Databases Beyond MEDLINE for Systematic Reviews
This course will provide an introduction to databases that could be appropriate to include in a Systematic Review (appropriate databases vary depending on the topic). Primary emphasis will be on Embase. Other databases that will be discussed are CINAHL (Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature), PsycINFO, Ovid MEDLINE, Web of Science, EconLit, and others as topics discussed in the class warrant.
Embase is a biomedical and pharmacological database containing bibliographic records with citations, abstracts and indexing derived from biomedical articles in peer reviewed journals, and is especially strong in its coverage of drug and pharmaceutical research and conference abstracts. Embase contains over 22 million records spanning 1974-present, with over 1 million records added annually. All MEDLINE records produced by the National Library of Medicine are included, as well as over 5 million records not covered in MEDLINE.

EndNote Introduction for Biological / Agricultural / Environmental Sciences Researchers
EndNote is a bibliographic management program which simplifies the process of generating bibliographies and reference lists. EndNote allows one to easily store, manage, and format references to any biological/agricultural science core style guide such as CSE, NLM, ACS, or APA or to any specific biological/agricultural journal style such as FASEB J, J Exp Biol, Plant Cell, or J Agr Food Chem. EndNote also helps you organize and easily retrieve publication PDFs.
This introductory class will cover: creating EndNote libraries; direct export of citations from biological/agricultural article databases; importing PDFs into EndNote; adding citations to your libraries; output styles; and Cite While You Write (using EndNote with Microsoft Word).
