  • 9. Types of Research Literature
  • 10. How to Distinguish Between Primary• Secondary• Tertiary•
  • 11. Primary Sources• Source material that is closest to the original research.• A source with direct personal knowledge of the events being described. It serves as an original source of information about the topic. A person with direct knowledge of a situation, or a document created by such a person.• E.G. Case Reports, Clinical Trials, Original reporting articles…1st person
  • 12. Secondary Sources• Cite, comment on, or build upon primary sources.• Involve generalization, analysis, synthesis, interpretation, or evaluation of the original information. If an article discusses old documents to derive a new conclusion, it is considered to be a primary source for the new conclusion• E.G. Review Articles, meta-analysis [most peer review articles report new findings and thus are considered primary resources]
  • 13. Tertiary Sources• More peripheral• Bibliographies, library catalogs, directories, reading lists and survey articles.• Compilation of data…E.G. Red Book, PDR, Martindale Extra Pharmacopeia• Longer lead time in publishing..years rather than months

  • 17. Citation Searching
  • 18. Citation Searching Assumed subject relevancy between the original paper and the references that paper citese.g. Drug-resistant malaria by Hyde JE in TRENDS INPARASITOLOGY Volume: 21 Issue: 11 Pages: 494-498 Published: NOV 2005 – If we look up the list of references at the end of Hyde’s article they may be useful --but the problem is that they will all be older than 2005….. And I want current articles on the topic? – So I can look for articles since 1985 who “cited” Hyde’s article by doing a “citation search” – And we find the latest article was published in July 2012
  • 19. Citation Searching Traditional Search Citation Search 2011 2010 2010 1984 1998 2008 1984 1980 1975 19701963
