Important Tip!

When searching in Ovid and opening full text links, if you wish to return to the search results page, use Ovid's internal navigation links located at the top of each page. Be careful when closing windows or using your browser's "Back" button because this could result in losing your entire search!

Need an article from a journal that the library does not provide access to? Not a problem, we can request a copy of the article be sent from another library using our ILLiad system. Please visit the links below for more information.
