PMC has Citation Exporter Feature

Forwarded from NLM:

PMC (PubMed Central)  is happy to announce the addition of a citation exporter feature. This feature makes it easy to retrieve either styled citations that you can copy/paste into your manuscripts, or to download them into a format compatible with your bibliographic reference manager software.

When viewing an Entrez search results page, each result summary will now include a “Citation” link. When, clicked, this will open a pop-up window that you can use to easily copy/paste citations formatted in one of three popular styles: AMA (American Medical Association), MLA (Modern Library Association, or APA (American Psychological Association). In addition, the box has links at the bottom that can be used to download the citation information in one of three machine-readable formats, which most bibliographic reference management software can import. /ch

Thursday, December 11 – 10:00 MT/11:00 CT- Systematic Reviews with Ben Harnke – a Professional Development Funding recipient

Have you ever had a request for a systematic review…with a deadline of two weeks!?!?! Do you find a disconnect between what you think a systematic review is and what the researcher does? The University of Pittsburgh’s “Systematic Review Workshop: The Nuts and Bolts for Librarians” is an excellent introduction to this increasingly popular study design. Join Ben Harnke as he highlights the key takeaways from this three-day workshop.  Join us at:  https://webmeeting.nih.gov/mcreducation

HHS and NIH take steps to enhance transparency of clinical trial results

In an effort to enhance the transparency of clinical trial results, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the National Institutes of Health proposed regulations to implement reporting requirements for clinical trials that are subject to Title VIII of the Food and Drug Administration Amendments Act of 2007 (FDAAA). “This proposed rule would close an important gap, making additional information about clinical studies of investigational drugs, medical devices and biological products available to the public,” said FDA Commissioner Margaret A.

From NLM:

NIH is funding to efforts that will support librarians and information professionals involvement with big data.

RFA-LM-15-001: MOOC on Data Management

This funding announcement seeks applications for the development of a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) that covers a comprehensive set of topics related to the management of biomedical Big Data. The primary audience for this course is librarians and information specialists, who could use these materials as the basis of training and services to graduate students, faculty, research staff and administrators at their organizations. However, the resource should also be usable by any of these audiences for self-instruction. Application due date: March 17, 2015

RFA-LM-15-002: Open Educational Resources

This funding announcement seeks applications for the development of curriculum modules that can be used by librarians and other information specialists to prepare researchers, graduate students and research staff to be full participants in the global community that maintains and accesses digitally-stored biomedical Big Data. Application due date: March 17, 2015 /ch

Data Visualization

Librarians attending the Quint meeting in Denver expressed interest in learning more about data visualization. The latest post from the OERC offers information about a free seven-part workshop and a link to a fun blog site. And, if you are a movie buff, check out Cindy’s link to visualizations of famous movie quotes at movie quotes.

The workshop:

Chris Lysy of FreshSpectrum  is offering a free seven-part data visualization workshop.  Chris has provided data viz training for the American Evaluation Association.

Chris’  cartoon-illustrated evaluation blog. He calls himself the Rachel Ray of data visualization, which makes his course description a nice feature for the OERC’s Thanksgiving blog post.
