Databases vary by the type and number of records they contain, dates of coverage, the formats of literature they consider (i.e., chapters, articles, proceedings), and the scope. Select the databases according to the study and particular question being asked.
You are required to search in more than one database.
Most researchers start with PubMed or another broadly inclusive database (ie, ScienceDIrect, Web of Science, Biosis). Your additional databases can be a second biomedical research database, or focus on a specific aspect of the protocol design, the animal model, or the 3Rs.
Public Access databases that contain materials specifically relevant to reduction, refinement, and replacement.
Public Access databases do not require a subscription or VPN access and are freely available.
