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.
