Latest Evidence Updates
Some QH libraries put together lists of the latest journal articles. These are categorised by various clinical topics and allow you to stay up-to-date with the most recent publications and developments in your field. Access the latest evidence updates below.
Alerts on new articles sent to your email enable you to stay up to date without having to go searching for new information.
See below for ways to set this up.
1. Table of contents alerts
JournalTOCs send you the newest citations coming directly from the publishers as soon as they have been published online. JournalTOCs endeavours to include every important journal as well as promising new titles.
Register for alerts by searching for the journals you want to stay up-to-date with at http://www.journaltocs.hw.ac.uk/
2. Search alerts
A database alerting service saves a search for later reuse. Mostly, the alert automatically searches the database for the latest records matching your saved searches. The database then sends you updated results for that search by e-mail or RSS feed.
Different databases follow different procedures for setting up search alerts, but the general principles are similar. Alerts are usually set up from a database Search History or equivalent after you have signed in using your profile/account details.
Conduct a search using relevant search term/s and limits
Save the search as an alert. You will be prompted to sign-in or register
Name the alert and select alert option (e.g. email alert)
Choose alert notification frequency (e.g. receive weekly or monthly alerts)
Most database providers have helpful step-by-step instructions for saving searches and setting up search alerts
