ClinicalKey is a database for healthcare professionals and students of medical sciences. It is a source of the latest facts and information from various specializations of medicine and health sciences.

  • “Gray Anatomy”
  • Goldman’s “Cecil Medicine”

We recommend you to to set up a free individual account in the ClinicalKey database, which allows you to use additional functionalities of the platform, including setting alerts for favorite queries and creating your own resource library. Without logging into your individual user account, you will still be able to download the texts of journal articles, but not book chapters! To use all the functionalities of ClinicalKey, all you need is one account for all Elsevier platforms, for example Scopus.
