A Research Guide to the Health Sciences : Medical, Nutritional, and Environmental

More than simply an annotated bibliography, this comprehensive guide is designed to evaluate the sources included so that readers can easily determine those sources most useful for their current needs. The organization of the book–a section on general works followed by three sections organized by broad subject topic and subdivided by formats–will make this especially useful to those conducting research outside their area of specialty. Throughout, the emphasis has been to inform the reader of the type and depth of information to be found in any source included so that each can be effectively weighed against the other available literature.
