Need help publishing in scholarly journals? The publication support service, offered by the Medical Library, is available to support the research and publishing activities of Yale’s biomedical community. The suite of services includes assistance in the areas of publishing; researching, writing and submitting papers. For personal assistance with your publishing needs, please contact library staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
An autoalert is a search strategy saved and automatically run each time the database is updated. This allows you to construct a search and receive regular updates of the most current articles on your topic. Any new citations will be emailed directly to you.
Compare the two citation managers supported by the Library; EndNote and RefWorks.
