Health informatics publication trends in Saudi Arabia: a bibliometric analysis over the last twenty-four years
CONCLUSIONS: The years of 2000-2009 may be seen as an infancy stage of the HI field in Saudi Arabia. Exploring how the Saudi Arabian MOH's e-Health initiatives may influence research is valuable for advancing the field. Data exchange and interoperability, artificial intelligence, and intelligent health enterprises might be future research directions in Saudi Arabia.PMID:34285665 | PMC:PMC8270356 | DOI:10.5195/jmla.2021.1072 (Source: Journal of the Medical Library Association : JMLA)

Exploring data management content in doctoral nursing handbooks
CONCLUSIONS: Nursing doctoral program handbooks primarily address collecting and analyzing data during student projects. Findings suggest limited education about, and inclusion of, DM life cycle content, especially within DNP programs.

The NICE OECD countries' geographic search filters: Part 1-methodology for developing the draft MEDLINE and Embase (Ovid) filters
CONCLUSION: The draft filters look promising-they reduced search result volumes while retaining most OECD country evidence from MEDLINE and Embase.

We have created final versions of the search filters and will validate them in a future study.PMID:34285668 | PMC:PMC8270368 | DOI:10.5195/jmla.2021.978 (Source: Journal of the Medical Library Association : JMLA)

Overlaps of multiple database retrieval and citation tracking in dementia care research: a methodological study
CONCLUSIONS: Our results can contribute to enhancing future search practice related to database selection in dementia care research. However, due to limited generalizability, researchers and librarians should carefully choose databases based on the research question. More research on optimal database retrieval in dementia care research is required for the development of methodological standards.PMID:34285670 | PMC:PMC8270360 | DOI:10.5195/jmla.2021.1129 (Source: Journal of the Medical Library Association : JMLA)

Understanding the information-seeking behavior of pharmacy college faculty, staff, and students: implications for improving embedded librarian services
CONCLUSIONS: The close proximity of a physically embedded librarian is beneficial to users and positions the librarian to provide proactive assistance in the existing user information-seeking behavior environment. While some users do not seek assistance, the embedded librarian can provide proactive assistance in such areas as making users aware of other database options and helping them choose relevant databases and effectively manage information.PMID:34285671 | PMC:PMC8270354 | DOI:10.5195/jmla.2021.950 (Source: Journal of the Medical Library Association : JMLA)

Updating search strategies for literature reviews with OUR2D2: an open-source computer application
CONCLUSIONS: OUR2D2 could be useful for individuals seeking to update literature review strategies across fields without rescreening articles from previous searches. Because the OUR2D2 source code is freely available with a permissive license, we recommend this application for researchers conducting literature reviews who need to update their search results over time, want a powerful and flexible analysis framework, and may not have access to paid subscription tools.PMID:34285675 | PMC:PMC8270383 | DOI:10.5195/jmla.2021.1105 (Source: Journal of the Medical Library Association : JMLA)

Discoverability of information on clinical trial data-sharing platforms
CONCLUSIONS: More work is needed to improve the discoverability, transparency, and utility of information on clinical trial data-sharing platforms. Increasing the amount of dataset preview information available to users could considerably improve the discoverability and utility of clinical trial data.PMID:34285666 | PMC:PMC8270348 | DOI:10.5195/jmla.2021.992 (Source: Journal of the Medical Library Association : JMLA)

Exploring data management content in doctoral nursing handbooks
CONCLUSIONS: Nursing doctoral program handbooks primarily address collecting and analyzing data during student projects. Findings suggest limited education about, and inclusion of, DM life cycle content, especially within DNP programs. Collaboration between nursing faculty and librarians and nursing and library professional organizations is needed to advance the adoption of DM best practices for preparing students in their future roles as clinicians and scholars.PMID:34285667 | PMC:PMC8270346 | DOI:10.5195/jmla.2021.1115 (Source: Journal of the Medical Library Association : JMLA)

The NICE OECD countries' geographic search filters: Part 1-methodology for developing the draft MEDLINE and Embase (Ovid) filters
CONCLUSION: The draft filters look promising-they reduced search result volumes while retaining most OECD country evidence from MEDLINE and Embase. However, we advise caution when using them in topics about both non-OECD and OECD countries. We have created final versions of the search filters and will validate them in a future study.PMID:34285668 | PMC:PMC8270368 | DOI:10.5195/jmla.2021.978 (Source: Journal of the Medical Library Association : JMLA)

Overlaps of multiple database retrieval and citation tracking in dementia care research: a methodological study
CONCLUSIONS: Our results can contribute to enhancing future search practice related to database selection in dementia care research. However, due to limited generalizability, researchers and librarians should carefully choose databases based on the research question. More research on optimal database retrieval in dementia care research is required for the development of methodological standards.PMID:34285670 | PMC:PMC8270360 | DOI:10.5195/jmla.2021.1129 (Source: Journal of the Medical Library Association : JMLA)

Understanding the information-seeking behavior of pharmacy college faculty, staff, and students: implications for improving embedded librarian services
CONCLUSIONS: The close proximity of a physically embedded librarian is beneficial to users and positions the librarian to provide proactive assistance in the existing user information-seeking behavior environment. While some users do not seek assistance, the embedded librarian can provide proactive assistance in such areas as making users aware of other database options and helping them choose relevant databases and effectively manage information.PMID:34285671 | PMC:PMC8270354 | DOI:10.5195/jmla.2021.950 (Source: Journal of the Medical Library Association : JMLA)

Medical librarians' knowledge and practices in locating clinical trials for systematic reviews
DISCUSSION: Medical librarians indicated that while they felt confident in their searching skills, they did not have a definitive source of information about the various types of clinical trials, and their responses demonstrated a clear need and desire for more information on study design methodology.PMID:34285672 | PMC:PMC8270353 | DOI:10.5195/jmla.2021.1144 (Source: Journal of the Medical Library Association : JMLA)
