Academic Research begins with Academic sources!!!  Use one of the databases below to begin your research.

  • 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. (Note - the list below does not include Academic Search Complete because it is not a medical database)


Note: To access these from off campus you will need to log in to a screen that looks like this...

  • You name should be entered the same as it appears on your YSU ID
  • Your Y number is also on your ID.  Be sure to include the "Y"
  • Your pin is usually your Y number again unless you have changed it.
