For the July #ukmedlibs chat, we’re going to try a Twitter journal club. The chat will take place at 8pm on Tuesday 21 July and the paper to be discussed is this:
Rethlefsen ML, Farrell AM, Osterhaus Trzasko LC, Brigham TJ.
Librarian co-authors correlated with higher quality reported search strategies in general
internal medicine systematic reviews.
J Clin Epidemiol. 2015 Jun;68(6):617-26. doi: 10.1016/j.jclinepi.2014.11.025
We know not everyone will have access to this as, sadly, the Journal of Clinical Epidemiology is not part of the national bundle (though it really ought to be, hint, hint, and while we’re about it, how about Research Synthesis Methods as well). However it is available through most ScienceDirect or ClinicalKey bundles, or you could ask your LKS’s document supply wizards to find you a copy.
We’ll post questions for consideration here before the chat. See you on 21 July!
