You can access full-text articles with evidence-based practice research in several of our subscription databases, including:
Each database has advanced search tools that allow you to limit results:
- by date
- by geographic area
- by age of subjects
- by gender of subjects
- with suggested SUBJECT headings related to your search
In the CINAHL database, scroll down the limits options and select the "Evidence-Based Practice" option.
If an article of interest is shown as "abstract only" in a database you're using, it may be available in full-text in another of the library's subscription databases. Use the "Check For Full Text Availability" link to jump to alternative database sources and search the "Journals by Title" tool to locate copies of the journal online or in our print and microfilm collections (Lower Level of the library).
If our library doesn't have the journal issue you need, the article can be requested using the ILLIad interlibrary loan service - http://sacredheart.illiad.oclc.org/illiad/. You will need to create your ILLiad account (free) before you can make the request.
Our health sciences librarian, Geoffrey Staysniak, has prepared a Research Guide on Evidence-Based Practice research which is linked below. It included tutorials on the Cochrane database system and techniques for using PubMed for EBP searches.
