3. Publishing trends of journals with manuscripts in PubMed Central: changes from 2008–2009 to 2015–2016 (PubMed)

Publishing trends of journals with manuscripts in PubMed Central: changes from 2008–2009 to 2015–2016 The National Institutes of Health (NIH) public access policy mandates that all articles containing NIH-funded research must be deposited into PubMed Central (PMC). The aim of this study was to assess publishing trends of journals that were not selected for the National Library of Medicine (NLM) collection but contain NIH-funded articles submitted to PMC in compliance with the public access (...) policy. In addition, the authors investigated the degree to which NIH-funded research is published in journals that NLM does not collect due to concerns with the publishers.We analyzed bibliographic data from the NIH Manuscript Submission system for journals that were not selected for the NLM collection from August 2015 to August 2016. Publications (n=738) were analyzed by language, publishing country, publishing format, and subject, and the results were compared to a similar study of 2008-2009 data

4. Gaps in affiliation indexing in Scopus and PubMed (PubMed)

Gaps in affiliation indexing in Scopus and PubMed The authors sought to determine whether unexpected gaps existed in Scopus's author affiliation indexing of publications written by the University of Nebraska Medical Center or Nebraska Medicine (UNMC/NM) authors during 2014.First, we compared Scopus affiliation identifier search results to PubMed affiliation keyword search results. Then, we searched Scopus using affiliation keywords (UNMC, etc.) and compared the results to PubMed affiliation (...) keyword and Scopus affiliation identifier searches.We found that Scopus's records for approximately 7% of UNMC/NM authors' publications lacked appropriate UNMC/NM author affiliation identifiers, and many journals' publishers were supplying incomplete author affiliation information to PubMed.Institutions relying on Scopus to track their impact should determine whether Scopus's affiliation identifiers will, in fact, identify all articles published by their authors and investigators.

OvidSP Medline-to-PubMed search filter translation: a methodology for extending search filter range to include PubMed's unique content. PubMed translations of OvidSP Medline search filters offer searchers improved ease of access. They may also facilitate access to PubMed's unique content, including citations for the most recently published biomedical evidence. Retrieving this content requires a search strategy comprising natural language terms ('textwords'), rather than Medical Subject Headings (...) dysfunction, left ventricular diastolic dysfunction, and LV dysfunction). Together these terms reclaimed 157/834 (18.8%) of lost citations.MeSH terms facilitate precise searching in PubMed's indexed subset. They may, however, work less effectively as search terms prior to subject indexing. A validated PubMed search filter can be used to develop a supplementary textword-only search strategy to extend retrieval to PubMed's unique content.

6. Kidney transplantation search filters for PubMed, Ovid Medline, and Embase. (PubMed)

Kidney transplantation search filters for PubMed, Ovid Medline, and Embase. Clinicians commonly search bibliographic databases such as Medline to find sound evidence to guide patient care. Unfortunately, this can be a frustrating experience because database searches often miss relevant articles. We addressed this problem for transplant professionals by developing kidney transplantation search filters for use in Medline through PubMed and Ovid Technologies, and Embase.We began by reading (...) kidney transplantation filters used multiple terms in combination.The best performing filters achieved 97.5% sensitivity (95% confidence interval, 96.4%-98.5%), and 98.0% specificity (95% confidence interval, 97.8%-98.3%). Similar high performance was achieved for filters developed for Ovid Medline and Embase. Proof-of-concept searches confirmed more relevant articles are retrieved using these filters.These kidney transplantation filters can now be used in Medline and Embase databases to improve

7. Dialysis Search Filters for PubMed, Ovid MEDLINE, and Embase Databases. (PubMed)

Dialysis Search Filters for PubMed, Ovid MEDLINE, and Embase Databases. Physicians frequently search bibliographic databases, such as MEDLINE via PubMed, for best evidence for patient care. The objective of this study was to develop and test search filters to help physicians efficiently retrieve literature related to dialysis (hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis) from all other articles indexed in PubMed, Ovid MEDLINE, and Embase.A diagnostic test assessment framework was used to develop (...) list." These filters reached peak sensitivities of 98.6% and specificities of 98.5%. The filters' performance remained robust in an independent validation subset of articles.These empirically derived and validated high-performance search filters should enable physicians to effectively retrieve dialysis information from PubMed, Ovid MEDLINE, and Embase.

8. Pruning Emtree: Does Focusing Embase Subject Headings Impact Search Strategy Precision and Sensitivity?

1 Impact Search Strategy Precision and Sensitivity? 1. BACKGROUND Embase is a key database to be searched when undertaking health technology assessments (HTAs). Despite its overlap of coverage with MEDLINE, much empirical research demonstrates that it contains unique content; 1 which has meant that it should be searched to inform HTAs. Recent developments within The Cochrane Collaboration to incorporate Embase records reporting randomized controlled trials (RCTs) have illustrated (...) to ensure that the researchers employed a consistent approach. 3.3 Identifying the relevant records in Embase The relevant studies that contributed to the identification of the efficacy/safety records of each SR/HTA were sought in Embase (OvidSP) and MEDLINE (OvidSP) using a known author and/or title search approach and the Find Citations tab in Ovid. Typical examples are shown below: A prospective randomized comparison of vertical banded gastroplasty.ti. agren g.au. and vertical.ti. prospective

9. Lost in translation? A multilingual Query Builder improves the quality of PubMed queries: a randomised controlled trial. (PubMed)

Lost in translation? A multilingual Query Builder improves the quality of PubMed queries: a randomised controlled trial. MEDLINE is the most widely used medical bibliographic database in the world. Most of its citations are in English and this can be an obstacle for some researchers to access the information the database contains. We created a multilingual query builder to facilitate access to the PubMed subset using a language other than English. The aim of our study was to assess the impact (...) . the English group (respectively 37.9% vs. 17.9%; p < 0.01). It took significantly more time for the members of the English group than the members of the French group to build each query, respectively 194 sec vs. 128 sec; p < 0.01.This multi-lingual query builder is an effective tool to improve the quality of PubMed queries in particular for researchers whose first language is not English.
