Radiation Therapy: Journal Articles

Finding journal articles

To search for journal articles on a specific topic, choose a database from the Databases box below. Searching one of these databases will allow you to find articles from a variety of different journals. The MeSH box will give you information on how to perform a more powerful search. The Journals box lists some of the most important journals in the field. You can browse these journals to learn about the latest studies, but for research on a specific topic, you should search one of the databases instead.

Don't pay for articles. If you find an article record in a database and receive a message saying you need to pay to read the full article, contact the LRC and we will try to obtain a copy for you for free.


By searching one of these databases, you will be searching articles from thousands of journals. More information is available at LRC Services.
