Top Research Databases for Environmental Health & Development

Use one or more of these databases to find articles and other material relevant to research on environmental health and development, including the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

The Sustainable Development Goals Research Guides (from the UN) can help point you to goal-specific articles, reports, etc. 

Environmental health and development are multidisciplinary subject areas and you may need to explore more than one database. If you are unsure which database(s) to use, please ask a librarian.
