    DATABASE SEARCHING SKILLS : PEER REVIEW : DATABASE SELECTION : DIFFICULT TOPICS TO RESEARCH: Coupling a Dance with Discovery Services or Social Work Citation Analysis with Engineering : Improving Ones Database Searching Skills with Database Knowledge

    David P. Dillard
     

    Many students, teachers and professionals have difficulty finding answers and relevant sources for their research questions. Part of this problem is caused because database and search engine users have not learned what each search tool does and does not do and how to make the search tools do things that are not options on the links they provide for narrowing or modifying a search. For example, Google Scholar does not provide links to narrow searches to specific types of publications such as "peer reviewed", "qualitative research", "quantitative research" or "evidence based", but one can add these, any or all of them, in a search statement to require that the results found from the search have any or all of these qualities.
    Some found sources will have these qualities after a search, others will mention these phrases for other reasons. But including peer reviewed as one of the search terms is likely, for example, to find some or most of the results are from peer reviewed journals. Two discovery services from ProQuest that are available to all internet users from at least some of the subscribers have peer reviewed as a limiting opition for search results. This is a stronger option than including peer reviewed in the search strategy. Proquest also owns Ulrich's Periodicals Directory which indicates if a journal is referred (i.e peer reviewed). Proquest is probably using this data in Ulrich's as an authority file to determine which journal articles in Summon and Primo are peer reviewed.


    I came across a request to know if there were peer reviewed articles about a specific dance as a college professor requires peer reviewed articles about such dances as sources in a writing assignment, so I sent these links to the client.

    Penn State Summon Search

    http://tinyurl.com/y8ckvygn

    .


    Temple Primo Search

    http://tinyurl.com/yawhl8rs

    .


    Google Scholar

    http://tinyurl.com/yd647tyj


    The top two links in this case are clearly the most important.
    If you want to search other dances, simply change the name of the dance in each search and click on the peer reviewed link on the left sidebar in Summon and Primo and add it as a search term in Google Scholar.


    Knowledge of databases also extends, among many other things, to whether a database only indexes the core journals in the specific discipline it covers or finds related content in journals outside its field or goes even wider than that and indexes content irrelevant to its field from seemingly irrevant journals. Clearly the wider a databases coverage, the better the chances on will find sources on topics on the borderline or beyond of a subject discipline focused database.

    In this regard, consider this journal article citation from the Inspec database.

    "Inspec: Engineering Research Database

    Inspec, a comprehensive engineering research database provides the academic, industry, and government sectors with an intuitive, searchable engineering database that covers a wide variety of fields. Inspec provides engineering research information on physics, electrical engineering and electronics, computers and control, mechanical, production engineering, information technology and more."

    https://www.elsevier.com/solutions/engineering-village/content/inspec


    The citation found in INSPEC

    Finding citations to social work literature: the relative benefits of using web of science, scopus, or google scholar
    Lasda Bergman, E.M. (Bibliographer for Social Welfare, Gerontology & Dewey Reference, Univ. at Albany, Albany, NY, United States)
    Source: Journal of Academic Librarianship, v 38, n 6, p 370-9, Nov. 2012
    Database:Inspec

    Searching this article title so important to social work faculty and graduate students, not to mention those in related fields like psychology or sociology in Social Work Abstracts or Social Services Abstracts finds a null result as the Journal of Academic Librarianship is apparently irrelevant to social work in the judgement of the producers of these databases.

    This means sources that are important to your research will often not be found in a databases where they "should" be found but will be found in databases that are unlikely sources for this content. One type of database, the general all topic database, is an extremely important place to look for such sources. Google Scholar, Google Books, Google, and Penn State Summon when one looks at all Summon Libraries using a link to search beyond Penn State for Summon citations. Google Scholar, Google Books, Summon and Primo are important tools for finding scholarly research articles and books that cross interdisciplinary lines of the search topic.

    Also one must be aware of changes in how databases work and often in the case of Google this is not for the better.

    Google Uncle Sam, a valuable database of United States government sources, often full text, was eliminated

    Google Blog search was also eliminated

    Google News Archive that want back with news reports for over two centuries was eliminated and then later replaces with just the newspaper content Google itself had digitized.

