Featured Article from Medicine and Related Fields: February 2017

Each month we feature one article from a School of Medicine author with the highest journal impact factor.

This month’s article, entitled Uniform low-level dystrophin expression in the heart partially preserved cardiac function in an aged mouse model of Duchenne cardiomyopathy, was co-authored by Dr. Nalinda B. Wasala, Yongping Yue, Jenna Vance, and Dr. Dongsheng Duan of the Department of Molecular Microbiology and Immunology, in the Journal of Molecular and Cellular Cardiology (impact factor 4.874 in 2015).

Note: Dr. Michael LeFevre did co-author a publication in Annals of Internal Medicine (impact factor 16.593), but this article was not featured as it was a “note”.

Message from the Director: Deborah Ward


Change is in the air, and at the Health Sciences Libraries, we are changing too. At the same time, we are staying true to our mission of providing the lasting, community-wide benefits of access to vital information and services that make a difference to our users. We continue to seek new ways to bring value to the teaching and learning experience, patient care excellence, and research efforts.

While we regret that the budget realities we all face have caused us to cancel journal titles this year, and more will follow next year, we hope we can continue to propel your success through access channels rather than the ownership model that is becoming more difficult for all libraries to sustain. 


Be sure to follow our library to learn more about the work we are engaged in, and we look forward to furthering our work with all of you.

Gemille Purnell headed to Washington D.C.

Gemille Purnell, a graduate library assistant with the Health Sciences Library, recently won a scholarship to attend the Consumer Food Safety Education Conference, January 25th-27th in Washington D.C. 

Gemille was among twelve awardees chosen by the committee of the non-profit Partnership for Food Safety Education. In order to be eligible for this opportunity, Gemille had to complete an application, write an essay on how attending the conference would have a positive impact on her professional future, and have a faculty member submit a letter of recommendation. 

When asked why she decided to apply for this scholarship, Gemille said "food safety is a public health concern that often gets overlooked, so I felt this conference would be a great opportunity for me to enhance my professional readiness." 

Congratulations Gemille!

Downs and Dalabih: The risk of shorter fasting time for pediatric deep sedation (Open Access Article)

This week's Open Access article features two University of Missouri Faculty. 

  • Dr. Craig Downs, DO., is an Assistant Professor of Clinical Child Health. Dr. Downs primary interest is pediatric critical care.  If you would like to learn more about Dr. Downs click here
  • Dr. Abdallah Dalabih, MD., MBA, is an Assistant Professor of Clinical Child Health. He is involved in clinical research in pediatric critical care and sedatio, with one other study accepted for publication and four others that are in the process of submission. Those four projects will be published by two medical students and two pediatric residents all as first authors. Click here for Dr. Dalabih's faculty profile. 

Dr. Downs, Dr. Dalabih, and their research team published in Anesthesia: Essays and Researches, an open access peer-reviewed international journal by the Pan Arab Federation of Societies of Anesthesiologists. The journal covers technical and clinical studies related to Anesthesia, pain management, intensive care and related topics including ethical and social issues.

Their research in The risk of shorter fasting time for pediatric deep sedation, investigates that safety of a shorter fasting time compared to a longer fasting time before pediatric procedural sedation and analgesia. The current guideline, adopted by the American Academy of Pediatrics, calls for prolonged fasting times. This prospective observational study tries to identify the association between fasting times and complications related to sedation. 

 

Dr. Dalabih took the time to answer some questions we had about open access:

Why did you choose to publish in an Open Access journal?

We selected a journal that is indexed at PubMed so it would be easy to find and that can be accessed all over the world. The journal of Anesthesia: Essays and Researches is an open access journal and is indexed at PubMed with no publication fees, so we elected that journal to showcase our research project.

Would you publish in an Open Access journal again?  If so, why?

Yes, with the increased prices of subscriptions, libraries and physicians are having some difficulty accessing articles they need. This is especially true at countries with poor economies. Open access journals allows those physicians to benefit from the study and will increase the distribution.

Novemeber 17th is the  University of Missouri’s Health Sciences Research Day and to conicide, the library is providing ORCID registration assistance at the information desk, from 9am-5pm.

Why should you register? 

  1. ORCID ID's help distinguish your publications and research from others with a similar name. Further, it allows you to combine publications that you might have written under a different name. This allows you to claim your work and to create a virtual CV that links to the publications and other cites.

MU Libraries Participates in Women’s and Children’s Hospital Reverse Trick-or-Treat

For the past few years, the Women's and Children's Hospital has organized reverse trick-or-treating. MU employees are invited to hand out treats to pediatric patients, siblings, and children of adult patients. This year, one of our medical librarians, Taira Meadowcroft, asked for volunteers to go with her this Halloween to participate.

This fantastic group put together halloween bags filled with stickers, pencils, instruments, play-doh, and many other goodies. In all their Halloween glory, they loaded up several boxes, and headed to the hospital. Once there, they were greeted by superheros, princesses, football players, and tinkerbells, all waiting to trick-or-treat. By the end, there was no goodie bags left!

Thanks to all who volunteered to be apart of the 200 MU and MU health staff who handed out treats. Be sure to take a peek at the MU Health instagram and story https://www.instagram.com/muhealth/

Our volunteers included: Grace Atkins, Cindi Cotner- Halloween , Stara Herron- Jack Skellington , Taira Meadowcroft- Netlflix, Kimberly Moeller- Ninja, Paula Roper, Caryn Scoville, Deb Ward- Wizard , Rhonda Whithaus
