Please take the time to watch these brief tutorials. They will assist you with your research while in the Clinical Research online program.
Watch all the tutorials on the library guide regarding PubMed, RefWorks, and Write-N-Cite. These tutorials are very helpful and tell you exactly how to go about doing your assignment. Using the tutorials as your guide, search PubMed to find the following types of articles on your disease topic. Choose your articles carefully as you may want to use them for some of the later assignments in this class. This activity will give you a jump start to your research for later this semester! Be sure to include all recent articles (2 years and recent) if possible as many of your assignments this semester will be on recent research.
To check that you are able to use PubMed, AMA style and Refworks appropriately, complete the following task.
