  • How would you search for answers?
    Ask the audience
    Ask a friend
    Flip through a textbook
    Google it up!
    Search the literature
  • It depends on the question!
    How do I look like in the pictures in the newspapers? Friends & Audience
    Where to download the latest song? Google
    What is the blood supply to the tongue? Textbook
    What are the effects of soft drinks on tooth decay? Journals

  • What’s wrong with textbooks?
    Excellent for the principles & basic knowledge
    Usually single authored chapters
    Likely biased, author’s opinion
    Not peer-reviewed
    Outdated (at least 4 years)  except the frequently updated online books (not PDF eBooks)
  • What’s wrong with googling?
  • What’s wrong with googling?

  • Satisficing
    ‘‘where busy clinicians will be satisfied with the information they can readily summon, while sacrificing quality for convenience”
    كبب وليّس ، يطلع كويس
    Carter BS, Leuthner S. Decision making in the NICU—strategies, statistics and ‘‘satisficing.’’ Bioethics Forum. 2002;18:7–15.
  • Before we start searching,
    What are the differences between articles & books?
    Are all articles good? Are all journals good?
    How does an article look like?
    24
  • How does an article look like?
    25
  • 26
    Journal Name, Volume, Issue, Pages
    Article Title
    Authors & Contact Info
    Abstract
    When you search by keywords, you search in these areas
  • When you search by keywords
    Read the article titles  If relevant, read the abstract
    If you read the abstract & it’s relevant  get the full text
    27
  • How does a full text article look like?
    Same information as abstract, PLUS
    Introduction
    Methods
    Results
    Discussion
    References
    28
  • Where are articles stored?
    Articles are published in Journals
    Journals are published by Publishers
    Journals are indexed by Databases (e.g., MEDLINE, EMBASE)
    Instead of going to each publisher website & look for articles, you search for articles in a database
    There are many companies/websites that searches a database (e.g., Medline): PubMed, OVID
    29
  • Just like Milk
    Low fat, Skimmed, and Flavored Milk (articles)
    Almarai, Alsafi, and Nadek (Journals) are produced by different companies (publishers)
    You can buy the milk from the company (publisher)
    Or you can search for the milk in Supermarket “HyperPanda” or the Convenient Store “Bigala” next door (Database)
