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.
You can find information in any of the Nursing & Allied Health databases.
Kirtland Librarians recommend starting with the following databases:
Try adding these subject headings to narrow your search:
Medical personnel – professional ethics
Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act 1996-US
Medicine – Decision making
Law and legislation
On their web sites these journals offer peer-reviewed articles, some for free and some for a fee. Before paying for an article, check with the library. We can sometimes find the articles in our databases. If we don't have it, we can see if another library has it and will let us borrow it through interlibrary loan.
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.
*If you don't see the box to limit your search to peer-reviewed articles, make sure you have selected academic journals for your results.
