Epidemiology & Biostatistics


Welcome to the library guide for Epidemiology, Biostatistics, and Occupational Health

This guide provides a sampling of resources available to you through the McGill Libraries. If you are having trouble finding something, please feel free to reach out to me by email at or by booking an appointment. I am happy to assist with specific goals such as starting and completing a review. 

If you can't find the full text of an article, if you have followed the suggested steps on finding full text page, please feel free to use our Interlibrary Loan Service. If a book is not available at McGill, you may also be able to borrow it in person at participating Quebec university libraries using your McGill ID card, or you can request that it be delivered to one of our branches.

If our collection is missing an item that you think we should have, please feel free to suggest a purchase or to reach me directly via email to see if we can acquire it.

Citing your sources

If you are collecting references for a project, looking for information on how to cite within a particular discipline, or interested in using software to collect and automatically format your in-text citations and bibliography in the proper citation style, the following pages may be of use:

  • Citation Guides - General information on citation as well as information on what's available at McGill (for example, EndNote, which is free for McGill staff and students, and Zotero, which we support) and how to get more information
  • Life Sciences Citation Style - Information on citing in Vancouver (author-number system), APA (author-date style), CSE
  • Citation Styles - Useful citation guides for other commonly used citation styles
  • Citation Styles by Subject

If you are writing a paper for a course, ask your professors what citation style they recommend. If you are publishing a journal article in the health sciences, consult the instructions for authors database or the journal website to find out what citation style they require your references to be formatted in.
