Some you may have missed – 05 January, 2010
These irregular round-ups of health and biomedical informatics news items culled from a range of sources are becoming less regular than had been intended. However, the following is an idiosyncratic and serendipitous collections of items taken from recent weeks’ RSS feeds dealing with health and informatics. (All links are for information only, and do not imply any IMIA endorsement of any item or view expressed).
HLWIKI Canada – A wiki for health librarians – Dean Giustini has published a list of educational guides that will help those framing and undertaking research-related activities. The resource is intended for librarians, but many other health professionals, especially novice researchers and students, will find what they are looking for. The material can be found directly on HLWiki Canada. The collections include:
- Applying for grants;
- Bibliographic citation software;
- Impact factor;
- Major clinical studies & trial types; and
- Submitting to an academic journal.
