Databases for Nutrition, Agriculture and Food research

Where to start?  You might start with Web of Science, below, since it's a very large, interdisciplinary database.  However, you may need to search your topic across several databases depending on the interdisciplinary nature of your topic.  Or try CINAHL and add other databases to your search under CHOOSE DATABASES once you're logged in to run keyword searches across several databases that are relevant to your topic. Use PsycInfo for research having to do with human behaviors.