    Google News no longer covers news reports from 2000 to the present, but is now little more than a daily news source with only the current day's news.

    Just in the last week or two, using Google Scholar, one must select Artcles or Case Law on the outside page forcing one to save their search strategy on Word, Notepad or the like and reuse it inside Google Scholar and then returning to Google Scholar

    http://scholar.google.com

    and back inside rather than switching inside with a search already done.

    Also one no longer can click on CITE to get source citations in six formats, one must click on a quotation mark to get the same result.

    Google Scholar Citation Example

    BOOK AND FILM REVIEWS: Revolutionary View of the History of Science: The Structure of Scientific Revolutions TS Kuhn - The Physics Teacher, 1970 - aapt.scitation.org Our nevv FKB-120 l ntroductory Kit cornbines fluid mechanics and digital logic to demonstrate practical fluidic circuits. It's an ideal way to introduce students to the nevv discipline of fluidics, the fast-growing technology now recognized as the practical solution to Cited by 97751 Related articles All 88 versions Library Search

    On the left side of the bottom line one finds the quotation mark which when clicked provides six citation options incluing MLA and APA

    One also finds a left bracket on the right side of this line that links directly to the free web version of Worldcat which amongst other things provides the user with a list of libraries that own the source cited in Google Books for publications with a Worldcat record. Right handed brackets in the same location provide a "cached record" from another source for the item in the Google Scholar citation.

    In short, relearning is a big part of database search skill learning.

    Microsoft Adds Automatic Alt Description to MS-Word

    By John Eric Brandt.

    "Apparently in the latest iteration of MS-Office 365, the Word
    application now provides some 'assistance' when entering an
    image/picture to a document by creating some suggested Alternative
    Description language and a dialog box asking you, 'How would you
    describe this picture and its contents to someone who is blind? (1 - 2
    sentences recommended).' Then it gives you a recommended Alt
    description (not very sophisticated, I might add) which you can/should

    Teaching Social Psychology Newsletter





    Vol. 17, No. 1



    September 29, 2017


    _________________________________________________________


    the e-mail newsletter accompanying the
    Resources for the Teaching of Social Psychology website at
    http://jfmueller.faculty.noctrl.edu/crow





    I hope your academic year is off to a good start.  Since it is a new year, let me try something new.  If any of you
    would like to co-develop with me any of the sections of the newsletter or the website let me know.  That could
    include any of the instructional categories such as Activities and Exercises or Technology in Teaching, or it could
    include any of the topical categories such as Attraction and Relationships or Conformity.  If you are interested
    let me know and we can talk about what that would look like.






    Activities and Exercises


              Aggression/The Self:  Why hurting others might feel good

              https://www.psychologicalscience.org/observer/teaching-current-directions-in-psychological-science-40#hu
    rtfulness

              http://davidchester.weebly.com/uploads/5/4/1/5/54152559/cdps_posaffectaggression.pdf

              Some possible activities around a recent Current Directions article -- the second link is to the Current
    Directions article.


              General: Speed reviewing

              http://teachpsych.org/page-1703896/5031179

              Ziv Bell shared a technique he uses in his courses to help students review material that is based on the
    concept of speed dating.  Sometimes he gives them a time limit for each pairing, and sometimes he does not.  He
    says it works both ways.

    Ziv says, "What I do find helps (and you can feel free to re-word this as you see fit) is (1) for the instructor to
    participate as well, (2) to make sure that students have a list of terms/concepts they can review, which could come
    from a study guide, the glossary/summary of the book chapter, etc., (3) to have students move to a part of the
    classroom they can easily move around, which could be the front or sides of a traditional lecture hall, for
    example, and (4) for the instructor to model introducing themselves to another student, asking "Can you tell me
    about ..." and saying thank you before parting ways and introducing themselves to another student. I find in a
    class of about 60 students this activity works well for between 5-10 minutes."


