A Note about Science Databases

Science and Medicine databases are international by nature and favor English as a common language. 

Databases have funtionalities that allow a researcher to identify research in French or from France or any other particular country. The databases below allow researchers to

  • create a list of journals by country of origin
  • search by address of the institution of the researcher 
  • limit search results to "Language: French"

The databases below have been selected from the general list of Global Health Databases because they offer a lot of French Language Content. 

The Medical Center offers online tutorials and tip sheets for searching science databases; if you need help contact a science librarian.
