Getting Started in Anesthesia Research

To find articles published in the field of Anesthesia, you will search in Medline, the largest index of biomedical literature in the world, and in CINAHL, the Cumulative Index of Nursing and Allied Health Literature.

Both Medline and CINAHL are primarily indexes, which means they allow you to search for and find out about articles published on health care topics, but they don't necessarily contain the full text of any particular article that you find (both these indexes contain some full text articles).

There are links from these indexes to the full text of the articles, if the library has the full text.

If we don't have an article that you need, and you are a student, staff or faculty at UM-Flint, we will get it for you from a library that does have it.  This is a free service called Interlibrary Loan.

 

What is Peer Review?

Peer review is the process in which a scholar's work is reviewed by experts in a field before being accepted for publication (in the case of journals).  Many people give more credence to journal articles that have gone through a peer review process because they have been reviewed by experts in the field (rather than just an editor as is the case of a newspaper or magazine) before being accepted for publication. 

 

Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service provided to faculty, staff and students to supplement the Library's collection.  You can request materials (books, articles, etc.) from other libraries around the world with this service.  Simply fill out the form after logging into the ILLIAD system to request an item.

This is a different service from Get This, which will request materials available on the Ann Arbor campus.