              Social Judgment: Believing and maintaining misconceptions

              https://www.psychologicalscience.org/observer/teaching-current-directions-in-psychological-science-40#mi
    ssion










    Examples

    team

              https://www.nytimes.com/2014/03/07/world/asia/kashmir-students-sedition-cricket.html?mcubz=1&_r=0


              Prejudice: Reducing institutional racism

    nkushpmg00000009

              "In a poignant defense of equality, the United States Air Force Academy's superintendent made it crystal
    clear that the institution will not tolerate any form of disrespectful behavior toward someone of another race or
    gender."

              

     The Self:  Reactance

     What's the allure of pumpkin spice latte this time of year?

    Conflict & Peacemaking:  "Cooperation driven by reciprocity, not conformity"

    https://www.psychologicalscience.org/news/releases/cooperation-driven-by-reciprocity-not-conformity.html

    "New research suggests that reciprocity - cooperation under the assumption that we will receive
    benefits in return - outweighs our desire to conform with group norms when we are deciding whether to
    cooperate with someone."


    Conflict & Peacemaking/Prejudice: Who names a group?  Who generates its euphemisms?

    http://www.everydaysociologyblog.com/2017/09/the-nuances-of-naming.html

    http://wesa.fm/post/meet-man-helping-pittsburgh-police-confront-their-racial-biases#stream/0

    Here is a good article in the APA Monitor describing the application of social psychological research
    to the New Orleans police force.  The second link is to an interview of someone who is similarly
    applying social psych research to help the "Pittsburgh police confront their racial biases."  It is a
    testament to these two men that they can manage their emotions well enough to work on such challenging
    problems.  (I'm trying to get in on the above twitter thread.)

    Pittsburgh Steelers' head coach, by allowing his team to stay in the locker room during the national

    By Christian Heilmann.

    "…A lot of 'CSS is not real programming' arguments are a basic
    misunderstanding what CSS is there to achieve. If you want full
    control over and interface and strive for pixel perfection - don't use
    it. If you want to build an interface for an inclusive and diverse
    web, CSS is a great tool. Writing CSS is describing interfaces and
    needs empathy with the users. It is not about turning a Photoshop file

    Does Accessibility Slow Down the Development Process?

    By Andrea Fercia.

    "I've been focusing on web accessibility for a few years now. One of
    the complaints I've often heard from business owners and managers is
    that implementing accessibility is hard and slows down the development
    process. For this reason, sometimes accessibility gets postponed or
    set aside in the erroneous belief that's something that can be 'added'
    later. Here, I'd like to share my thoughts on why I think the first
    statement is misleading. I'll also discuss why postponing
    accessibility is an ineffective process that can add a considerable
    amount of time to your development process."

    Auto-Captions vs. Editing Auto-Captions vs. Re-Captioning in Post-Production

    By Patrick Loftus.

    "…for organizations that want to both accommodate the needs of those
    who watch video without sound and those who cannot hear, it is in
    their best interests to seek the most efficient and scalable
    captioning solution that works for their purposes. Whether it's
    in-house, through a third-party service, or a combination of both,
    what matters most is that your process produces captions that are
    accurate and high-quality."

    up with great naming systems and methodologies, even the ones I don't
    necessarily agree with. They're all aiming to make that overlap of
    HTML and CSS less painful. But the really hard problem is where people

    By James (Jim) R. Lewis and Jeff Sauro.

    "…Because a distinction based on item tone is of little practical or

    and researchers treat the SUS as a unidimensional measure of perceived

    "The tools we design with have a unique effect on the way we work,
    constraining and empowering us while we explore, examine and create.
    Variable fonts give us a new, wide open typographic space with which
    to work. Instead of prescribing value to individual UI elements in a
    vacuum, we should take a hybrid and calculated approach to variable
    font interfaces. How do we structure our design tools to adapt to the

    Reply to "Building Accessible Single Page Apps"

    By Dennis Lembrée.

    "For dynamic screen changes in an SPA, I highly recommend setting
    focus to the region with new content, preferably to a top-level
    heading within the new content. An ARIA live region will read new
    content to a screen reader user but the keyboard focus will remain in
    a illogical location on the screen, and very often focus will be lost
    entirely since content is removed. Reading out all the new content may
    also be overwhelming for the user."

