Searching the Literature

Research Databases at Oxford

Bibliographic databases can help to locate journal articles, conference proceedings, books and patents on a particular subject or by a particular author. Oxford's subscription databases can be accessed through Databases A-Z or by typing the name of a database in SOLO search box.

If you're on campus you can access most databases & e-journals directly. For off-campus access start at SOLO and log in with your Oxford Single Sign-On.


PubMed does not cover every scientific journal. To pick up references from other journals it is worth searching other medical sciences databases:
