Ovid is a specialist search tool available to St George’s, University of London staff and students. It allows you to perform sophisticated literature searches in databases such as Medline, Embase, PsycInfo, Maternity and Infant Care and Global Health. Where available, your Subject Guide will tell you which databases are most relevant to your topic.
It is best to plan your search and identify suitable search terms before using the database. For guidance on how to plan a search, please see the LibGuide Principles of Effective Literature Searching.
Although this guide is predominately aimed at SGUL staff and students, NHS staff also have access to Medline, PsycINFO and Embase through the Ovid platform - login with your NHS OpenAthens account for access.
