PubMed (National Library of Medicine) represents by far the first information source when it comes to medicine related information.
Even though it is free, it has a very well-structured searching system and controlled vocabulary.
It has recently also added a new interface and features that make it even more useful.
However, especially for Pharmacovigilance purposes, sometimes it is not considered sufficient. Therefore, in many cases it would be appropriate to extend literature monitoring activities.
The aim of this training is to broaden literature monitoring activities in an advance manner using low-cost or free additional sources such as Core, CrossRef, MedXRiv, BioXRiv.
