Pubmed 2.0 Scheduled to go Live Mid May

This month you should notice a new look to Pubmed.

Highlights of new Pubmed include:

  • Ability to cite references quickly in your preferred citation style format (AMA, APA, NLM, or MLA)
  • Best Match sorting algorithm that brings the most relevant results to the top of your search results
  • Better searching capabilities on your mobile device with a consistent look throughout all devices
  • Better at finding synonyms and accounting for British/American spelling differences.

The new PubMed still includes the features you rely on for searching, as well as saving and sharing your results:

  • Save your search results to a file, email your results to yourself or a colleague, or send your results to a clipboard, collection, or your NCBI My Bibliography
  • Advanced search page to search for terms in a specific field, see the search details, review your search history and combine searches to create complex search strings
  • Save your search and create an email alert. Any saved searches and settings you previously created should be transferred automatically.

The National Library of Medicine has created a page with links to PubMed tutorials and handouts.

Going up for Promotion and Tenure? Contact the Health Sciences Library to Save you Time

Working on your promotion and tenure packet? Perhaps your third year review? Contact the Health Sciences Library to save you time.

Your subject librarian can gather the relevant metrics to show the impact and quality of your work. These metrics can include traditional metrics like impact factor and acceptances rates, and non-traditional metrics like almetrics. (Not all journals will have impact factors, so non-traditional metrics are a good alternative to consider when establishing the quality and impact of your work.)

To get the process started, email us for a consultation to discuss what metrics you need for your P&T materials, as well as other services available to you.