    GOOGLE NEWS: Unexpected Well Hidden Version of Google News

    David P. Dillard
     
    Edited

    *


    Google News until recently provided a searchable and powerful archive of news reports, possibly going back to the year 2000.
    In a recent move to make Google News more accessible to mobile devices, it was claimed, this service has morphed to a weak
    presentation of current news stories from today's or very recent news.
     
    Consider Google News search results for a search of Sports Medicine.

    But this is a side light.

    Just after the changes to Google News, I discovered that my old links to the old Google News brought up the search results in the
    old Google News and I have been using such a link to produce this result. This link to a search of "fake news" brings up this set of results today.


    http://tinyurl.com/zc7bfua

    About 6,270,000 results (0.62 seconds)

    Numbered links at the bottom show the results of the fake news search

    But the plot thickens.  Today I tested biology as a science topic in current Google News.



    "biology eoc washington"

    and this resulted in this error message with two powerful and surprising links from Google.


    Your search - "biology eoc washington" - did not match any documents
    Suggestions:


    https://www.google.com/#q=biology%20eoc%20washington&tbm=nws&tbs=nrt:b



    In the resulting "Google News Archive Search, change the search to biology (or whatever you want) and here is the result for biology


    sults (0.43 seconds) 
     


    This message and these links came directly from Google and not from an old link I had online.  Furthermore a search of Blogs is also facilitated here.

    In addition, the search that results from these links can be changed to whatever one wants to search for in Google News old style or Google Blog Search.

    This is not by any means the Google News Archive that shows up if one searches for Google News Archive in Google.

    Critical Development Considerations for Mobile Application Accessibility

    By Sanjay Nasta and Paul J. Adam.

    "Does mobile accessibility matter? Mobile has revolutionized how all
    of us use the internet. For people with disabilities, however, these

    them have accessibility for the disabled built into their

    more tool-versed developers to solve problems we only have because of
    Bootstrap, jQuery, Less, and all those other tools..."

    Abstract:

    Management of type 2 diabetes mellitus aims to maintain a normal glycemic status, which if not, 
    it may lead to acute and/or chronic diabetic complications. Earlier studies found Lipocalin-2 
    elevated in complications associated with type 2 diabetes mellitus such as ischemic heart disease. 
    These lipocalin-2 changes had been linked to obesity and uncontrolled diabetes. So, it could be 
    useful to understand the effect of glycemic control and obesity on lipocalin-2.

    Abstract:

    Cardiovascular disease (CVD) complications are important causes of morbidity and mortality 
    after orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). There is currently no preoperative risk assessment 
    tool that allows physicians to estimate the risk for CVD events following OLT. We sought to 
    develop a point-based prediction model (risk score) for CVD complications after OLT, the 
    CAR-OLT risk score, among a cohort of 1024 consecutive patients aged 18-75 years who 
    underwent first OLT in a tertiary-care teaching hospital (2002-2011). The main outcome measures 
     were major 1-year CVD complications, defined as death from a CVD cause or hospitalization for a 
    major CVD event (myocardial infarction, revascularization, heart failure, atrial fibrillation, cardiac 
    arrest, pulmonary embolism, and/or stroke). The bootstrap method yielded bias-corrected 95% 
     confidence intervals for the regression coefficients of the final model.Among 1024 first OLT 
    recipients, major CVD complications occurred in 329 (32.1%). Variables selected for inclusion in 
    the model (using model optimization strategies) included pre-operative recipient age, sex, race, 
    employment status, education status, history of hepatocellular carcinoma, diabetes, heart failure, 
    atrial fibrillation, pulmonary or systemic hypertension, and respiratory failure. The discriminative 
     performance of the CAR-OLT point-based score (C statistic=0.78, bias-corrected C statistic=0.77) 
    was superior to other published risk models for postoperative CVD morbidity and mortality, and it 
    had appropriate calibration (Hosmer-Lemeshow p=0.33).

    Journal of Spinal Cord Medicine. 2017 Jul 13:1-16. [Epub ahead of print].

