Who is Citing Your Work?
Speaker: Cathy Sarli

Mark your calendar

Are you interested in tracking your research by finding out who is citing your work? Knowing how your research is being used in the scientific literature can also be of value for consideration of tenure, promotion dossiers, progress reports, and quantifying the return on research funding or for justification for future funding requests. This session will demonstrate resources and tools that authors can use to track how their research is being used.
Thurs., Nov. 19
PubMed - It's not Google
Speaker: Carol Murray

Mark your calendar

While PubMed's query box looks like Google's interface, these are portals into very different worlds. The Web is a huge and amorphous mass of documents connected by links. Google analyzes the links to impose order on the Web. The Medline database is highly organized, and a thorough understanding of its core component, MeSH, a controlled vocabulary, is essential to optimal searching. The National Library of Medicine's PubMed search engine provides access to over 19 million biomedical citations and offers links to many online publications and related articles. Learn how PubMed makes use of Medline's organization in translating your search questions.
