Searching Systematically - useful databases and evidence resources: Home

Comprehensive list of resources to use when undergoing a systematic searching

A comprehensive literature search should at a minimum include:

  • 1 point-of-care evidence synthesis tool

  • Embase

  • 1 other core database


We tried to be as comprehensive as we could but of course there are many more resources available depending on your research topic.  

For resources listed in the grey literature tab, some content might require a membership or subscription which the NHLKS does not provide.