    Abstract:

    Context Endocrine-metabolic disease (EMD) risk following spinal cord injury (SCI) is associated 
    with significant multi-morbidity (i.e. fracture, diabetes, heart disease), mortality, and economic burden. 
    It is unclear to what extent rehabilitation interventions can modify EMD risk and improve health status 
    in community-dwelling adults with chronic SCI. Objectives To characterize rehabilitation interventions 
    and summarize evidence on their efficacy/effectiveness to modify precursors to EMD risk in 
    community-dwelling adults with chronic SCI. Methods Systematic searches of MEDLINE PubMed, 
     EMBASE Ovid, CINAHL, CDSR, and PsychInfo were completed. All randomized, quasi-experimental, 
    and prospective controlled trials comparing rehabilitation/therapeutic interventions with control/placebo 
    interventions in adults with chronic SCI were eligible. Two authors independently selected studies and 
    abstracted data. Mean differences of change from baseline were reported for EMD risk outcomes. 
    The GRADE approach was used to rate the quality of evidence. Results Of 489 articles identified, 
    16 articles (11 studies; n=396) were eligible for inclusion. No studies assessed the effects of rehabilitation 
    interventions on incident fragility fractures, heart disease, and/or diabetes. Individual studies reported that 
    exercise and/or nutrition interventions could improve anthropometric indices, body composition/adiposity, 
    and biomarkers. However, there were also reports of non-statistically significant between-group differences. 
    Conclusions There was very low-quality evidence that rehabilitation interventions can improve precursors to 
    EMD risk in community-dwelling adults with chronic SCI. The small number of studies, imprecise estimates, 
     and inconsistency across studies limited our ability to make conclusions. A high-quality longitudinal 
    intervention trial is needed to inform community-based rehabilitation strategies for EMD risk after chronic SCI.

    of cardiometabolic diseases was investigated. Results/methodology: Assayed MIF protein from 1225 adults 
    was cross-sectionally analyzed. MIF was independently inversely associated with age, total testosterone 
    and positively with high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol. In men MIF correlation with age, testosterone and 
    waist circumference converted from inverse in the upper to positive in the bottom MIF third. Both metabolic 
    syndrome and diabetes were significantly associated, in combined gender, with the intermediate (vs the highest) 
    MIF tertile at an odds ratio 1.6. Coronary heart disease was not significantly related with MIF in either gender.

    Abstract:

    Diabetic patients are at an increased risk of developing heart failure when compared to their 
     non-diabetic counter parts. Accumulative evidence suggests chronic hyperglycemia to be 
    central in the development of myocardial infarction in these patients. At present, there are 
    limited therapies aimed at specifically protecting the diabetic heart at risk from 
    hyperglycemia-induced injury. Oxidative stress, through over production of free radical 
    species, has been hypothesized to alter mitochondrial function and abnormally augment the 
     activity of the NADPH oxidase enzyme system resulting in accelerated myocardial injury within 
    a diabetic state. This has led to a dramatic increase in the exploration of plant-derived materials 
    known to possess antioxidative properties. Several edible plants contain various natural 
     
    constituents, including polyphenols that may counteract oxidative-induced tissue damage through 
    their modulatory effects of intracellular signaling pathways. Rooibos, an indigenous South African 
    plant, well-known for its use as herbal tea, is increasingly studied for its metabolic benefits. 
     Prospective studies linking diet rich in polyphenols from rooibos to reduced diabetes associated 
    cardiovascular complications have not been extensively assessed. Aspalathin, a flavonoid, and 
    phenylpyruvic acid-2-O-β-D-glucoside, a phenolic precursor, are some of the major compounds 
     found in rooibos that can ameliorate hyperglycemia-induced cardiomyocyte damage in vitro. 
    While the latter has demonstrated potential to protect against cell apoptosis, the proposed 
    mechanism of action of aspalathin is linked to its capacity to enhance the expression of nuclear 
    factor (erythroid-derived 2)-like 2 (Nrf2) expression, an intracellular antioxidant response element. 
    Thus, here we review literature on the potential cardioprotective properties of flavonoids and a 
    phenylpropenoic acid found in rooibos against diabetes-induced oxidative injury.

