Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effects (DARE)
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/about/DARE/

The Centre for Reviews and Dissemination (CRD) is an international center engaged exclusively in evidence synthesis in the health field. The CRD also manages a number of databases that are used extensively by health professionals, policy makers and researchers around the world. The CRD also undertakes methods research and produces internationally accepted guidelines for undertaking systematic reviews. The Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effects (DARE): Between 1994 and March 2015, CRD researchers systematically searched the world literature to identify and describe systematic reviews, appraise their quality and highlight strengths and weaknesses.

UpToDate

June 02, 2018

UpToDate
https://www.uptodate.com/

UpToDate is an evidence-based, physician-authored clinical decision support resource which clinicians trust to make the right point-of-care decisions. More than 6,500 world-renowned physician authors, editors, and peer reviewers use a rigorous editorial process to synthesize the most recent medical information into trusted, evidence-based recommendations that are proven to improve patient care and quality. Over 1.3 million clinicians in 187 countries and nearly 90% of major academic medical centers in the United States rely on UpToDate to provide the best care. More than 80 research studies confirm widespread usage of UpToDate and the association of its use with improved patient care and hospital performance — including reduced length of stay, fewer adverse complications, and lower mortality. UpToDate has earned the trust of the healthcare community over more than 25 years because of the integrity of its recommendations, including the fact that we never accept funding from pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufacturers, or other commercial entities. UpToDate topics are viewed more than 43 million times per month, and our 2016 subscriber survey found that clinicians find the answers to their question over 94% of the time. This success reflects the breadth (25 specialties) and depth of our clinical content (over 11,000 topic reviews, each of which answers multiple clinical questions).

PeerJ – Award Winning Biological, Medical, and Environmental Sciences Journal

May 30, 2018

PeerJ – Award Winning Biological, Medical, and Environmental Sciences Journal
https://peerj.com/

To solve our greatest challenges we need a 21st century update to scholarly communication. Their mission is to efficiently publish the world’s knowledge. They do this through Internet-scale innovation and Open Access licensing to save your time, your money, and to maximize recognition of your contributions. They aim to drive the costs of publishing down for the academic community, while improving the overall publishing experience, and providing authors with a publication venue suitable for the 21st Century. They have two peer-reviewed publications: “PeerJ” serving the Biological, Medical and Environmental sciences and “PeerJ Computer Science.” Additionally we publish “PeerJ Preprints”, which is an innovative ‘preprint server’ covering Biology, Medical, Environmental and Computer Science. Authors can pay either a low-cost per article publication fee (i.e. APC) or for a lifetime publishing membership, which gives them the ability to publish their articles with them for free. The Q&A + annotations platform provides a second route to recognizing contributions for knowledge-share. This will be added to Healthcare Resources Subject Tracer™.

LitMed: Literature Arts Medicine Database

April 05, 2018

LitMed: Literature Arts Medicine Database
http://medhum.med.nyu.edu/

From the New York University School of Medicine comes LitMed Database: “a collection of literature, fine art, visual art and performing art annotations.” This database was launched in 1996 and is currently edited by Lucy Bruell. The database currently contains well over 3,000 resources related to the medical humanities. Visitors may browse these resources alphabetically in the A-Z index, where annotations can be explored by title, author/artist/director, keyword, or genre. Alternatively, visitors can also browse the collection by format (e.g. painting/ drawing; fiction; film, T.V., video). Each entry includes a summary of the item’s content along with additional commentary. In addition, entries are tagged with themes for easy browsing. For example, an entry about the television show Downton Abbey includes the tags caregivers, family relationships, trauma, and war and medicine (among others). This database may be especially helpful to educators interested in leading discussions about the portrayal of health and medicine in literature and popular culture. In addition, this database may also be useful for practitioners and patients looking for resources about a specific topic. This will be added to Healthcare Resources Subject Tracer™.

BEN Portal: BioSciEdNet

BEN Portal: BioSciEdNet
www.biosciednet.org/portal

Originally featured in the 01-18-2013 Scout Report, we’ve decided to re-feature the BEN Portal: a project of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). For almost two decades the BEN Portal, which stands for BiosciEdNet, has sought to provide “seamless access to e-resources, but to also serve as a catalyst for strengthening teaching and learning in the biological sciences.” Today, the BEN Portal (which has also been affiliated with the National Science Digital Library since 2005) features publications from over thirty organizations, including the AAAS, the American Physiological Society, the Biotechnology Institute, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and much more. Visitors are invited to conduct a text search in this collection or browse materials by subject. In addition, educators can browse teaching strategies by classroom level (K-12 educators; college faculty). The BEN Portal features both free resources and resources that require a subscription: users have the option to limit search results to free resources.

The Kepler Project

March 13, 2018

The Kepler Project
https://kepler-project.org/

The Kepler Project is dedicated to furthering and supporting the capabilities, use, and awareness of the free and open source, scientific workflow application, Kepler. Kepler is designed to help scien­tists, analysts, and computer programmers create, execute, and share models and analyses across a broad range of scientific and engineering disciplines. Kepler can operate on data stored in a variety of formats, locally and over the internet, and is an effective environment for integrating disparate software components, such as merging “R” scripts with compiled “C” code, or facilitating remote, distributed execution of models. Using Kepler’s graphical user interface, users simply select and then connect pertinent analytical components and data sources to create a “scientific workflow”—an executable representation of the steps required to generate results. The Kepler software helps users share and reuse data, workflows, and compo­nents developed by the scientific community to address common needs. The Kepler software is developed and maintained by the cross-project Kepler collaboration, which is led by a team consisting of several of the key institutions that originated the project: UC Davis, UC Santa Barbara, and UC San Diego. Primary responsibility for achieving the goals of the Kepler Project reside with the Leadership Team, which works to assure the long-term technical and financial viability of Kepler by making strategic decisions on behalf of the Kepler user community, as well as providing an official and durable point-of-contact to articulate and represent the interests of the Kepler Project and the Kepler software application. Details about how to get more involved with the Kepler Project can be found in the developer section of this website. Kepler is a java-based application that is maintained for the Windows, OSX, and Linux operating systems. The Kepler Project supports the official code-base for Kepler development, as well as provides materials and mechanisms for learning how to use Kepler, sharing experiences with other workflow developers, reporting bugs, suggesting enhancements, etc. This will be added to Biological Informatics Subject Tracer™.
