Key Databases for Public Health

Google Scholar

Google Scholar provides citation information for most books and articles in its database. Unlike the other databases, it includes books and working and conference papers. Note that the citation figures provided by Google Scholar may differ widely from other databases, such as Web of Science, for a number of reasons (which we will not go into here!). Please be sure to go under "settings" and click on "library links." Then enter in Emory into the search box. Doing this will allow to link directly to Emory subscription content.
