Learning does not stop with your health sciences degree & textbooks you study. You need to track the internet & print resources for patient care, academics & research. This course teaches you to understand medical resources. It shows you how to search for medical updates and get relevant results

When you write an article, book chapter or a thesis, you have to let readers know about other articles or resources you have read and may be quoted. This is "Referencing" other resources. There are very specific elements of any resource that you must reference. There are styles of referencing - thousands of them. You need to use the style that your publisher asks for. Learn these nuances in this introductory course. You will also learn what a Reference Manager is - a tool to automate referencing work
Is PubMed a search engine / a collection of medical journals / a medical website? How does one make a search more meaningful? How does one search PubMed to get all results, for doing a systematic review / meta-analysis? This course clarifies all doubts and takes you through a thorough step by step process of mastering PubMed.
Struggling with adding citations / bibliography to your article? Forgot where you stored pdfs and PubMed results that you wanted to cite? Learn to use a reference manager. No more laborious typing / editing. Reference Managers allow us to save hours of time and concentrate on the actual documentation of your research / article!

We present a collection of resources useful for searching the health sciences literature and writing and reporting of research.

Some resources are created by QMed, others are mostly well known resources available online.

In the Extra Reading section, we have a compilation of topics, for which we have links to articles in PubMed. We've added three hyperlinks to each topic, each of which retrieves PubMed results based on the search strategies we used. The first searches for resources related to Indian research. The second retrieves free articles, while the third locates non-free but still important articles.
