    • 3. Getting started... • myUniHub > My Study > My Library • Library Subject Guide for Biomedical Sciences: http://libguides.mdx.ac.uk/biomedicalsciences
    • 4. Finding a specific journal article • If you have a reference to a specific journal article, find it by searching the Library Catalogue for the journal title. • Use the A-Z search, Journal A-Z:
    • 5. Google Scholar • Freely available to search • Tip: set the Library Links so you can access MDX full text (Settings > Library Links) • What’s included? – There is no definitive list, so be aware you may miss things.
    • 6. Key Databases For BMS Literature • Medline • PubMed • Web of Science (Science Citation Index) • Science Direct Database of international biomedical literature … + some full text Leading science & technical journals Full-text science journals
    • 7. Principles of literature searching • Define your question – what do you want to know? What’s the topic? • Identify significant keywords • Identify related terms • Identify broader and narrower concepts • Watch out for spelling & terminology, e.g. UK/US, abbreviations
    • 8. Search tips • Narrow search e.g. tetanus AND vaccine • Widen search e.g. Vaccination OR immunization • Exclude words e.g. clostridium NOT difficile • Search for phrases e.g. “Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus” (remember abbreviations, e.g. MRSA) • Broaden search e.g. Vaccin* (finds vaccine, vaccination, vaccinated etc) • Find different spellings e.g. Immuni?ation (finds immunisation and immunization)
    • 9. Searching the databases Over to you... • Medline • Science Direct • Web of Science (Science Citation Index) Look for full text via the library catalogue if necessary
