Database Search Tips


PubMed is an ideal place to begin your biomedical research. Any full text links that say "PubMed Central" or "PMC" will route you the free full-text content of an article. If a full text link routes you to a publisher page that prompts you to pay for full-text access, return to the PubMed article information, look for the journal title, volume, and issue, and plug that information into Journal Finder to see if the Rice Library has a full text version. 

Remember, if we don't have it, you can request an electronic copy via Interlibrary Loan!
