PubMed (AUSP) 2008

  1. 1. PubMed and Other Databases: Audiology/Speech Pathology Kay Cunningham Electronic Resources Librarian Revised: October 20, 2008
  2. 2. From All Databases A-Z list <ul><li>PubMed —medicine, indexes journal articles, 1950-present </li></ul><ul><li>PubMed Central —medicine, archives free life science journals, dates vary </li></ul><ul><li>Entrez —life sciences, metasearches all NCBI databases, dates vary </li></ul><ul><li>CINAHL —nursing/allied health, indexes journals, books, chapters, with fulltext aggregations, 1982-present </li></ul><ul><li>Dissertation Abstracts-- multidisciplinary, indexes and abstracts dissertations (and some theses) in all subjects, 1861- , with abstracts, 1980-present </li></ul><ul><li>ERIC —education, indexes journals, books, chapters, with fulltext ERIC documents (not journals), 1966-present </li></ul><ul><li>Nursing and Allied Health Collection —aggregates fulltext of selected journals, dates vary </li></ul><ul><li>PsycInfo —indexes journals, books, chapters, 1806-present </li></ul><ul><li>PsycArticles —archives APA journals in fulltext, 1985-present </li></ul><ul><li>ScienceDirect —archives Elsevier journals in fulltext, 1995-present </li></ul><ul><li>Web of Knowledge—ISI Science Citation Index, Social Science Citation Index, Journal Citation Report </li></ul><ul><li>WorldCat —union catalog of library holdings (books, dissertations, serials by title), dates vary </li></ul>
  3. 3. Why PubMed? (And not MEDLINE) <ul><li>PubMed contains ALL that’s in MEDLINE, but MEDLINE does not contain all that’s in PubMed </li></ul><ul><li>In addition to MEDLINE, PubMed provides </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ In Process” articles—the most recent 30 days </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Publisher-supplied indexing from selectively-indexed titles—both current and historic </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Out-of-scope articles </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ Old” MedLine (pre-1966) articles </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A Clinical filter </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Interconnectedness with other NCBI databases </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. PubMed —Main page
  5. 5. Details tab Even though you only typed “swallowing disorders,” PubMed automatically searches the relevant MeSH term along with your text words. In addition non-MeSH terms are searched both as words and as phrases.
  6. 6. Results list
  7. 7. Results List: changing from the Summary View Click on the drop-down arrow next to Display Summary and choose the relevant display. Abstract provides the abstracts; AbstractPlus, abstracts and supplemental material.
  8. 8. AbstractPlus display The AbstractPlus View provides links to related articles, links to results in other NCBI databases, links to the publisher site (fulltext is available if the institution has a subscription, and—if you have registered with NCBI—the holdings of the medical library(s) of your choice, in this case UTMemphis.
  9. 9. Basic Search Tips <ul><li>Authors—last name first, at least one initial, no punctuation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Example: Studebaker GA </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Subject/keyword concepts—string in words, no Boolean connectors </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Example: dysphasia children treatment </li></ul></ul>((&quot;aphasia&quot;[TIAB] NOT Medline[SB]) OR &quot;aphasia&quot;[MeSH Terms] OR dysphasia[Text Word]) AND ((&quot;child&quot;[TIAB] NOT Medline[SB]) OR &quot;child&quot;[MeSH Terms] OR children[Text Word]) AND (&quot;therapy&quot;[Subheading] OR (&quot;therapeutics&quot;[TIAB] NOT Medline[SB]) OR &quot;therapeutics&quot;[MeSH Terms] OR treatment[Text Word]) TRANSLATION=
  10. 10. Advanced Search Filters <ul><li>PubMed Services (see Blue Sidebar) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Journals Database </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>MeSH Database </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Single Citation Matcher </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Clinical Queries </li></ul></ul>
  11. 11. Journals <ul><li>Use the Journal Database to search for journals by title </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Abbreviate </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>J Med Ethics </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>or Spell Out </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Journal of Medical Ethics </li></ul></ul></ul>
  12. 12. MeSH (Medline Subject Headings) Note suggestions, subheadings, entry terms, and the broader and narrower terms of the Tree.
