Pharmaceutical Sciences: Searching for information

Looking for articles on your topic?

The quickest way to find articles on a specific topic is by searching a relevant database.

The University Library subscribes to hundreds of databases, but we recommend the ones listed below as a starting point for students and researchers.

Some provide only citations for articles, so look for Article Link to connect you to the fulltext, or try one of the methods described in the column on the right to access a copy.

If you need to bulk export records from a database, check these steps first.
