One Health Study

Select List of Databases


Because One Health is by nature multidisciplinary, a wide range of databases may be relevant to different search topics.

Databases were originally developed by groups of professional practitioners to identify the key resources in their field and to apply search terms that addressed the unique needs of that profession.  Think about which fields of research are relevant to your topic, whether region-specific sources may be relevant and what subject headings are used to describe its publications.

Beyond broad-based databases like PubMed, Scopus and Google Scholar, consider specialty databases serving stakeholder professions.

Multidatabase Searching

NOTE:  You can search several databases from the same provider at the same time.  This limits the number of duplicate records you need to review in your results.  Note that this works best with textword searches.  It is best to rerun the search in the databases that had the best results using the subject heading terms found in relevant items retrieved in the search.

Ovid:  Choose the databases to search, enter your search terms to execute the search.  Choose the last set and Deduplicate, opting for MEDLINE as the first choice of records to retain, then the remaining databases. 

Proquest: First Unselect All, then select databases to search then enter your terms.  Duplicate results will be automatically combined.

EBSCOHOST:  At the top of the screen, click Choose Databases and select the databases to search.  Duplicate results will be automatically combined.
