About This Guide

This Guide brings together major research resources for Human Nutrition, Dietetics, and Sports Nutrition. These include article databases (for finding journal articles), major reference works, important professional organisations, and tips on citing and writing.

Different types of resources are available via the navigation bar, above.

For further assistance with finding resources for nutrition and dietetics research, please contact the Subject Librarian for Human Nutrition.

Services for Distance Students

Students enrolled in NUTN papers, Dietetics students on placement, and other postgraduates based outside of Dunedin are eligible to use the Library's free Distance Library Service to receive books and articles by post or email.

Plan your search

Before you start searching the databases, it helps to take time to plan your search.

Step 1:  Clearly define the topic or research question

Step 2:  Divide the topic or question into separate key concepts

Step 3:  Select alternative search terms and synonyms for each concept

Step 4:  Consider using text word symbols such as truncation and "phrase searching"

Step 5:  Select search terms to combine using Boolean logic - AND, OR, NOT

Step 6:  Select relevant databases via the Library homepage or your Subject Guide

Step 7:  When searching a database look for subject heading options

Step 8:  Run text word searches to complement subject heading searches

Step 9:  Review the results and modify your search strategy as required
