Journals in OVID SP
Journals@Ovid Full text
The database is an aggregate of hundreds of scientific, technical, and medical journals from over 50 publishers and societies .
YourJournals@Ovid is a subset of the larger Journals@Ovid database that is limited to only the journals to which your institution subscribes , for when a user wants to see only the citations to which they have access. It provides all of the basic functionality of Journals@Ovid, including 100% search ability, seamless integration with databases, and the ability to browse by journal and by subject.
Searching from multiple resources simultaneously we can’t search for subject headings!
Simply enter a search term or ask a question in ordinary, everyday English terms
OvidSP filters the terms of your query, eliminating irrelevant noise words and tightening word choices into validated search terms and phrases.
OvidSP utilizes a proprietary medical lexicon to expand validated terms
Some useful practices :
Don’t use unnecessary adjectives.
Don’t use question mark, hyphen, bracket .. .
Don’t use Boolean operators for combining records
Expect approximately 500 relevancy-ranked results !
Advanced Ovid Search
We can search for keyword , author, title or journal in a traditional way.
Using Boolean operators we can specify our searching.
For receiving more relevant results use your query as Subject Heading . It is only available when you choose only one database .
Basic Search and Advanced Ovid Search
- It is a natural language search. Enter your search terms in plain English .
- It is NOT a simple version of Advanced Search !!!
Advanced Ovid Search
- It is equivalent to the traditional Advanced Search!!!
OvidSP's Find Citation tab lets you submit fielded data to retrieve specific journal article citations.
Search Tools OvidSP provides tools that let you discover more about the relationship between terms and subjects within the context of the database in which you are searching.
Apply fields to a search statement (or field a search ) and restrict OvidSP's search to only the text of the fields indicated.
Additional search fields can be typed on text boxes, along with drop-down lists that specify the field to search for each text box, and drop-down lists specifying whether to AND or OR the text boxes together.
Searching methods! Which one we choose?
Basic Search – some relevant results
Find Citation – particular article with some bibliographic data
Search Tools – to discover more about the relationship between terms and subjects within the context of the database in which you are searching.
Search Fields – to apply fields to a search statement (or field a search ) and restrict OvidSP's search to only the text of the fields indicated.
