The purpose of this chart is to provide some general information about several top point-of-care resources in the medical field. This information should not be considered complete. I do not endorse any particular POC resources. The information gathered here by a literature review. Those articles published by medical expert which used bibliometric analysis are included. The articles which their methodology were solely based on user-centred analysis (i.e. medical community survey about the popularity of particular tools) are excluded to minimize risk of bias. If information about particular aspect of a POC was not obtained from the literature review, the editorial policy from their perspective website was cited. Please feel free to send me your feedback ntorabi at uwo.ca
