Objectives
The Emerging Technologies Team, part of the MLA systematic review projects, was
seeking a replicable and authoritative methodology to mine PubMed for emerging
technologies relevant to health and medical librarians, and to create a methodology
to empower librarians to perform this task more easily in the future. Ideally, the
findings should reflect the range and diversity of health and medical librarians, their
workplaces, resources, and supported communities.
Organizations working in this space, such as the Gartner Group and the New Media
Consortium (Horizon Report), either have no formal methodology or do not publicly
share their strategy. Thus, it was necessary to create and document a methodology
for this purpose that can be used by MLA now and in the future.
Methods
Journal Selection Process (Flow Chart)
Emerging technologies are constantly evolving. Identifying relevant journals focused
on healthcare technologies will assist in the discovery of novel or previously
undiscovered technology terms through the text-mining process.
Term Selection Process: Emerging
Beginning with the emerging technologies search filter developed by Varela-Lema et
al, the team explored truncation, term mappings, and related terms. Alternate search
strategies were developed by four volunteers from the team. The complete team
compared, tested sensitivity and specificity of individual terms as well as [TI] vs
[TIAB] searching to achieve consensus on search terms and processes.
Using the MeSH browser, relevant structured vocabulary terms were identified as
possibilities to include in the search strategy. These terms were assigned by primary
content focus to the clusters of “emerging” or “technologies” or both, with attention
given to terms included by explosion of a higher level term.
Next Steps & Recommendations
The master search strategy has been designed in three versions (broad, narrow, and
standard), which will be tested with filters on specific topics such as the human body,
public health, education / communication, and libraries / publication. The search results
will be reduced to a text dataset comprised of titles and abstracts, to which text mining
will be applied to identify conceptual “hot spots.”
For future iterations of this project, we recommend developing teams of medical
librarians partnered with engineers, computer scientists, or related fields, and
searching the engineering literature in addition to the medical literature.

The creation of a search strategy involved identifying appropriate free text and MeSH
terms for three concept groups (emerging technologies, emerging, and technology),
and then testing these individually and in combination for sensitivity and specificity.
Specific journal titles with high specificity for the topic were hand selected for each
concept group. Inclusion/exclusion criteria were identified for the level of specificity
required for terms and titles. Concept groups were combined as: [“Emerging
Technologies” OR (Emerging AND Technologies)]. The search is limited to the most
recent 1-3 years and English language. The language limit is to avoid the challenges
of trying to apply text mining across multiple languages whose terms may not be
equivalent.

MLASR6 https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/115832551443909297773
The Medical Library Association initiated a large systematic review project to assess the
level of evidence available to support the profession and practice of medical librarianship in
several very important questions. Team 6 has been assigned to explore this topic:
The explosion of information, expanding of technology (especially mobile technology), and
complexity of healthcare environment present medical librarians and medical libraries
opportunities and challenges. To live up with the opportunities and challenges, what kinds
of skill sets or information structure do medical librarians or medical libraries are required to
have or acquire so as to be strong partners or contributors of continuing effectiveness to the
changing environment?
Journals selected from NLM Catalog were based on searching relevant terms from
subgroups and emerging technologies base search. IEEE and ACM titles were added to
the journal list; table of contents were scanned for prior 3 issues or years for the inclusion
and exclusion criteria. Titles screened: 157. Titles excluded: 137. Titles retained: 20.
The same method was applied to technologies term selection. Here, certain terms
from the original search strategy were determined to not add value to the results, and
were excluded.
Special Circumstances
Emerging technologies
Unlike most of the other MLASR teams, we are not actually doing a systematic
review, and a systematic review methodology would be inappropriate for our topic.
The systematic review methodology is designed to look backwards in time,
compiling the best of the research on that topic. For emerging technologies, we
need to look to the future, rather than the past. This temporal context created
challenges which influenced every part of the project. It was made more difficult by
the fact that, while there are many think tanks which provide lists of significant
emerging technologies, none of them have or share a replicable methodology for
how they arrive at their conclusions, forcing us to attempt to create and document
one ourselves.
Text-mining
The search strategy has been developed not for the purpose of creating a data set
of citations to evaluate as relevant or not, but rather for the purpose of creating a
data set of title and abstract terms, a kind of concordance, to be analysed with text-
mining in an attempt to identify ‘hot spots’ or emerging concepts of significance. This
means inclusion/exclusion criteria relate not to the characteristics of the resulting
citation set, but rather to the purpose of developing a text file which is clearly on
emerging technologies and not muddied by other concepts, however interesting
those concepts might be.

