A-Z List: All Library Databases
Our online chat service is available 24/7 and is designed to support the CSI community needing assistance with research and other curricular issues. If a CUNY librarian is not available, an academic librarian from one of our partner libraries will assist you.
OneSearch allows you to search for books, articles from journals, magazines, and newspapers, streaming video and DVDs (media), or to search across all of our resources in one place.
If you know the name of the database you are looking for, choose it from the following list:

Search the Library's Frequently Asked Questions:
Critique of a Research Article (assignment from the course)
Identify your interested clinical problem (e.g., diagnostic or therapeutic problem). Find a peer-reviewed article targeting your interested problem and proposing a pioneer methodology applied in PT field (e.g., modified or novel intervention, equipment, evaluation etc.). The article should be recently published in a scientific journal (within the past 3 years).
(Note from your instructor: No review article, no case study, but study with experiments-based research with statistics results).
You'll be writing your group project proposal and literature review, so it's helpful to read a few Cochrane Reviews and Cochrane Protocols from The Cochrane Library. Cochrane Reviews are systematic reviews, the gold standard in evidence-based health care. Hopefully you'll be inspired as you start to think about your research project, write your research proposal, and later conduct your research and complete your project.
