Literature searches can be performed on a
variety of topics ranging from chiropractic to other health-related
disciplines. Searches will be performed using the most appropriate
databases. The results will be comprised of a bibliography of relevant
citations based on the subject matter you specify and are subject to
limitations of the databases searched.
*It is important to note that literature searches will not contain the full-text of journal articles. It will contain references (often abstracts) to the full-text, giving you enough information to find it full-text in a library.
