OVID Health Sciences Resources

Availability: 
Description: 

The OVID products include CINAHL, Medline, Evidence Based Medicine Reviews (including the Cochrane databases), HealthSTAR, 8 reference/text e-books, and the 75 e-journals that make up the OVID Nursing Collection II.

The Cumulative Index to Nursing & Allied Health (CINAHL) database provides authoritative coverage of the literature related to nursing and allied health. Virtually all English-language publications are indexed along with the publications of the American Nurses Association and the National League for Nursing. Selected journals are also indexed in the areas of consumer health, biomedicine, and health sciences librarianship. In total, more than 1600 journals are regularly indexed; online abstracts are available for more than 1500 of these titles. There are more than 18,000 records with full text now included. The database also provides access to healthcare books, nursing dissertations, selected conference proceedings, standards of professional practice, educational software and audiovisual materials in nursing. More than 11,000 CINAHL subject headings provide specific access to CINAHL citations. Many CINAHL headings are adopted from the National Library of Medicine’s Medical Subject Headings. CINAHL supplements these headings with terms designed specifically for nursing and allied health.

Produced by the U.S. National Library of Medicine, the MEDLINE database is widely recognized as the premier source for bibliographic and abstract coverage of biomedical literature. MEDLINE encompasses information from Index Medicus, Index to Dental Literature, and International Nursing, as well as other sources of coverage in the areas of allied health, biological and physical sciences, humanities and information science as they relate to medicine and health care, communication disorders, population biology, and reproductive biology. More than 12 million records from more than 3,900 journals are indexed, plus records formally indexed in Healthstar, Bioethicsline and Aidsline. Abstracts are included for about 75% of the records.

Ovid HealthSTAR is comprised of data from the National Library of Medicine's (NLM) MEDLINE and former HealthSTAR databases. As such, it contains citations to the published literature on health services, technology, administration, and research. It focuses on both the clinical and non-clinical aspects of health care delivery. The following topics are included: evaluation of patient outcomes; effectiveness of procedures, programs, products, services and processes; administration and planning of health facilities, services and manpower; health insurance; health policy; health services research; health economics and financial management; laws and regulation; personnel administration; quality assurance; licensure; and accreditation.

Evidence Based Medical Reviews helps clinicians to find the best answer to clinical questions in the least amount of time. There are 4 databases:

  • The editors of ACP Journal Club screen the top clinical journals on a regular basis and identify studies that are both methodologically sound and clinically relevant. They write an enhanced abstract of the chosen articles and provide a commentary on the value of the article for clinical practice.
  • The Cochrane Controled Trials Register (CCTR) is a bibliographic database of definitive controlled trials. These controlled trials have been identified by the distinguished contributors to the Cochrane Collaboration. They and others, as part of an international effort to search the world's health care journals (and other sources of information) systematically, have combined results to create an unbiased source of data for systematic reviews. CCTR contains over 300,000 bibliographic references to controlled trials in health care.
  • The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (COCH) includes the full text of the regularly updated systematic reviews of the effects of healthcare prepared by The Cochrane Collaboration.
  • the Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effectiveness (DARE) is a full text database containing critical assessments of systematic reviews from a variety of medical journals. DARE is produced by the expert reviewers and information staff of the National Health Services' Centre for Reviews and Dissemination (NHS CRD) at the University of York, England, and consists of structured abstracts of systematic reviews from all over the world. DARE records cover topics such as diagnosis, prevention, rehabilitation, screening, and treatment.

The e-books are important Nursing reference resources.

JSTOR

Availability: 
Resource Type: 
Description: 

The JSTOR archive is a searchable database of full-text research journals in a variety of academic disciplines. All articles are full text. Individual journals can be browsed or searched. A search of the entire database can be performed.

See the number of associated journals for each subject covered on the Search screen (click "Browse by subject").

The Trent Library subscribes to the Arts & Sciences I, II, III, IV, V, VI, Arts & Sciences Complement, and Life Sciences (Biological Sciences / Health and General Sciences combined) collections. This includes over 1100 journals. These journals include complete backruns, from the first volume to 3-10 years ago (no current volumes). 

Journals in JSTOR have "moving walls" that define the time lag between the most current issue published and the content available in JSTOR. The majority of journals in the archive have moving walls of between 3 and 5 years, but publishers may elect walls anywhere from zero to 10 years.

New in 2013!  JSTOR also hosts a "Current Scholarship Program", providing current collections of journals.  Trent subscribes to many individual titles, as well as the University of Chicago Press package of 41 titles.

JSTOR, a not-for-profit organization, began in 1994 as a pilot project by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to help libraries meet the space and budgetary challenges posed by the growing volume of scholarly research.

Notes: 

JSTOR does not need to be searched directly to find articles available within it. When you search another major index (such as Historical Abstracts or Sociological Abstracts) and it identifies a citation to a journal that is available through JSTOR, the Getit_sm_trans service will connect us to the article in JSTOR.

Available through a CRKN agreement (renewed for 2014-17).

Coverage: 
Varies by journal. Begins with volume 1 of each journal and often has a "moving wall" that determines which recent volumes are available.

Mobile App

BioOne Mobile is an optimized website now available to smartphone users. With this new mobile interface, all content from BioOne's journals and book series is available for easy access to faculty, students, and researchers via their iPhone, Android, and Blackberry smartphones.

Because BioOne's optimization is site-wide, there is no app to download or keep updated. Instead, users will be automatically directed to BioOne's mobile site whenever they access bioone.org from a compatible mobile device. Users accessing the site from an iPad or tablet are shown the full site for optimal viewing, but can select the mobile site if they prefer.

Just as on the full BioOne site, users are able to access abstracts and the full text of open access articles without a subscription. Users can also access their account profiles; execute complex searches, sorting by most-recent, most-downloaded, or most-cited articles; and save PDFs for future access.

Pairing Your Device

Users associated with an institutional subscription (e.g.Trent users) can easily pair their device with their university's access privileges, giving them access to all subscribed content, whether they are in the library or on-the-go. Pairing lasts for 90 days, after which you must pair it again.

Your device is automatically paired when you visit the site from airTrent or when you use a link from the library website.
