Animals in Research: Searching Alternatives : Databases

Duke Databases

You are required to search at least TWO relevant databases. 

These are databases that Duke has a paid subscription for faculty, staff, and students to use. All of these databases will have 'Get it at Duke' links to make obtaining access to articles you find when searching them easy.

AWIC Training

In 2014, AWIC trainers visited Duke and held several training sessions on Meeting the Information Requirements of the Animal Welfare Act.

Slides from the training are available here.  A set of additional slides are available here.

Freely Available Databases

These databases are freely available and most are specifically designed for searching for animal alternatives.
