Academic Research Begins with Academic Sources!!!

  • Internet search engines, such as Google, will return any result that is listed online
  • There is no way to focus Google Scholar toward medical academic literature
  • Academic search engines (or databases) return academic journal articles
  • Choose one of the medically focused databases when you are researching a medical topic.
