Two Library Workshops: Altmetrics Using Scopus and 5 Things You Did Not Know About PubMed


 Altmetrics using Scopus  focuses on Scopus, a citation database provided by the Health Sciences Library. The influence of social media is pervasive in the scientific and scholarly literature. Altmetrics are positioned as a resource to provide an impact rating for published works. The premise behind altmetrics is its reliance on social media sites such as LinkedIn, Twitter, and even Facebook to identify mentions of current and emerging publications. Altmetric searches can also discover information managed by online sites such as Zotero and Mendeley.

In another workshop, find out at least 5 Things You Did Not Know about PubMed. This workshop will discuss the following: 1) PubMed’s MeSH Database, 2) easy access to evidence-based literature, 3) how to access comparative effectiveness research articles, 4) PubMed links from clinical trials to systematic reviews, and 5) how to identify if a publication has been retracted before you include it in your research.
