EndNote and Mac OS Catalina
Posted On: Monday, August 12, 2019 - 11:54 by Sarah Cantrell
Are you using EndNote on a Mac? If so, there are important changes underway! In October, Apple will be releasing the latest macOS 10.15 (also known as Catalina). With the release of Catalina, Apple will be dropping all 32-bit application support and this will impact EndNote. EndNote X9 for Mac will be extensively updated for compatibility prior to the launch of Catalina.
What do you need to do?
- If you already have EndNote X9, please install all updates as they become available to avoid interruption in your workflow.
- If you are running EndNote...

Track Your Publishing Contributions in Publons
Posted On: Friday, May 24, 2019 - 16:34 by Megan von Isenburg
What is Publons?
Publons is a Web service that allows you to track your publications, citations, and contributed peer reviews in one dashboard. Publons also calculates your h-index (the productivity/impact indicator calculated using the number of articles and number of citations to those articles) and displays all data on a public-facing dashboard.
Originally launched as a service to track completed peer reviews, Publons was recently purchased by Clarivate, the group that owns Web of Science, and has added integrations with published citation data using the Web of Science...MORE

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....MORE

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.MORE

PMIDs, DOIs, and PMCIDs Oh My!
Posted On: Tuesday, April 23, 2019 - 16:44 by Brandi Tuttle
Let’s take a moment to demystify these commonly used acronyms. They are all unique identifiers for an article (like a barcode), which can be used to easily link to or find an article online.
A PMID (such as 30256255) is a unique numerical identifier for an article in PubMed. You will notice every article included in PubMed has a PMID under the citation/abstract. You can search this number in PubMed or our E-Journals page to go straight to that particular article.
The International DOI Foundation assigns a unique alphanumeric string to content online known...MORE
