Databases are a quick and efficient means of finding journal articles on a given topic. You can find some of the key databases for nursing and midwifery listed in the box to the right. Monash will not have all the items listed in these databases. You will often need to use the Check for full text link provided in most databases to see if Monash holds a particular journal article, or you can also search for the journal name (not the article title) in the catalogue under Advanced search (set Material type to Journals and search by title).

Journals are also referred to as serials, periodicals, magazines or newspapers and contain more up-to-date and subject specific information than books. Many journals are available electronically, but photocopies of articles held in print at other campuses may be requested via the document delivery service.
Examples of some specific journals are shown below
