F1000 Is Now Sciwheel
Posted On: Tuesday, September 22, 2020 - 17:39 by Beverly Murphy

The F1000 family of products (F1000Workspace, F1000Prime and F1000Research) has evolved as a way to discover, read, annotate, write, and share scientific research and is now known as Sciwheel. This change was effective in April 2020 and does have some implications for our users.

Sciwheel is available for free to all Duke University faculty, staff, and students. However, it does require a user to log in from the campus network every 60 days to verify institutional affiliation.  If you are experiencing difficulties doing this because you are...

Do you miss meeting and studying in the Medical Center Library? We sure do! Instead, we are all spending a lot of time on Zoom these days.

We have created several free virtual background templates for you to download and use. They feature images from the Medical Center Library and surrounding campus areas from the very beginning of the hospital up until now. We hope you enjoy them!

Reporting Guidelines for Studies
Posted On: Friday, April 26, 2019 - 12:34 by Sarah Cantrell

Starting a new research project without a reporting guideline can feel daunting – a bit like driving without Google Maps. You may have a vague sense of where to go and what you need to do, but the details and street names are a bit hazy. 

Thankfully, numerous "roadmaps" for health research studies exist. The EQUATOR Network has helpfully gathered these reporting guidelines all in one convenient location and includes reporting guidelines for case reports (CARE), quality improvement studies (SRQR), observational studies (STROBE), randomized controlled trials (CONSORT), and systematic reviews (PRISMA), among others....

Creating and Using an ORCID iD
Posted On: Thursday, April 25, 2019 - 18:22 by Karen Barton

As of March 1, an author search for "John Smith" yields 818 results in Scopus. The first 30 authors in this search have over 7,300 articles combined. ORCID (pronounced ORKID or ORK ID) is a great solution for differentiating authors and connecting them to all of their own research.  As a globally supported non-profit organization, it maintains a registry of unique and persistent identifiers for authors that may be used across databases and other places where research is found.

All you need to do is register and it only takes 30 seconds! You can then link your ID to other identifiers such as those found in Scopus, Duke Directory and Scholars@Duke, and LinkedIn. Keep in...

Posted On: Monday, December 17, 2018 - 09:28 by Amanda Woodward

The ECRI Guidelines Trust is a new portal to access evidence-based clinical practice guidelines summaries.

For 20 years, ECRI Institute worked with AHRQ to develop and maintain the NGC website.

Developed independently from NGC, Guidelines Trust is a growing resource that includes clinical practice guidelines that meet the following inclusion criteria:
