EBSCOhost is an online information database of journals and scholarly articles and is used primarily for research. EBSCOhost is used almost exclusively by colleges, corporations and other large businesses, as the cost is prohibitive for individuals.
EBSCOhost provides academic and professional articles to tens of thousands of organizations. These articles include clinical information, doctoral dissertations, e-books, scholarly journals and magazines. The database also features a comprehensive search algorithm, which allows users to search for specific articles easily. EBSCOhost stores each article on its own and does not organize, edit or interpret information. Because of this, the database is generally only used to perform research in an academic or professional setting.
