A common question is: “How do I find environmental articles from journals that are not in PubMed?”

One good resource to try is GreenFILE, a free database from EBSCO, which includes citations in the environmental sciences including: ecology, environmental health, environmental planning, environmental chemistry, environmental law, and related disciplines. EBSCO states, “Drawing on the connection between the environment and disciplines such as agriculture, education, law, health and technology, GreenFILE will serve as an informative resource for anyone concerned about the issues facing our planet.” GreenFILE provides indexing access to both general interest and scholarly titles, along with
government reports and other documents.

GreenFILE is available at and is linked from the Public Health Library’s OEHHA home page under “Key Resources”.
