28th Annual Health Science Research Days, February 20-21, 2017

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.

PubMed Homepage Enhancements & PubMed Journals

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.

For more information, click here: https://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/techbull/so16/so16_pubmed_homepage_enhancement.html

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.
