  • Literature Searching for Clinical Researchers

    This course offers a 3 hour interactive session in carrying out a methodical and comprehensive literature search in the Medline database using the OVID search interface in order to identify relevant material to inform your research.

    The course will cover the following objectives:

    • Be aware of information sources (databases) and techniques used to identify relevant literature
    • Recognise the importance of formulating an answerable question and planning your search in advance
    • Identify the relevant search terms for each area of your search
    • Construct a comprehensive search strategy using a combination of database-specific controlled vocabulary (Subject Headings), free text search strings and Boolean logic (AND/OR/NOT)
    • Use database specific limits and search filters to refine your search and identify the most relevant literature.

    The session will comprise a taught session using an example search question followed by the opportunity for participants to work on their own search strategy with assistance from the course leaders. Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops/tablets for the practical session.
