ultrasonic) AND heart defects
