The original citation index of predominantly STEM fields; used to find current articles that cite earlier work. Note: Web of Science generally does not include conference proceedings in search results.
Provides bibliographic coverage of journal articles in life sciences, especially focusing on biomedical areas. Part of PubMed's larger set of resources. See MEDLINE searching library guide off library homepage.
Some tips about using Medline on Pubmed
Use the link above, which is enabled with Lehigh Links, which enable you to access full text or order an item via interlibrary loan.
See the related citations feature to find similar articles.
See the "cited by" list (if present); these are articles that cite an article you like: great way to build bibliography!
You can limit to review articles; review articles published after the one you were assigned to start with can point you toward "primary" literature (in this context, non-review journal articles).
Some tips about using MeSH subject headers discussed in class
"ADVANCED": Using MeSH headers and keyword search in conjunction
Do a regular keyword search using the techniques we talked about in class. Then, using the techniques listed below, we can augment the search by using the MeSH header search engine we talked about in class. Recent Medline records may not have been assigned MeSH headers yet, which gives one reason for using both type of searching.
Go to Advanced search screen
Look for "More Resources", upper left of screen
Select MeSH Database option
click on the subject header, e.g. Epigenesis, Genetic.
Check off particular subheadings, such as "immunology"
Click Add to search builder after select OR.
Use back key on browser
Add other terms as needed
Then Search PubMed
Now go back to advanced search screen
Toward bottom you will see a search history
Click on "Add" to "Add to builder" the search terms; search terms will appear in the "Builder" (the search boxes) above the search history
Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature across many disciplines and sources.
(Note: To maximize access to Lehigh resources, when in Google Scholar, go to Settings, then Library links, then type in Lehigh University. If we do not subscribe to an article, this setting will enable a Lehigh Link to obtain the article via interlibrary loan.)
Links to PDFs when available; excellent for finding specific articles or books.
To do precision searches, go to the far upper left, select the "hamburger" icon, then select advanced search on the menu.
