MEDLINE 1996 - present & In-process (Ovid) : MEDLINE provides authoritative medical information on medicine, nursing, dentistry, veterinary medicine, the health care system, pre-clinical sciences, and much more.This covers only 1996 forward but the great majority of SRs have been published since then.
PubMed: PubMed comprises more than 26 million citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books. Citations may include links to full-text content from PubMed Central and publisher web sites. PubMed is free, but by using this link you will have the best access to the full text of articles that you find. Medline and PubMed are nearly identical; the biggest difference is in HOW you search!
PsycINFO 1967 to present (Ovid): Contains citations and summaries of journal articles, book chapters, books, and technical reports in the field of psychology and psychological aspects of related disciplines including medicine, psychiatry, nursing, sociology, education, pharmacology, physiology, linguistics, anthropology, business, and law. If you are doing behavioral research, start with either Medline or PubMed, but PsycINFO is a must as it covers the psychological research.
CINAHL Plus with Full Text : Covers nursing, biomedicine, alternative/complementary medicine, consumer health and 17 allied health disciplines. Can limit to systematic reviews by using the drop down menu next to Publication Type.
PubMed Clinical Queries: A specialized PubMed search interface that affords an easier, more focused access to clinical studies, systematic reviews and medical genetics information.
There are several sites with systematic review databases. Many of these are indexed in Medline/PubMed. If you have not checked there first, do so! Search these sites to make sure, especially PROSPERO as it is a registry of SR protocols.
ClinicalTrials.gov: Registers trials that are recruting and reports which have been completed. It also has results for many studies. Since a majority of the trials in this registry are never published, you'll need to search here if you're looking or clinical trial data.
WHO International Clinical Trials Registry Platform: This is a meta-site; multiple national registries meet the standards established by the WHO ICTRP (including ClinicalTrials.gov).
Here is a very generic literature search tracking log but other universities have developed templates to help with the documentation process:
