My latest paper, ” Using Search Engines to Find Online Medical Information”

Posted in Medicine, Technology by Dr Mohammad Al-Ubaydli on August 5, 2005

My latest paper, “Using Search Engines to Find Online Medical Information“, has just been published through PLoS Medicine.

The rise of the search engine Google (www.google.com), along with other freely available search engines, has made it easier to find information, although the clinical uses of Google have not been as well documented as those of PubMed [1]. Google will not point to the answer to every question, and often the articles it finds in response to your question are not freely available. But for many clinical scenarios, Google and other search engines can provide, quickly enough, an answer that is good enough. This article aims to provide tips that will help with these clinical scenarios, saving time that can be used with a medical librarian to answer more difficult problems.
