Finding Orthopaedic Information on the Internet - Part 1 The Literature
Location: http://www.coa-aco.org/library/orthopaedic-informatics/finding-orthopaedic-information-on-the-intern ...
Access to the major citations databases of the scientific literature is one of the great contributions the Internet has made to the practice of orthopaedics. The Medline database of the US National Library of Medicine (NLM) has been online at the PubMed site for three years now. It has 102 journals exclusively concerned with orthopaedics, hand surgery or orthopaedic sports medicine. There are some publications like the COA Bulletin, which are not in Medline, but most of the major orthopaedic journals are. A properly conducted search of Medline will yield a very valuable review of the literature. Each "citation" in Medline contains the reference, the authors, the abstract (where available) and the keywords used to index the entry.
