This resource focuses on English language scholarly journals covering aspects of health and social care from a broadly social scientific perspective. Coverage is relevant to the caring professions, including practitioners, researchers, and students in healthcare, social services, education, and related areas. As with all databases on the ProQuest platform, there is a basic search and an advanced search with plenty of functionality and limiters. You may search in multiple fields at once including abstract, author, text, title, publication, and subject heading, and limit to source types, document types, language, and publication date. Laurier Library provides access to this through our subscription to the Sociology Collection.
