Research Tools for Medics

Did you know that Scopus searches far more journals than PubMed?    Do you know which are the highest impact journals in your discipline?  Are you keeping up to date with the latest publications in key journals?

Next week the Bodleian Libraries and IT Services will be teaming together to cover these questions and many more at our Research Skills Toolkit. We have two dedicated sessions for Medical Sciences on Wednesday 2nd December and Thursday 3rd December.

If you’re not familiar with the Research Skills Toolkit, these are 2 hour workshops at which you have a chance to try out 10 different tools and skills which will help you in your research.
The Medical Sciences Toolkits will include the following:

  • Keeping up to date and current awareness
  • Searching for articles and papers on Scopus and Ovid databases
  • Finding highly cited journals and measuring research impact
  • Your thesis and ORA – essential information about copyright and sensitive data
  • Plagiarism and how to avoid it
  • Endnote for managing citations, inserting intext references/footnotes and creating bibliographies
  • Manipulating images using Gimp
  • Managing your thesis with Word
  • Podcasting with Audacity
  • Analysing data with Excel Pivot tables

These workshops are very popular and booking is essential, so please be sure to
book your place online.
