  10. 10. How to Distinguish Between Primary• Secondary• Tertiary•
  11. 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. 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. 13. Tertiary Sources• More peripheral• Bibliographies, library catalogs, directories, reading lists and survey articles.• Compilation of data…• Longer lead time in publishing..years rather than months

  17. 17. Citation Searching
  18. 18. Citation Searching Assumed subject relevancy between the original paper and the references that paper citese.g. Palinopsia by Bender, M.B. in Brain Volume: 91 Issue: 2 Pages: 321-338 Published: June 1968 – If we look up the list of references at the end of Charbardes article they may be useful --but the problem is that they will all be older than 1968….. And I want current articles on the topic? – So I can look for articles since 1968 who “cited” this article by doing a “citation search” – And we find the latest article was published in March 2013
  19. 19. Citation Searching Traditional Search Citation Search 2011 2010 2013 2010 2009 1968 19681960 1963 1959 1954
