EndNote – How to show ALL authors in your reference list

Posted on: |

Here’s how to change EndNote to show all authors and not “et al” in the reference list as is required with NIH submissions.

Please note that you can download the following output styles from EndNote.com: Vancouver – NIH and NIH (Grant Format).

Nurses often use APA style. so that’s what I use for the following.   You can also choose the style Author-Date instead of APA and follow the same steps.

Open EndNote
Make sure APA 6th is in your favorites style list. You can place it there if it isn’t by doing this:
Edit, Output Styles, Open Style Manager, check APA 6th and close window. Now using Edit, Output Styles, make sure APA 6th is checked as your style of choice.

Now edit this style to show all authors in the reference list:
Edit, Output Styles, edit APA 6th, and a dialog box opens
Under Bibliography, click Author Lists, select List all author names, close and save – say yes to changes, which leads to the option of entering a new name (e.g., APA 6th NIH), and save.

Now place the newly edited style in your favorites list:
Edit, Output Styles, Open Style Manager, check APA 6th NIH and close window. Now using Edit, Output Styles, make sure APA 6th NIH is checked as your style of choice. EndNote will now use this style to format your bibliography. You may need to go into your Word manuscript and choose under the EndNote tab Update Citations and Bibliography.

Finding Impact Factors & Nursing Journals

Posted on: |

Looking for impact factors for nursing journals? ISI’s Journal Citation Reports provides a quick way to see the impact factors for over 100 nursing titles at a glance.

Here’s how:
1. Access the Journal Citation Reports database

2. Choose JCR Science Edition for the latest year available

3. View a group of journals by subject category and submit

4. Select Nursing and View Journal Data (you can sort by Journal Title for an alphabetical list or Impact Factor for a ranked list) and submit

The Impact Factor and other data are listed

Please note that the ISI databases now include 107 nursing journals.

You may also search for individual journals instead of a group of journals in step 3.

Choosing JCR Social Science Edition in step 2 gives you 105 journals. Not included in the Social Science Edition listing are these 4 journals: American Journal of Critical CareBiological Research for NursingHeart & Lung, and Journal of Human Lactation

Summer Library Workshops

Now is the time to take a hands-on summer workshop at the Health Sciences Library!

Summer Institute in Narrative Medicine

Posted on: |

Are you a student or soon to be a student at a healthcare professional school? The Summer Institute in Narrative Medicine is opening registration to students of all healthcare professions. 

The Program in Narrative Medicine of Columbia University is co-sponsoring  an intensive Summer Institute in Narrative Medicine with the American Medical Student Association on June 8 – 12, 2015.

They are seeking pre-medical college undergraduates and medical students, and those studying in other health care fields, who want to develop knowledge and skill in Narrative Medicine. This five-day institute will deliver keynote lectures and small-group training in the fundamentals of narrative approaches to clinical care.

  • Receive intensive training in close reading, creative writing, and reflective practice
  • Learn from the national leaders in inter-professional and inter-disciplinary education and team-building
  • Hands-on creative projects in language, visual art, performance art, and multi-media
  • Study with Master of Science in Narrative Medicine graduates, students, and faculty
  • Visit New York resources in the arts, music, and theatre

I took the Narrative Medicine 3-day course previously and highly recommend it. Feel free to contact me if you would like to speak more about my experience.  Plus, I am happy to recommend some good reads!

ORCID – author identifiers

Posted on: |

We have all found publications by researchers with the same names or initials.  So, is it the person we want?  What to do?

ORCID ID numbers are showing up on CV’s.

ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher.  Through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submissions, it supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognized.

Distinguish yourself in 3 easy steps. Entries allow significant profile and bio information.

Maybe you know about Thomson Reuters’ ResearcherID?  Here’s how the attribution identifiers, ORCID and ResearcherID, integrate.
