Changes Coming to the E-Journals Page in December
Effective December 16, all links to E-journals will take you to a search for E-Journals on all subjects and disciplines and not just those for the Medical Center Library & Archives. This is similar to searching for e-journals in the library catalog which includes resources for all the libraries across Duke. During this transition, we welcome your feedback, comments and questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your Scholarly Communications Questions Answered
Are you trying to find the best journal for your next research manuscript? Do you know how to find a journal's impact factor? Have you received an email invitation to publish or speak at a conference? Are you wondering what options you have for paying an article processing charge to make your article open access?
The answers to these and other common questions from our faculty, students, and staff about publishing and scholarly communications are now available on our Website via our Scholarly Communications section.
Linked from the main page under "Our Expertise" and located in the Training and Consulting section of our site, Scholarly Communications features extensive FAQs and links to resources and guidance to help you publish your work, measure your research impact, and engage in open science. We have also created a page on libraries and publishers to provide further information about how we decide what to license for our constituents.

Citation Management Tools – Alternatives to EndNote
Steph Hendren, Research & Education
Many are familiar with EndNote as a helpful citation management tool that assists with collecting, saving, and citing papers. But sometimes EndNote can feel somewhat cumbersome to use. If you are on the market for a new citation manager, you might want to try out these other options.
Sciwheel, a Web-based tool, allows you to create and organize a library of citations, discover new literature, and conduct group citing and editing of manuscripts via Google Docs. The browser plugin makes it easy to gather references from around the Web.
Zotero is a freely available tool that offers desktop and Web versions and works well with both Windows and Mac. It is easy to use and makes collaborative projects relatively simple via Google Docs. If you run out of free storage, aadditional inexpensive storage space is available for purchase.
Mendeley is a free Web-based tool similar to Zotero, but it sets itself apart with a robust PDF annotating tool. Because Mendeley doesn't work within Google Docs, you would have to create a bibliography and copy it over to the document. Thus, Mendeley might be a great fit for those who use citation managers for personal projects but not for those participating in a lot of group work.
RefWorks is another Web-based tool that a lot of people know and love from their undergraduate programs. RefWorks features a lot of storage space for people who like to gather PDFs.
Leaving Duke soon? Zotero and Mendeley are both free and do not require a paid subscription. If you have downloaded EndNote, you will be able to keep that software, but you won’t be eligible for version upgrades through Duke. Sciwheel and RefWorks are only available for free while at Duke.
We Offer a Variety of Free Online Classes
We offer a variety of online classes on research and searching topics every month. All classes are free and offered virtually, though registration through our Website is required. In addition to these classes, you can also request an online session for yourself or a group or schedule an appointment for a research consultation.

New COVID-19 E-Books
Barbara Dietsch, Electronic Resources & Acquisitions Manager, Collection Services
Below are a few select titles from our collection about COVID-19. Most reviews are excerpted from Amazon.com.
Jorge Hidalgo, Gloria Rodríguez-Vega, and Javier Pérez-Fernández
COVID-19 Pandemic: Lessons from the Frontline provides a broad, global view of all aspects related to preparation for and management of SARS-CoV2. It explores and challenges the basis of knowledge, the transmission of information, and the preparation and epidemiology tactics of healthcare systems worldwide.
Muhammad Saad and Timothy J. Vittorio
Written by a team of experts who worked on the frontlines in New York City throughout the worst of the pandemic, this pocket guide is a one-of-a-kind resource for providing safe, effective care for COVID-19-related heart conditions. Designed for quick and easy learning and on-the-spot clinical decision making, it is organized into chapters based on genuine clinical cases, providing the best approach for each one.
In December 2019, the world witnessed the occurrence of a new coronavirus to humanity. The disease spread quickly and became known as a pandemic globally, affecting society and the health care system, from the young to the elderly. It was a universal challenge that immediately caused a surge in scientific research.
Igor Linkov, Jesse M. Keenan, and Benjamin D. Trump
This book aims to provide a collection of early ideas regarding the results of applying risk and resilience tools and strategies to COVID-19. Each chapter offers a distinct contribution to the new and rapidly growing literature on the developing COVID-19 pandemic. Vantage points range from civil and environmental engineering to public policy, from urban planning to economics, and from public health to systems theory.
Dominika Kwasnicka and Robbert Sanderman
This volume explores crucial topics of health behaviour change, wellbeing, stress, and coping. It highlights key roles that digital health technologies can play in how we manage health conditions and how we facilitate change to help individuals manage stressful situations such as physical isolation, job loss, and financial strain during the COVID-19 pandemic. The book also offers an important overview of environmental and policy-based approaches to health behaviour change and addresses the highly relevant issues of identity and trust and how they shape the health of individuals, communities, and society.
