 *Core coverage refers to sources which will be indexed and abstracted in their entirety (i.e. cover to cover), while "priority" coverage refers to sources from which we will include only those articles which are relevant to the field.

**Priority sources often contain a substantial amount of quality content relevant to the subjects, but also contain a number of articles covering topics not related to the field of study.
