Accessing Ovid journals on the university network

Some NHS staff are experiencing problems accessing Ovid journals on the university network due to a change in how the library links to university online content via SFX and Shibboleth.

If you are experiencing this problem, log in via Athens to the NHS A-Z E-Journals list to locate your journal, as many Ovid journals are also listed here.  If the Ovid journal you require is not listed on the NHS A-Z, then please email journals@sgul.ac.uk.

Image

OrthoEvidence (www.myorthoevidence.com) is a search tool that focuses specifically on presenting high-quality evidence from within the field of orthopaedics.  Visit the website to see latest evidence published in a range of orthopaedic related journals.  Once you have registered with the site (free to join) you will have access to the full text of any reports featured on the site.

The website is designed to save the clinician time by

  • searching for randomized controlled trials and meta-analyses in over 60 orthopaedic journals each month,
  • critically appraising each included article,
  • creating a unique summary report (Advanced Clinical Evidence Report) which highlights the important take-home information.

This new resource is now also listed on our Evidence Based Resources page, click on the link to browse more resources available to help you find the best evidence.