  13. 13. Single Citation Matcher <ul><li>Use to verify a partial reference </li></ul><ul><li>Mix and match bibliographic elements </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Author (as first or last) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Year (month/day optional) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Volume </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Issue </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Title words </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Start page </li></ul></ul>
  14. 14. Clinical Queries Use the Clinical Queries filter to limit searches to the areas of etiology, diagnosis, therapy, or prognosis
  15. 15. Advanced Search Tips <ul><li>Limits </li></ul><ul><li>Preview/Index </li></ul><ul><li>History </li></ul>
  16. 16. Limits Limit by language, gender, type of article, age of subject, human or animal, date, availability of abstract, availability of free full text, etc.
  17. 17. Preview/Index—Index Use CTRL-Click to select more than one item in the Index. Click AND to add the selections to the Search Box.
  18. 18. Index Search Fields <ul><li>All fields are indexed and can be searched using the Preview/Index list </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Affiliation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Grant Number </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Text word (use this if you want to search specific phrases that are not MeSH terms) </li></ul></ul>
  19. 19. History <ul><li>Automatically maintained on your computer for 8 hours—even if you close the browser </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Searches can be saved permanently in My NCBI </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Use to combine searches </li></ul><ul><ul><li>AND, OR, NOT </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>#2 AND #3 </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>#5 OR #6 OR #7 </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>#8 NOT #4 </li></ul></ul></ul>Here we combine the search on “electrophysiology” with all variations on “central processing” found in the Index.
  20. 20. New History Features—Recent Activity The Recent Activity box provides easy access to earlier searches. Click on a link to go back to a search.
  21. 21. Some Tips to Remember <ul><li>Speed up things by conducting searches from History or from Preview/Index </li></ul><ul><ul><li>You’ll see the number of results without having to wait for pages to load </li></ul></ul><ul><li>To exclude items (NOT), use the History. First search on the concept you want (#1), then on the concept you don’t want (#2), then </li></ul><ul><ul><li>#1 NOT #2 </li></ul></ul>
  22. 22. Other aspects of PubMed to be aware of…
  23. 23. Interconnectedness <ul><li>PubMed automatically connects to other NCBI databases </li></ul><ul><li>Make these connections by </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Changing the Display, from Summary to whatever </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Clicking the Links (to the right side of the screen in both Summary and Abstract views) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Going to Entrez and cross-searching the entire range of NCBI resources </li></ul></ul>
  24. 24. Entrez: NCBI’s metasearcher
  25. 25. PubMed Central <ul><li>All articles in PMC are free, but </li></ul><ul><li>Only some journals are represented </li></ul><ul><li>Publishers may deposit journals in PMC, with or without allowing immediate access; some are embargo’d </li></ul><ul><li>Researchers using NIH funding deposit MS versions of their articles in PMC </li></ul><ul><li>It is not necessary to search PMC and PubMed separately; all items in PMC will be retrieved in a PubMed search </li></ul>
  26. 26. BookShelf <ul><li>Search directly through the Bookshelf </li></ul><ul><li>OR </li></ul><ul><li>Activate book links in PubMed abstracts (the linked words in the activated abstracts are automatically run as searches in the Bookshelf collection) </li></ul>
  27. 27. OMIM: Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man --fulltext summaries of genetic disorders
  28. 28. My NCBI—Registration and Personalization <ul><li>Save complex searches to run later </li></ul><ul><li>Schedule automatic updates for saved searches </li></ul><ul><li>Set up to 5 permanent filters or limits (English language only, review articles, etc.) </li></ul><ul><li>Show holdings from selected medical libraries, like UT or Vanderbilt </li></ul><ul><li>Save citations </li></ul>
  29. 29. My NCBI If you use the same computer for your searches, you can stay permanently logged-in to My NCBI.
  30. 30. Be Aware <ul><li>PubMed’s open access nature makes it free to all and available through any Internet connection. Because of this, the UofM (as a non-medical library) cannot make modifications to the interface to show its holdings or make it interconnect with other UofM licensed databases (like CINAHL, or PsycInfo). </li></ul>
