BIO 251 - Human Physiology: Dave Green: Articles & Video

Find information here for your BIO 25100 Toxicology Research Project.

Where Do I find Articles?

The best place to find articles is to search the Library's databases. They contain magazines, journals, newspapers, reference books, video files, audio files, and podcasts. 

What databases will be the best for this project? You can search any of the Nursing & Allied Health databases.

Kirtland librarians recommend starting with:

Peer Reviewed Articles

Some journal articles are peer reviewed.  Peer reviewed articles carry more authority than other articles because their content has been reviewed by subject experts prior to publication.  Databases allow you to limit your search to peer reviewed materials.  By doing so, you assure that the resources you are using are reliable and acceptable for scholarly work.

 

In Gale's Health and Wellness Resource Center database just below the search box are options for limiting your search.  Instead of the term peer-reviewed, the term refereed publications is used.  Check refereed publications to limit your search to peer-reviewed materials.

 

You may not always have the option to limit your results to peer reviewed articles on the first screen.  You might need to do an advanced search or complete a search and then select peer reviewed on the results screen.

 

Gale Health Reference Center Academic is an example of a database which provides the option to limit results to peer reviewed journals on the results page.  There, choose peer reviewed from the list of filters found on the right side of the screen.  Notice this screen offers other helpful features such as the ability to sort by relevance and view subjects.

Sample titles:

The Magic of Mushrooms

Modern Marvels: Poison

Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef: Globe Trekker

Tobacco: Addicted to Pleasure

Venom: Nature's Killer

Many titles provide transcripts (look at the tabs in the box to the right) which can be helpful when citing. Some also allow searching within a transcript to more easily find relevant information, however you need to scroll through the transcript to look for highlighted terms.  It does not automatically jump to them.  Broadening your search term and then searching within the resulting titles takes time but usually generates more results.
