Health Advocacy: Find Articles

Contains information on the general subject as well as specific course information.

Finding Articles

To search content from many journals at one time, databases are best.

Here are a few databases that may be relevant for your class. 

Finding Full Text

Some of our databases provide full-text articles (indicated by a PDF or HTML link after the citation).  Others only show you the titles of articles.  For these, click Article Linker to find out whether we own the journal in print and/or online.  Note the year of the journal article and make sure we own the year you need!

If we don't own the journal article you need, you may order through InterLibrary Loan.  See below:

Both Sides Now

There are always 2 sides to every issue.  Healthcare and healthcare law, politics, education are often controversially discussed.  Use these databases to explore the chronology of a given issue, the pros/cons of the issue, and the global context or implications.
