Try out the Social Policy and Practice database
We have been given a two month trial of Social Policy and Practice, a specialist database offering one-stop access to evidence-based research information drawn from five key organisations:
• Centre for Policy on Ageing
• Greater London Authority
• Idox information service
• National Children’s Bureau
• Social Care Institute for Excellence
The database contains over 300,000 abstracts and records of journal articles, books and research reports covering social policy, public health, social services and mental and community health.
