The RCC is pleased to announce the launch of the new Discovery Service

Keeping up to date with published research and other information is now much easier for RCC members with the launch of the RCC Discovery Service. Similar to PubMed, but with much wider coverage, this online system allows RCC members to search a huge array of journals, books and databases in one place.

Abstracts can be viewed for any article among the many thousands of indexed publications, but the service also provides access to some 1,200+ full-text publications, including many subscription journals that are of direct interest to chiropractors (an alphabetical list of full-text resources that can be accessed via the RCC Discovery Service is available to view here.)

The RCC Discovery Service is accessed via a secure page on the RCC website, so visit rcc-uk.org, log in with your usual details and click the RCC Discovery Service link. A direct route to the link is also provided here.

Once you have launched the service, you can use the various controls to refine your search, or choose ‘start new search’ to be taken to the main landing page which includes handy links to popular searches.
