Neuroscience Databases

The best place to find journal articles is in a database. Compare search results using the following recommended databases. Start with SuperSearch, thinking to search MEDLINE using various search engines due to it's unique content and Scholars Portal E-Journals to search articles in-text to find unique resources. 

There are several services that translate journal name abbreviations to full names including All That JAS, Web of Science Journal Title Abbreviations, and Brock Library's A_Z List of Journals (just enter abbreviation - full name will come out if found).

News & Media Databases

News and media databases provide articles on all topics, give opinion, background, quotes, etc. and many times provide unique content not found in other databases to include Canadian magazines, newswire, newspaper, and editorials. Search ProQuest databases CBCA and Canadian Major Dailies separately or together, CPI.Q for unique content, and consult the list of alternate News Databases to search individual newspapers e.g. St. Catharines Standard, historical newspapers e.g. Globe & Mail, New York Times, Time (London), and regional papers. Search LexisNexis and Factiva separately to find regional, Canadian and international real time, fulltext articles.
