Public Health databases

Public Health is an interdisciplinary field touching on a wide range of subject areas. This intersectionality means when you do research you won't always search in the same databases.

Below are databases organized by three disciplines that frequently intersect with public health. Databases labeled "Best Bet" will be the most useful for you as they contain content specific to public health.

Public Health - Medicine and Epidemiology

Public Health - Policy and Public Affairs

Public Health - Social Sciences

Public Health eJournals

Some public health journals are available for free online, indicated with an OPEN ACCESS icon. Others require you to sign in with your Clackamas username and password.

Request articles, book chapters, and books through Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

Google Scholar

Google Scholar lets you cast a wide net into every discipline of research. Go ahead and use Google Scholar, but remember - never pay for an article online. Get it for free, through CCC Library's Interlibrary loan (ILL) service.

To request an article, first double-check that the article is not available from another database. The CCC Library Catalog is a good place to check!

Once you have determined it is not available at CCC, please fill out our Interlibrary Loan form (below) or contact Articles will be emailed to you in 1-4 days.
