Library Resources for Biomedical Laboratory Diagnostics: Finding Articles

Finding Research Articles

To find scholarly articles, search these databases:

Some may contain full-text articles, others may have links to full text, and others you will need to get the citation information and look up the journal in the MSU Libraries catalog.   For extra help on this, look at this other guide on Finding Journals and Articles in the MSU Libraries

  • PubMed
    PubMed is one version of Medline, the premier database/index for searching for clinical and biomedical journal articles.

               View another online tutorial on Retrieving full text of an article in PubMed

    This is another version of Medline with the same information as PubMed. It may be easier to start out with if you are having trouble getting good results from PubMed searching.
  • Web of Science
    This database also indexes articles in biology and clinical medicine and allows for citation searching.  Use the above databases first, however, for most results.
