OBJECTIVE: Article full texts are often inaccessible via the standard search engines of biomedical literature, such as PubMed and Embase, which are commonly used for systematic reviews. Excluding the full text bodies from a literature search may result in a small or selective subset of articles being included in the review because of the limited information that is available in only title, abstract and keywords. This article describes a comparison of search strategies based on a systematic literature review of all manuscripts published in 5 top-ranked epidemiology journals between 2000 and 2017...

INTRODUCTION: Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) guidelines have been updated every 5 years since 2000. Significant changes have been made in each update, and every time a guideline is changed, the instructors of each country that ratify the American Heart Association (AHA) must review the contents of the revised guideline to understand the changes made in the concept of CPR. The purpose of this study was to use a computerized data mining method to identify and characterize the changes in the key concepts of the AHA-Basic Life Support (BLS) updates between 2000 and 2015...

During Eugene Garfield's (EG's) lengthy career as information scientist, he published about 1500 papers. In this study, we use the impressive oeuvre of EG to introduce a new type of bibliometric networks: keyword co-occurrences networks based on the context of citations, which are referenced in a certain paper set (here: the papers published by EG). The citation context is defined by the words which are located around a specific citation. We retrieved the citation context from Microsoft Academic. To interpret and compare the results of the new network type, we generated two further networks: co-occurrence networks which are based on title and abstract keywords from (1) EG's papers and (2) the papers citing EG's publications...

We present a novel approach to recommending articles from the medical literature that support clinical diagnostic decision-making, giving detailed descriptions of the associated ideas and principles. The specific goal is to retrieve biomedical articles that help answer questions of a specified type about a particular case. Based on the filtered keywords, MeSH(Medical Subject Headings) lexicon and the automatically extracted acronyms, the relationship between keywords and articles was built. The paper gives a detailed description of the process of by which keywords were measured and relevant articles identified based on link analysis in a weighted keywords network...

In the information retrieval task, searching and choosing keywords to form the query is crucial. The present study analyzes and describes the keywords' search strategy into a thesaurus in the field of pharmacovigilance. Two ergonomics experts shadowed 22 pharmacovigilance specialists during their daily work. They focus on the strategies for searching and choosing MedDRA terms to build pharmacovigilance queries. Interviews of four pharmacovigilance specialists completed the observations. Results highlight that, for unusual or complex searches, pharmacovigilance specialists proceed iteratively in three main phases: (i) preparation of a list of terms and of evaluation criteria, (ii) exploration of the MedDRA hierarchy and choice of a term, and (iii) evaluation of the results against the criteria...

Keyword search in a cluttered environment is difficult in general, and even more challenging for people with low vision. While magnification can help in reading for low vision people, it does not facilitate efficient visual search due to the constriction of the field of view. The motivating observation for this study is that, in a large number of visual search tasks, people know what are they looking for (i.e., they know the keywords), they just do not know where to find them in the scene. We have developed a mobile application that allows the users to input keywords (by voice or by typing), uses an optical character recognition (OCR) engine to search for the provided keyword in the scene captured by the smartphone camera, and zooms in on the instances of the keyword detected in the captured images, to facilitate efficient information acquisition...
