Databases are platforms - reliable sites that will provide documents with high scientific content to be used in your work.
Databases: where to find reliable documents to use in the TCC
Simply put, it's as if you searched for your topic on google, but google would take you to several random sites without scientific proof. It's as if the databases filter and only show you articles, books, manuals... scientific documents for you to use.
Below, I will show you a list of options for you to look for references:
1. Google Scholar
Certainly the best known of all, it is a version of google for the academic world and the world of research, including all areas.
3. Virtual Health Library
The VHL is a library that brings together several databases, so when searching in it, it is as if you were searching in several at the same time (the databases that appear are indicated in the left corner of the screen), it is turned for research in the health area, but also ends up including studies focused on other areas.
PubMed Central and the "Medical Literature Analysis and Retrieval System Online" are databases focused on the health area, but also have studies from other areas.
There are several bases, these are just a few examples.
It is important to consider that in addition to the bases, you can search for works in the universities' repositories, that is, the theses, monographs and dissertations of the students that are available.
