Peer-Reviewed Research

Nurses at Augsburg are required to use only peer reviewed articles in their research, but what does "peer review" mean?

See this explanation of the peer review process from Elsevier, a major publisher

You can find peer-reviewed, scholarly articles in the following databases:


CINAHL is the main database for all aspects of nursing research. Find articles from scholarly journals, conference proceedings, theses and dissertations, pamphlets, and books. See CINAHL search tutorials.

Advanced Search PubMed is the premier source for medical research. It is the world's largest medical database. Topics covered include health care administration, cancer, medical ethics, complementary medicine, space life sciences to name a few.

PubMed contains little full text, so use the Find It! button to see if we have the full text elsewhere.

For more advanced help searching PubMed, see the PubMed guide.
