The Research Toolkit provides resources and guidance to emerging and established researchers conducting research at Monash Health.

The Toolkit offers online research guidance, from literature searching to survey tools and research data management (RDM). It also covers researcher tools such as altmetrics, social media and researcher profiles; complying with medical ethics, law and copyright; and publishing resources for open access, open data and avoiding predatory journals.

Research Toolkit




The Lowitja Institute has developed an online tool called LIt.Search that uses pre-built search filters in PubMed. These filters easily find literature on Indigenous Health topics or Indigenous Health generally. You can also use the tool to add keywords, dates, and search for free full-text.

A research consultation is a one-on-one appointment with a Monash Health librarian for guidance on how to search systematically and incorporate advanced search strategies in your research. Prior to your consultation we will review your research question. We will then meet with you (virtually or in person) to provide in-depth guidance on topics such as:

  • Formulating a clinical question using the PICO framework.
  • Developing a reproducible and targeted search strategy.
  • Which databases to search for your question.
  • Selecting resources and obtaining the full text.

Please note that research consultations must be booked at least one week in advance.
