Begin searching for journal articles in the databases listed below. As your topic develops, you may find one database to be more useful than another. Also consider citation searching to find additional information on your topic. Backward citation searching can find original research and put it in context. Forward searching will find works that have cited a paper since it was published.
When looking for original research, you will need to find journal articles. Use the following databases as starting points for finding information related to your topic.
Web of Science: use the citation searching feature to find citing and cited articles for your assigned paper
SciFinder Scholar: explore by substance or by research topic
PubMed: search by keyword and limit to a type of study or specific subjects or search by Toxicology Subset
Many of our databases have this button, which searches for the full-text of the article in our collections. If we don't have it electronically, look for the "Request article scan" link in the "Get It" section.
