Our E-journals Page has Changed!
Posted On: Wednesday, April 26, 2017 - 14:06 by Beverly Murphy

Effective April 25th, our e-journals platform switched over to the current EBSCO platform, which is the same as what we use for our metasearch engine, SmartSearch.

To navigate this new page:

    • Type in the name of the journal or a significant word from the journal title (does not have to be case sensitive). The system will pick up all journal titles with that word as part of the title. Note: The word may also appear or be mapped to other fields in the record (eg. journal description, publisher information, etc). The former alphabetical (A-Z)...

Tools for Choosing Journals
Posted On: Monday, January 30, 2017 - 10:17 by Megan von Isenburg

Choosing a journal for your newest article is not always easy. While you may wish to publish in a high impact journal, there are many factors to consider when picking a journal to submit your latest article, such as audience and potential visibility. Here are a few of our favorite tools for identifying potentially relevant journals for your work:

  • Web of Science or Scopus: These databases allow you to search for keywords and then analyze the results by journal or source title. This lets you see what journals publish most on certain topics.

    Making Information Free: Open Access & More
    Posted On: Friday, October 7, 2016 - 13:56 by Patricia Thibodeau

    Easy and immediate access to journal articles still remains a challenge. Even Duke cannot provide access to everything.  Journal prices have continued to increase year after year with more and more expensive journals being published. That means important clinical, research, and educational content can be locked up for months, years, or permanently, inaccessible to the patients, health providers, researchers, teachers and learners that need access to them.  This problem becomes even more massive when you look at access to information within developing countries, and can become an obstacle as Duke tries to work with global sites to reduce disparities in health, education, and research.

    The following three movements are trying to ensure that...

    JAMA Says: Talk to Your Medical Librarian
    Posted On: Wednesday, September 17, 2014 - 11:16 by Megan von Isenburg

    Want to get published in JAMA? One way to improve your chances is to talk to your medical librarian.

    In a viewpoint piece published on September 10, 2014, potential and future JAMA authors are encouraged to improve their review articles by summarizing the literature in a more systematic way. Written by a medical librarian, a physician, and the Deputy Editor, Clinical Reviews and Education for JAMA, the article lays out the process for doing so and exhorts authors to collaborate with a medical librarian. Extensive literature searches are difficult, and a medical librarian can provide expertise to facilitate the process, save time, and reduce bias in the...

    Bound Journals Moved to New Home!
    Posted On: Thursday, July 24, 2014 - 11:21 by Beverly Murphy

    To make way for the new study spaces we are creating on Level 3, the bound (print) journals in the Medical Center Library & Archives have moved to their new home - Duke's Library Service Center on Briggs Avenue.  

    This move primarily effects journals published between 1985 and 2009/10. While many of our journals are available electronically, some of the older years may not be.

    Access to all our stored journals is freely available by requesting scanned copies of articles through our Document Delivery/Interlibrary Loan Services. If you need assistance finding a journal...
