Breast Cancer Review

Scientific Journals

If you are looking for true scientific information, medical journals on breast cancer are the authoritative source. There is a listing of journals below that can be a starting place for you.

If you are lucky, you can access an academic library where these journals are available in hard copy. With the help of the library computer, you will be able to find recent articles in these journals on breast cancer. Academic libraries are found at public and private universities in large metropolitan areas. Talking with the research librarians will help in your search.

If you don’t live in a metropolitan area, your local library or possibly group of libraries (with which yours may be affiliated) may have a subscription database that they bought as a group which provides access to these journals and their articles also. The availability of these databases varies from town to town. You will need to call your library to find if they have this service.

Some states now have large library systems, like the one in Georgia called Galileo. This is an online interconnected library system that is available through computers to residents of Georgia. For example, Galileo provides the complete text of articles from over 5000 journals that are in libraries located throughout the State of Georgia. You would be able to read articles in journals on breast cancer and related subjects, as you need. Again, information about this is gained by calling your local library.
