If you have a citation to an article from a CAM, medical or law journal NOT listed above and you want to find out if it is available electronically to the Georgetown community, you can search the journal title on E-Journal Finder. Bear in mind journals available through the Medical Library or the Main Library are not accessible to law students off-campus. If you cannot find your journal on either E-Journal Finder or GULLiver (the Law Library catalog), request the article through Interlibrary loan.
The journal listing below only lists a handful of journals that publish articles on CAM issues. If you want to be more comprehensive, you should also search the following medical databases, legal indexes and policy study databases (some give you only citations or abstracts, others are full-text databases). The Using Articles for Legal and Non-Legal Research Guide explains clearly the differences between searching indexes and full-text databases.

Fontanarosa ed., 2000) [R733 .A45 2000] collects in one volume articles published in the 1998 alternative medicine theme issues of JAMA and the Archives Journals, as well as articles published in these journals within the previous or subsequent year.
