Literature Search Guide

Interested in research publication but still in the researching stage? Check out the below guide!

This guide was created to walk a user through a literature search as it relates to EBM: from creating a search question from a basic need (clinical or research) to searching the literature, to evaluating and applying the medical literature to your question. It is also great for those who simply need a refresher: skip ahead to tabs covering basic and advanced search strategies

Dr. DeDonno

Dr. DeDonno's website promotes the field of experimental research. As such, he goes into depth regarding the entire research process, as well as exploring statistics, and disseminating your work with society. 

Residents can also reach him via email at
