Resource Spotlight: CABI Global Health Database

Posted by on February 7th, 2022 Posted in: Blog

The PHDL makes available the Global Health database of full-text research and citations focusing on public health topics with a global scope. CABI Logo

Medical and health research is indexed from over 7,000 journals.  You can find research content from publications not indexed in PubMed including journal articles, reports, conference proceedings, book chapters, policy documents, theses, and other hard-to-find sources. Global Health contains over 14 million records from over 100 countries in 50 languages, most abstracted in English.

The Global Health database is searchable through CAB Direct, the interface for browsing and searching through topics, authors, and journal titles.  Like My NBCI on PubMed, a My CABI feature allows for saving searches and journal alerts from specific topics and journal titles.

CABI Search Box

Keyword searching looks through all indexed fields in the database’s record: title, author, abstract. All fields.  Search filters  help you narrow your search results.  For CAB Direct use quotations for phrases: e.g., “antibiotic resistance”, “otitis media”.

Advanced searching allows you to build a search combining phrases and narrowing your search to most useful fields in the record (e.g. article title, author name, publisher, date, etc.)

You can also explore your topics browsing through Global Health’s collection of 200 full-text journals of international research publications: use the Browse All Content tab.

The Quick Guide to Searching Global Health will help you work through searching Global Health on CAB Direct.

You can access the Global Health database from your PHDL page  clicking  on  CABI  logo.  PHDL Page Hilighting CABI