Ideally, the findings should reflect the range and diversity of health and medical librarians, their workplaces, resources, and supported communities. Organizations working in this space, such as the Gartner Group and the New Media Consortium (Horizon Report), either have no formal methodology or do not publicly share their strategy. Thus, it was necessary to create and document a methodology for this purpose that can be used by MLA now and in the future. Methods Journal Selection Process (Flow Chart) Emerging technologies are constantly evolving. Identifying relevant journals focused on healthcare technologies will assist in the discovery of novel or previously undiscovered technology terms through the text-mining process. Term Selection Process: Emerging Beginning with the emerging technologies search filter developed by Varela-Lema et al, the team explored truncation, term mappings, and related terms. Alternate search strategies were developed by four volunteers from the team. The complete team compared, tested sensitivity and specificity of individual terms as well as [TI] vs [TIAB] searching to achieve consensus on search terms and processes. Using the MeSH browser, relevant structured vocabulary terms were identified as possibilities to include in the search strategy. These terms were assigned by primary content focus to the clusters of “emerging” or “technologies” or both, with attention given to terms included by explosion of a higher level term. Next Steps & Recommendations The master search strategy has been designed in three versions (broad, narrow, and standard), which will be tested with filters on specific topics such as the human body, public health, education / communication, and libraries / publication. The search results will be reduced to a text dataset comprised of titles and abstracts, to which text mining will be applied to identify conceptual “hot spots.” For future iterations of this project, we recommend developing teams of medical librarians partnered with engineers, computer scientists, or related fields, and searching the engineering literature in addition to the medical literature.

Published online Dec 23 2015; DOI: 10.1002/asi.23631. The creation of a search strategy involved identifying appropriate free text and MeSH terms for three concept groups (emerging technologies, emerging, and technology), and then testing these individually and in combination for sensitivity and specificity. Specific journal titles with high specificity for the topic were hand selected for each concept group. Inclusion/exclusion criteria were identified for the level of specificity required for terms and titles. Concept groups were combined as: [“Emerging Technologies” OR (Emerging AND Technologies)]. The search is limited to the most recent 1-3 years and English language. The language limit is to avoid the challenges of trying to apply text mining across multiple languages whose terms may not be equivalent. Term Selection Process: Technologies Term Selection Process: MeSH MLASR6 https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/115832551443909297773 The Medical Library Association initiated a large systematic review project to assess the level of evidence available to support the profession and practice of medical librarianship in several very important questions. Team 6 has been assigned to explore this topic: The explosion of information, expanding of technology (especially mobile technology), and complexity of healthcare environment present medical librarians and medical libraries opportunities and challenges. To live up with the opportunities and challenges, what kinds of skill sets or information structure do medical librarians or medical libraries are required to have or acquire so as to be strong partners or contributors of continuing effectiveness to the changing environment? Journals selected from NLM Catalog were based on searching relevant terms from subgroups and emerging technologies base search. IEEE and ACM titles were added to the journal list; table of contents were scanned for prior 3 issues or years for the inclusion and exclusion criteria. Titles screened: 157. Titles excluded: 137. Titles retained: 20. The same method was applied to technologies term selection. Here, certain terms from the original search strategy were determined to not add value to the results, and were excluded. Special Circumstances Emerging technologies Unlike most of the other MLASR teams, we are not actually doing a systematic review, and a systematic review methodology would be inappropriate for our topic. The systematic review methodology is designed to look backwards in time, compiling the best of the research on that topic. For emerging technologies, we need to look to the future, rather than the past. This temporal context created challenges which influenced every part of the project. It was made more difficult by the fact that, while there are many think tanks which provide lists of significant emerging technologies, none of them have or share a replicable methodology for how they arrive at their conclusions, forcing us to attempt to create and document one ourselves. Text-mining The search strategy has been developed not for the purpose of creating a data set of citations to evaluate as relevant or not, but rather for the purpose of creating a data set of title and abstract terms, a kind of concordance, to be analysed with text- mining in an attempt to identify ‘hot spots’ or emerging concepts of significance. This means inclusion/exclusion criteria relate not to the characteristics of the resulting citation set, but rather to the purpose of developing a text file which is clearly on emerging technologies and not muddied by other concepts, however interesting those concepts might be.
