Rudolph Matas Library continues to receive several journals in print. These issues are now kept near the magazine and newspaper racks for browsing and reading in the library commons. Titles include: European Journal of Endocrinology General Surgery News Journal of Neuroscience Oncology Reports
Public Health Reports
CDC Vital and Health Statistics WHO Weekly Epidemiological Record
Every Thursday: Come to the i2PH at Tidewater 1714 to work with a librarian. Together we will find literature, reports, data, and/or statistics. We will work on whatever you need, such as navigating Pubmed, using RefWorks and EndNote, etc.
The 28th Annual Health Sciences Research Days will be held a few weeks earlier than usual: Monday February 20th – Tuesday February 21st, 2017.
We hope that this change from our usual scheduling will permit academic departments to integrate the event into their recruiting efforts for graduate programs. The Office of Research will distribute the Call for Abstracts in early December with an abstract deadline of Wednesday January 11th, 2017.
Please mark your calendars and share the information with your students and trainees. We welcome your participation and look forward to another successful event.
NCBI has just announced several upcoming enhancments to PubMed:
The PubMed homepage will soon be updated with new opportunities to browse content of recent interest. The page will include the new feature, Latest Literature, and two existing features, Trending Articles and PubMed Commons. The Latest Literature feature highlights new articles from highly accessed journals and links to our new feature PubMed Journals (see Find, Browse and Follow Biomedical Literature with PubMed Journals for more information).
Trending articles are those with a significant increase in daily views in the past two days as compared to the previous baseline period. PubMed Commons are the current top comments determined by multiple factors based on members’ ratings of comment helpfulness.
In addition, there will soon be a link to "PubMed Journals". Following the latest biomedical literature can be a challenge, but the new PubMed Journals from NCBI will help you keep up to date.
PubMed Journals lets you:
Easily find and follow journals of interest.
Browse new articles in your favorite journals.
Keep up to date with a Journal News Feed containing new arrivals, news links, trending articles, and important article updates (retractions and more!).
Get started now:
Visit the PubMed Journals homepage to see a list of popular journals.
Click a journal title to browse the most recent content and news feed.
Click the "Follow" button to add to your personal journal list.
To follow a journal, you must be logged into your NCBI account. If you are not already logged in to NCBI, you can try out our completely revamped login experience. The new NCBI login, like the old, works with any existing NCBI account or your eRA Commons, NIH, or federated university account. A link to PubMed Journals will be found on the enhanced PubMed homepage.

HTTPS at NCBI: Guidance for NCBI Web API Users. NLM Tech Bull. 2016 Jul-Aug;(411):b5.
2016 July 28 [posted]
On September 30, 2016, NCBI will move all Web services to the HTTPS protocol to meet the Federal HTTPS-Only Standard directive for Federal Web sites and services. While this move will improve security and privacy, it may also disrupt any processes that currently access NCBI APIs using the HTTP protocol.
Journal Citation Reports (JCR) is part of the database Web of Science. JCR has the impact factors for journals in your discipline, and is a great place to determine where to publish your research for the highest impact. Sure, you can google a journal name + the term impact factor to find impact factors quickly, but to get the correct and up to date impact factor, going to the source is best.
Here's how to find JCR & Web of Science on the Matas homepage.
1. Select RESOURCES (top middle-right of screen)
2. Select WEB OF SCIENCE (center middle of screen)
3. Select JOURNAL CITATION REPORTS (upper left corner of screen)