EndNote 20 Integrates Retraction Watch
Samantha Kaplan, Research & Education
There's never been a better time to update to EndNote 20! The latest version has been integrated with the Retraction Watch database. This means users will be alerted if any of the publications in their library are retracted! An update to EndNote 20 will help to ensure you aren't citing retracted research.
Learn more about the latest update to EndNote on their Website. If you’re not currently an EndNote user, you can download it from Duke's Office of Information Technology. If you’re new to EndNote, sign up to take one of the Library’s introductory classes!
For Zotero users, Retraction Watch has been integrated for several years.
Journal Impact Factor News
Margaret Graton, Research & Education Intern
Did you notice a jump in the Journal Citations Report Impact Factor for one of your favorite journals this year? If so, good catch!
Journal Impact Factor calculations depend on the calendar year of publication. For journals that still publish in print, Clarivate traditionally used the print publication date to determine the year of publication. However, in the past 20 years, various models of online publication (early view, advance access, accepted articles) have been introduced. Typically, these online articles are citable with a stable DOI, weeks to months before they appear in a print issue, but have not been counted in the Journal Impact Factor until their print publication date.
For 2021, Clarivate has changed the game. Early Access citations with a publication date of 2020 are included in the numerator of the Journal Impact Factor equation. Journals that have a backlog of articles online waiting on print publication will receive a Journal Impact Factor bump from this change. The playing field will level again by 2022. There are indications that this model may affect some journals disproportionately.
What does this mean for authors and researchers? While Journal Impact Factor is still a good metric, you may want to consider other metrics as well while the Journal Impact Factor data fluctuations work their way out of the system. You can view our Journal Metrics information on the Publication Metrics Guide.
Archives Oral Histories: David C. Sabiston
Lucy Waldrop, Assistant Director for Medical Center Archives
In the August 2021 issue of our newsletter, we featured “Archives Oral Histories" which outlined what an oral history is and the types of oral histories held at the Medical Center Archives. In the October issue, the second offering of this multipart series highlighted the newly redesigned and updated online exhibit of "Women in Duke Health," a unique historical perspective from women in multiple fields at Duke, many who were pioneers or “firsts” in some way in their disciplines. In this issue, we highlight the David C. Sabiston Oral History Project, initiated by the Department of Surgery as a way to collect memories from people who knew him in order to write a definitive biography.
Dr. David Coston Sabiston Jr., MD (1924-2009) came to Duke in 1964 as James B. Duke Professor of Medicine and Chairman of the Department of Surgery. These were positions he held until his retirement in 1994. During his 30 year career at Duke, he trained thousands of surgeons and created one of the most respected surgical residency programs in the world. His training programs have been emulated by medical schools around the world. During his tenure at Duke University, he was the principal investigator of a National Institutes of Health (NIH) Grant supporting an Academic Surgical Research Training Program, which supported the Duke Teaching Scholar in Academic Surgery program. While being financed from his first NIH grant, a Research Career Development Award, he became the principal investigator of a National Heart Institute grant that was funded continuously for 35 years.
Prior to coming to Duke, Sabiston, a native of Jacksonville, NC, received his MD from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in 1947. He completed his surgical residency under Dr. Alfred Blalock at Johns Hopkins Hospital, and following this, he spent two years as a Captain in the U.S. Army Marine Corps, posted at Walter Reed Medical Center doing cardiovascular research, where he became interested in physiology and pathophysiology of the coronary arteries. After his military service, Sabiston returned to Johns Hopkins as an assistant professor of surgery and an investigator in the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Within ten years of joining the faculty at Johns Hopkins, he was promoted to professor of surgery.
The majority of Sabiston's research concerned the field of cardiothoracic surgery. He made significant contributions to the understanding of coronary artery blood flow, which led to innovative clinical therapies. He also conducted important studies on pulmonary embolisms and defined many of the mechanisms associated with thrombus formation and lysis and pulmonary injury.
The Sabiston Oral History Project currently contains 38 interviews conducted with people who knew and worked with him both at Duke and outside of Duke. If you are interested in learning more about the project or any of our Archives holdings, please contact the Archives staff.
A Year in Systematic Reviews: Stats from the Library Service
Steph Hendren, Research & Education
The Llibrary's Systematic Review (SR) Service is one of the ways librarians collaborate with faculty and researchers in order to make significant contributions to their respective fields. Over the past year, the Library has kept track of the number and types of comprehensive search requests in which the librarians have participated, including projects like systematic reviews and scoping reviews. Research & Education Librarian, Sami Kaplan, found some interesting statistics that shed light on the amazing work Duke faculty, researchers, and librarians put into these projects!
