Assignment 3: Connecting to PubMed

You can do this assignment after section 3.5

PubMed is a widely used search system for searching journal articles in the field of medical sciences.
The search system is freely accessible. We connect to PubMed via the connection file which is included in the EndNote software.

  1. Open EndNote and create a new library.
  2. Use the connection file PubMed (NLM) in EndNote under Online Search to establish a connection with PubMed (or access PubMed (NLM) via Tools - Online Search).
  3. Search for references on nursing homes in the Netherlands (type: nursing homes Netherlands)
  4. Transfer the first 100 shown references into the newly created library.

Have a look at your library:

  • Have the references been transferred correctly?
  • Which fields are filled?
  • Do the references match the reference types?
