The journals that we feature on this page are available through Alvernia's Library. This is just a sampling of journals in the subject area; there are many more journals in most subjects. We feature peer-reviewed journals when possible.
Each link connects to the main landing page for the journal. Use the "Search within this Publication" link to look for articles in the journal that include your topic keyword(s). On the right side of most landing pages, you can browse the journal by year and volume. This is useful if you are looking for a specific article from the publication and know the article's publication date.
Ask a Librarian if you need help! Librarians are available in person, over chat, virtually by appointment, or at email@example.com.

So what are these MeSH, CINAHL terms???
Learn how using MeSH terms will make your search more efficient & effective:
"A systematic review attempts to identify, appraise and synthesize all the empirical evidence that meets pre-specified eligibility criteria to answer a given research question" (The Cochrane Library)
Meta analysis is "a statistical synthesis of the numerical results of several trials which all address the same question" (Greenhalgh, 2010, p.121).
Both types of reviews provide a very high level of evidence.
