Next PNR Rendezvous is about PubMed Commons

“Leveraging PubMed Commons for Medical Librarians” is the next PNR Rendezvous session. When: October 18 starting at 1:00pm PT, Noon Alaska, 2:00pm MT Medical librarians play an important role in the evaluation and dissemination of credible life/biomedical sciences information. Peer-review is part of this process. However, peer-review is not an infallible process. In an age of open science, there is a need for open review and information exchange opportunities that extend beyond the traditional published formats. Providing a channel and an audience for open post-publication communication is one way to achieve this ideal. In October 2013, the National Library of Medicine introduced PubMed Commons, a social media pilot program promoting post-publication discourse. The program became an official feature of PubMed in December 2015. Authors whose publications are indexed in PubMed are invited to comment on other authors’ work and participate in open information exchange. Even in its early state, PubMed Commons is impacting the medical library community by providing useful information that reaches beyond traditional metrics and aids in identifying quality, credible medical information. This webinar will update you on what types of conversations are happening on PubMed Commons and provide tips to help you search for PubMed Commons comments in PubMed. No registration required. Learn how to connect. Worth 1 MLA CE for attending the live session or watching the recording.
