Keeping Current: Stay Up to Date with the Latest Biomedical Research (via Zoom)

Researchers today confront an enormous and seemingly overwhelming flood of scientific literature, blogs, podcasts, and more . Fortunately, there are some excellent tools that can help you filter and organize the information that best matches your areas of interest. This workshop will provide a close look at: 1) powerful biology/medicine article recommendation databases (F1000/Faculty of 1000); 2) citation trackers and article level metric tools (via Scopus, PLOS, and ImpactStory); 3) customized literature database auto-alerts (PubMed’s MY NCBI); 4) podcast organizers for mobile devices (InstaCast and BeyondPod); 5) journal reading apps (Read by QxMD);  6) electronic tables of contents; and 7) selected social media tools (Twitter and Symplur).

Please note: This class will be held via Zoom. The instructor will send the Zoom link 24 hours before the session.
