Databases for Speech and Language Therapy

Databases are collections of useful information. This might be journal articles, maps, videos, sounds, case histories, references, abstracts or almost anything else you can think of. Most databases are constantly updated with new information, and are often a great way of keeping up-to-date and discovering the newest research for your subject area. Both Canterbury Christ Church University and the University of Greenwich subscribe to a range of databases which are intended to support students in their learning and research.

  • Canterbury Christ Church University - resources are provided through LibrarySearch. To access individual databases click "Find Databases" then search by keyword, or click on the letter which the database's name begins with. Key databases include ASSIA (social sciences), British Education Index, CINAHL (nursing and allied health), MLA International Bibliography (language/linguistics) and ScienceDirect.
  • University of Greenwich students can access a list of e-services (databases, journals and e-books) from the Student Portal's Library and Computing tab. Key databases include Medline, PsycInfo, the Psychology and Behavioural Sciences Collection and ScienceDirect. With the exception of ScienceDirect, these are all provided by EBSCO, and can be searched simultaneously by selecting the EBSCOhost link and choosing the Health Sciences Research Databases option.
  • Both institutions provide access to the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, a very valuable resource which provides access to systematic reviews of healthcare interventions. It is regularly updated and covers every health discipline, including Speech and Language Therapy.
  • Pubmed is a free database covering biomedicine and related disciplines. Some of the articles on here are available in full-text format due to the service's US government funding, and it is worth checking to see whether other articles located via this service are from journals which either CCCU or Greenwich subscribes to.