    artery disease (CAD) risk factors. Alarmingly, the prevalence of MetS risk factors are increasing and 
    a leading cause for mortality. In the vasculature, complications from MetS and type 2 diabetes (T2D) 
    can be divided into microvascular (retinopathy and nephropathy) and macrovascular (cardiovascular 
    diseases and erectile dysfunction). In addition to vascular and endothelial dysfunction, vascular 
    remodeling and stiffness are also hallmarks of cardiovascular disease (CVD), and well-characterized 
    vascular changes that are observed in the early stages of hypertension, T2D, and obesity [1-3]. In the 
    heart, the link between obstructive atherosclerosis of coronary macrovessels and myocardial ischemia 
    (MI) is well established. However, recent studies show that abnormalities in the coronary microcirculation 
    are associated with functional and structural changes in coronary microvessels (classically defined as 
    being ≤150-200μm internal diameter), which may cause or contribute to MI even in the absence of obstractive 
    CAD. This suggests a prognostic value of an abnormal coronary microcirculation as an early sub-clinical 
     culprit in the pathogenesis and progression of heart disease in T2D and MetS. The aim of this review is to 
    summarize recent studies investigating the coronary microvascular remodeling in an early 
     pre-atherosclerotic phase of MetS and T2D, and to explore potential mechanisms associated with the 
    timing of coronary microvascular remodeling relative to that of the macrovasculature.

    Abstract:

    The AKI in intensive care has been widely treated by international and national guidelines. 
    The treatment of AKI in patients not requiring admission in Intensive Care Unit, but often 
    hospitalized in Nephrology Unit, it is showed of less relevance. For over 5 years we have 
    used for the treatment of AKI of patients admitted in Nephrology Unit an intermittent slow 
    technique, implemented in approximately 600 patients with AKI for a total of about 3000 
    treatments. In this study we report the clinical results obtained in 100 consecutive patients 
    referred to our Nephrology Unit from 1st January 2014. We excluded the patients with AKI 
    and lactic acidosis by metformin, which were treated with CVVHDF. The Dialysis Protocol 
    provides a slow low efficiency intermittent treatment called SLE-HDF 
    (Sustained Low Efficiency Hemo-Dia-Filtration), with 10-hour duration, 1.5 L/h dialysate for a 
    patient up to 75 kg, 2 L/h up to 85 kg, 2.5 L/h over 85 kg. Half of the dialysate was used in 
    convention in post and half in diffusion. Endpoints were the recovery of renal function and 
    the survival of the patient. On each patient was calculated on at least one seat, the Kt/V urea 
    (UKt/V). Were studied 100 patients, 45 females and 55 males, with mean age 79.4 + 11 years. 
    The weight was 74 kg + 18 kg at the start of treatment. The 65% of patients had diuresis 
     < to 500 ml/24 hours. The causes of AKI were: 41% heart failure, 31 % AKI on MRC, 7% 
    rhabdomyolysis, 6% Hepato-renal Syndrome, 4% sepsis, 11 % other causes. 
    Major comorbidities were heart disease (63%), diabetes (50%), COPD (38%), age over 85 years, 
    cancers 23, liver disease 16, hypotension requiring amine 15, sepsis 10. In total in the 
    100 patients, 512 treatments were performed, average 5.12 + 3.7. The mean UKt/V was 0.4 + 0.05 per session. 
    The deaths were 43. Patients discharged were 57. Of these, 43 had a recovery of renal function. 
     Fourteen patients have not recovered renal function and were admitted for chronic dialysis treatment. 
    In conclusion, our protocol of SLE-HDF, which uses volumes of dialysate sharply lower than used in 
    literature, has been shown to be effective in correcting the biochemical profile of the patient with AKI. 
    The clinical results are considered satisfactory, having obtained the improvement in 57% of patients, 
    considering that the 43 deaths, 10 were suffering from Hepato-cirrhosis and 13 from malignant neoplasm. 
    Further studies are needed to confirm our findings.

    Abstract:

    Many teenagers are insufficiently active despite the health benefits of physical activity (PA). 
     There is strong evidence to show that inactivity and low fitness levels increase the risk of 
    non-communicable diseases such as coronary heart disease (CHD),
