Informatics for the public health workforce
All public health workers need, at some point, to find journal articles published in the professional or scholarly literature. You may need to find evidence to support implementing new programs, stay current with the latest research, or gather the latest health information. Whatever the reason, it is important to understand how bibliographic databases work, the basic search process, and how to retrieve the full text of the articles that you need. This tutorial provides an introduction to searching the public health literature, including numerous examples of freely available databases.
