The results of literature searches should include the following information:
- The databases and other sources used, and dates of access. If possible, use databases which generate unique URLs (web addresses) every time a search is performed, such as here on the Norecopa website. This facilitates repetition, documentation and evaluation of the search.
- The keywords and search components used.
- The information centres consulted.
The Norecopa website contains links to over 70 databases.
Many more links to specific guidance on literature searching, databases and systematic reviews are available in a separate section of this website.
- Database searches and resources for non-animal methods (a presentation by Michelle Hudson-Shore, FRAME)
- TextBase: a database of textbooks and other literature within Laboratory Animal Science and related topics
