There are several ways to store PubMed hits:
1. send them in an e-mail
2. save them to your own PubMed account (My NCBI)
3. export them to a reference managing program (e.g. EndNote, Mendeley).
1. Send hits in an e-mail (max. 200)
2. Saving hits to your own My NCBI account
You can save your hits and even your search query in PubMed in your own My NCBI account. You can create an account free of charge. Saving your search query also makes it easier to create alerts for new titles.
3. Exporting references
Many programs are available for storing, editing and sharing references. Two commonly used applications are discussed here. In both programs, you can easily save references, organize them in groups, add and annotate PDFs, and add citations to Word documents (‘cite-while-you-write’).
VU/VUmc provides support for EndNote. You will find more information on EndNote at www.ub.vu.nl. EndNote is well suited as a daily reference manager program. It is particularly useful for Systematic Reviews, offering numerous advantages (such as creating a library per topic). Ready to get started with EndNote? Visit our LibGuide EndNote to help you get going.
Mendeley is a free reference manager program. VU/VUmc does not offer targeted support for Mendeley. One of its greatest advantages is cross-platform support (desktop, web, tablet) and easy sharing of references. Ready to get started with Mendeley? Use these helpguides and training videos on Mendeley.
You can save a search in PubMed by creating a free account at My NCBI. Your search will be stored there and you can set alerts for new articles. Watch the short PubMed video (1:20) about saving searches.
In PubMed: Click on an article. One or more logos will appear to the top-right of the PubMed screen.
1. The publisher link: refers to the article by the publisher. This will be a full text version if the publisher has an open-access policy or if UBVU has a subscription to the relevant journal.
2. The VU link indicates whether UBVU has the full text version. If UBVU has a subscription to the journal, then you can access the article by clicking on the publisher’s name. When you are off-campus, you need to log on with your VUnetID. You can also request the article from the library (a fee applies).
3 Install the Lean Library browser extension on your computer, which allows you to use automatic digital content from the University Library and Open Access content to track your literature.
4. Read in How to get the PDF? how to find alternative versions of the publisher version of a magazine article.
NARCIS is dé nationale portal voor wie informatie zoekt over wetenschappers en hun werk. Naast wetenschappers maken ook studenten, journalisten en medewerkers binnen onderwijs, overheid en het bedrijfsleven gebruik van NARCIS.
NARCIS biedt toegang tot wetenschappelijke informatie waaronder (open access) publicaties afkomstig uit de repositories van alle Nederlandse universiteiten, KNAW, NWO en diverse wetenschappelijke instellingen, datasets van een aantal data-archieven, alsmede beschrijvingen van onderzoeksprojecten, onderzoekers en onderzoeksinstituten.
Dit houdt in dat NARCIS (nog) niet gebruikt kan worden als ingang tot complete overzichten van publicaties van onderzoekers. Er zijn echter steeds meer instellingen die al hun wetenschappelijke publicaties via NARCIS toegankelijk maken. Op deze wijze kunnen de publicatielijsten van de wetenschappers zo compleet mogelijk worden gemaakt.
In 2004 is de ontwikkeling van NARCIS gestart als een samenwerkingsproject van KNAW Onderzoek Informatie, NWO, VSNU en METIS in het kader van de dienstenontwikkeling binnen het DARE-programma van SURFfoundation. Dit project heeft de portal NARCIS verwezenlijkt, waarin in januari 2007 de dienst DAREnet is geïncorporeerd. Sinds 2011 is NARCIS een dienst van DANS.
A MOOC is an online course aimed at unlimited participation and open access via the web.
National Academic Research and Collaborations Information System
NARCIS is the main national portal for those looking for information about researchers and their work. Besides researchers, NARCIS is also used by students, journalists and people working in educational and government institutions as well as the business sector.
NARCIS provides access to scientific information, including (open access) publications from the repositories of all the Dutch universities, KNAW, NWO and a number of research institutes, datasets from some data archives as well as descriptions of research projects, researchers and research institutes.
This means that NARCIS cannot be used as an entry point to access complete overviews of publications of researchers (yet). However, there are more institutions that make all their scientific publications accessible via NARCIS. By doing so, it will become possible to create much more complete publication lists of researchers.
In 2004, the development of NARCIS started as a cooperation project of KNAW Research Information, NWO, VSNU and METIS, as part of the development of services within the DARE programme of SURFfoundation. This project resulted in the NARCIS portal, in which the DAREnet service was incorporated in January 2007. NARCIS has been part of DANS since 2011.
When people create educational resources, they may choose to share them with others openly and freely. This means that others can use these materials as part of their courses and lessons without permission. A creator of an open textbook, for example, can give explicit permission to others to use their book free of charge. We call these open education resources (OER).
