Searching systematically. Online

Tue 14 May 2024, 10:00 - 12:00 BST (GMT+1)

This online searching systematically workshop will introduce you to the four database platforms that house most of the medical and health sciences databases. This session is based on the searching systematically workshop delivered on Campus.

You will be shown how to replicate a search topic in these four database platforms: EBSCO and OVID platforms which host databases such as PsycInfo and CINAHL, and Clarivate and Proquest platforms which host the Web of Science and ASSIA databases.

There will be allotted time for you to practice or ask questions after each of the four demonstrations
