Effective Literature Research with Europe PMC


Following the latest developments in your scientific field requires thorough and frequent literature research. In this webinar we will show how to find and access relevant scientific literature using Europe PMC, an open biomedical literature database, part of PubMed Central International. We will cover searches by topic and author, searches for associated research data, as well as advanced options for building complex queries.

This webinar was recorded on 30 May 2018. It is best viewed in full screen mode using Google Chrome. The slides from this webinar can be downloaded here.

To learn more about searching grant information and on managing, exporting and saving searches you can watch our previous webinar Europe PMC: get the most from literature searches. You will find more information about Europe PMCs API service in our webinar Europe PMC, programmatically. You can also try our Europe PMC: Quick Tour

This webinar is aimed at scientists who want to optimise their literature searches. No prior knowledge of bioinformatics is required, but an undergraduate level understanding of biology would be useful.
