Find scholarly peer-reviewed articles
For your HAPP assignment, you are also required to use scholarly, peer-reviewed sources.
Use library databases
The best place to search is our library’s online databases, or collections of scholarly journals, as you learned in Introduction to Public Health: Library Module #1 [link opens in new tab].
- You can search MEDLINE with Full Text and PsycINFO, two public health-oriented databases.
- You could also try some of the other databases on the Public Health & Health Education Research Guide [link opens in new tab]. Look at Search a specific database for articles.
Next, learn how to improve your searching methods by thinking about search terms.
