Find an article (databases)

Finding an article in the field of public health: databases

Public health is interdisciplinary. Thus, to carry out a bibliographic search, or to find an article, you must determine the databases corresponding to your research area.

Databases with licensed access are accessible from a CHUV workplace. Most of these databases allow the recording of research strategies and the setting up of alerts. However, you must first create a personal account.
These alerts allow localising the article but do not necessarily provide direct access. If some articles are sometimes Open access, free of charge, accessing the vast majority of them is against payment. 

Sciences, medecine, epidemiology
