Where do I start?

I am after some really basic pharmacy information?

Where and how do I find good articles?

How do I get access to eBooks?

I am after some general pharmacy sites (such as government organisations)?



Referencing Online Drug Information

The best way to reference a page from an online database such as MIMS, AMH or Nursing Consult is to treat it like a webpage with no author.

Reference in the body of your essay

In the body of your essay you would cite the article as (Title of webpage, year of last update). For example:

... children under the age of three years should be given a reduced dose (Panadol, 2009). 

Reference list

Title of webpage (year of last update or copyright year) Retrieved access date, access year, from URL 

For example, a page on Panadol from MIMS would look like:

Panadol (2009) Retrieved July 28, 2012, from

The same example from AMH would look like:

Panadol (2009) Retrieved July 28, 2012, from

Example for QUT APA - Journal articles - MIMS drug database Show


  Adverse drug reactions reported with Keflex are very rare but may include dizziness and headache (MIMS, 2010). 

Reference List

MIMS. (2010). Keflex. Retrieved June 23, 2010, from

Note:  Date in brackets is the MIMS revision date.