Average number of articles to screen: 4071
This might sound like a lot of articles to screen, but the Library has a subscription to a software called Covidence that helped tremendously! This resource sped up the screening process, accurately tracked all decisions, and displayed them in a built-in PRISMA flowchart.
Highest number of resources searched for a single project: 6
Methodology guidelines, such as the National Academies Press' Standards for Systematic Reviews, often require at least 2 or 3 databases to be searched for a systematic review. However, the research question or subject topic might fall across several resources and therefore require more places to be searched, which is what happened in our case. Librarians can assist with identifying and constructing complex and nuanced searches for each and every one of these databases to ensure everything relevant for a research question is captured.
Busiest month for new SRs: January
The start of the semester is busy for both students and researchers alike! January has, on average, the highest number of new project requests submitted to the Medical Library. Other months with above-average volume have included May, June, and July.
If you are a researcher who is interested in starting a new SR to add to these statistics, the Library has a number of resources to help the process. To get started, contact the Library at email@example.com with a completed Literature Search Planning Form.
Duke OIT's ePrint service is now available for all Duke users from the Library's computers or from your own devices using the ePrint client software. For more on ePrint and print allocations for students and staff, see the OIT ePrint page.
Color printing is also available from Library computers for 15 cents per page. You must have a FLEX account to pay for color printing. For information on how to add money to your FLEX account, visit the DukeCard Website.
Library staff co-authored over 35 articles in 2021, more than 30 of which were evidence syntheses or meta-analyses. These articles build off the work of all Library staff, not only those who serve as co-authors for their methodological and literature search expertise. All of our Library staff play a role in making articles and databases available for this work, including licensing resources, maintaining networks, requesting articles from other libraries, and answering questions at the desk. Our systematic review service has grown dramatically in the past few years, and all of us are proud to play an essential role in this meaningful work.
Below are some of the articles that were co-authored this year that have not already been shared in any of the 2021 newsletter issues. Library staff are highlighted in bold.

Welcome to our Library Interns!
Research & Education Intern
Carter Hulinsky joined the Archives staff as an Intern in October, 2021. He received his BA from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln where he majored in Sociology and minored in History and Czech Language. He is currently working towards a Masters of Library and Information Science with a Concentration in Archives and Records Management at University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. After graduating in 2023, he hopes to continue working in Archives, where he revels in the little known stories and details found in archival materials, as well as the opportunities to learn and reasons to explore. Carter developed an interest in archives in high school. During a building renovation project, he rescued some archival treasures from the dumpster which had been thrown out by the construction crew who cleared it trom the school's basement storage.
Since starting at the Medical Center Archives, Carter has immediately gotten to work on processing a collection of notebooks from a research laboratory on campus, where he is learning about rehousing, basic preservation tasks, and creating a finding aid to provide future users access to these materials. Carter sees this Internship as serving as a laboratory for hands on learning while in graduate school. Working at the Medical Center Archives will give him the opportunity to gain experience with a variety of formats, both digital and physical, not available in the classroom. When not busy with school or at work, Carter enjoys hiking on nearby trails, exploring public gardens, touring historic homes, and seeking out antique stores. He collects many things including Kewpies, glassware, and pottery.
Margaret Graton joined the Research & Education staff as an Intern in in August, 2021. She received her Masters in Comparative Literature from the University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, Scotland, and is working on her Masters of Library and Information Science degree at the University of North Carolina, Greensboro. Prior to joining us, Margaret was a Senior Managing Editor for several journals under Oxford University Press and Wiley and thereby brings her unique perspective of a scientific journal editor to her work with our researchers.
Margaret became interested in librarianship after attending a conference in 2019 and says what she likes about library work is "... it’s very practical/hands-on and that we’re carrying on a tradition that spans centuries, even from the library of Alexandria." Working at the Medical Center Library & Archives will give her the opportunity to gain experience with the wide variety of work that takes place in academic medical libraries, as well as help her choose her professional path. Since starting at the Library, Margaret has been developing her expert searching skills and is participating in our systematic review service. You may also get the pleasure of interacting with her through our email or chat reference service or at the Library Service Desk. When Margaret is not at work or busy with school, she is a Tolkien scholar and loves Irish dancing, baking and cosplay.
ZScaler and Use of Library Resources
ZScaler, an Internet and Web gateway security tool, is being implemented across Duke Health. Early users reported barriers to accessing Library resources when ZScaler was running on their Duke computers.
We have devised a strategy that allows Library access, but you will need to use the Library Website to get that access. In order to be recognized as an authorized Duke user, you must access the Library Websites/systems and sign in.
If you are having issues getting access, please submit a ticket to DHTS at https://duke.service-now.com/sp
