ECRI Guidelines Trust: Tool to Access Clinical Practice Guidelines
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. The ECRI Institute, a non-profit organization focused on bringing applied scientific research to healthcare, created this guideline repository in response to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s (AHRQ) loss of funding for National Guideline Clearinghouse (NGC) in July 2018. 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:

Browzine Access Ended August 31st
Posted On: Wednesday, August 22, 2018 - 11:21 by Brandi Tuttle
Access to the handy resource, BrowZine (think "browsing"), will be ending this month. Browzine allowed you to stay current with the literature by aggregating and organizing information in one place, enabling you to browse, read, and monitor current journals in your subject areas. While access to that resource will disappear, we are here to help you make the transition (or start new habits)!
Docphin and Read by QxMD are two apps we suggest. Both provide easy access to Duke University’s journal subscriptions, make it easy to share, and allow you to create a customized news feed so you don’t waste any time staying current.

Posted On: Wednesday, August 15, 2018 - 15:14 by Megan von Isenburg
Writing and publishing articles can be challenging. Obstacles to getting published include lack of time to write, not knowing the right journal to send your manuscript to, and lack of familiarity with the entire research to writing process. Few researchers are formally taught about the publication process. To address this, the Medical Center Library & Archives has partnered with Wiley Researcher Academy to offer online instruction on over a dozen topics in publishing.
Wiley Researcher Academy is a modular, self-paced online learning program for early career researchers who wish to develop their expertise and understanding of the scientific publishing...MORE

What Review is Right for You?
Posted On: Monday, June 25, 2018 - 00:07 by Sarah Cantrell
Many researchers say they want to conduct a systematic review, only to be dismayed by the amount of time, effort, skill, and teamwork required to pull off that feat. Even with time and a good team, the research question might not be best suited to systematic review methodology.
There are actually many other review methodologies that researchers can choose depending on their research question. We've put together a guide to make the distinctions between review types easier to understand and to help guide you in selecting the best methodology for your research question.
If a systematic review is right for you, we have a new product to assist you but there are a limited number of seats...MORE
