Physical Therapy


Databases - Specific

New! Cochrane Library This eminently useful collection is comprised of the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews as well as several other databases, all covering evidence based medicine. Find the tutorial here.

Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature includes Physical Therapy among its allied health professions. CINAHL covers 1,835 nursing and allied health journals and other selected biomedical journals. IF you're supposed to be, or would like to be, searching with "CINAHL Headings" - watch this brief video. Since you're here, you can fast-forward the video to :27 if you like.

PEDro from Centre for Evidence-Based Physiotherapy (CEBP)
PEDro is a free database of evidence relevant to physiotherapy. It contains citations of over 5,500 randomised controlled trials, systematic reviews and evidence-based clinical practice guidelines. Where possible, abstracts and links to full-text versions of the documents are also provided.

MEDLINE with Full Text GALILEO logo from EBSCOhost
Created by the National Library of Medicine, Medline is the premiere medical database. Ebsco's version includes full text for nearly 1,200 of the 5,264 journals indexed in MEDLINE. Search results can be limited by type of research, reviews, and case reports when using the Advanced Search mode.
MEDLINE can also be searched in the NLM's PubMed database which includes "in-process" records for articles that have not yet been entered into MEDLINE. PubMed also covers a broader range of journals, but does not provide full text articles as Ebsco access does.

HealthSource Nursing/Academic Edition GALILEO logo from EBSCOhost
Covers nearly 850 journals from many medical disciplines and provides links to full text articles from nearly 600 scholarly journals. To include alternative & holistic sources in your search, select AltHealth Watch from EBSCO's database menu. It covers 160 publications and a small number of peer-reviewed journals.

Web of Science from ISI
In addition to covering over 22,000 journals, ISI's Web of Science covers conference proceedings, patents, and scholarly web content. Virtually all scientific fields of study are included. Web of Science contains the Science Citation Index, Social Sciences Citation Index, and the Arts & Humanities Citation Index and is designed to make it easy for you to determine the authors, institutions and journals most critical to a particular question or area of study by pursuing relevant citations. It also provides full text links to articles in over 10,000 journals.
