Best Databases for Health and Wellness Topics

Reminder:  Library Subscription Databases offer: greater ability to easily determine ReliabilityAccess to content that might not be freely available legally, and Features that add value to searches and articles, that just searching the open web using a web search engine does not.


Health & Wellness (Nutrition, Biology)

Reminder: These are databases specifically for  the listed topics. If your topic is not directly Health & Wellness, there are many other Gale Databases you can try.  Gale "Power Search"  searches across all of our databases. It will produce a huge number of results, which means more work finding relevant results, but it will also create more opportunities for potential matches.

The Science News Cycle

When Reading Popular Science Journalism...

Remember that when putting complex scientific findings into terms for a layperson, levels of meaning can be lost. Remember also that the web and social media (and even traditional, standards-based, journalism) can be driven by need for 'clicks' and engagement, which can lead to sensationalist or 'Click-bait' headlines.
