The University offers a wide range of academic databases that are suitable to undertake your systematic review. For example, if you are a health student you may like to explore CINAHL or British Nursing Database, or if you are a Psychology student, PsycARTICLES and Proquest Psychology Datase would be suitable. You can access these from our A-Z of e-Journals. Using, a Discovery tool, such as Summon is not suitable for the structured approach that needs to be undertaken when undertaking a Systematic Review.
