How Do I Perform Searches for My IACUC Protocol?

Databases that search Medline (use only one of these)

Google Scholar

  • Google Scholar is not recommended for searches for alternatives for USDA animals as the search is not replicable. 
  • When using PubMed, Google Scholar does not qualify as a second database. This is because Google Scholar indexes PubMed records. 
  • If choosing between PubMed and Google Scholar, PubMed is the recommended database.
