Searching Multiple Databases

Although some advanced search options are not available when searching multiple databases at once, these convenient combinations can be useful for basic searches. Not recommended for evidence synthesis reviews.


These three databases cover scholarly publications from a wide range of disciplines and should be included in comprehensive searches or if your topic spans multiple research areas.
