Journal Articles Online
Access to Databases & Full-text Journals
The LSUHSC Library in New Orleans is now an institutional member of BioMed
Central, publisher of open-access peer-reviewed online journals.
Articles appear in BioMed Central journals soon after manuscripts are
accepted, and authors retain copyright to their articles. All of the BioMed
Central journals are available free online and are indexed in PubMed with
links to the full-text. Because of the library membership in BioMed
Central, LSUHSC authors are exempt from the $500.00 processing fee for each
article accepted for publication.
of the 80+ journals is BMC
Oral Health, which publishes original research articles in the
prevention, diagnosis and management of disorders of the mouth, teeth
and gums, as well as related molecular genetics, pathophysiology, and
epidemiology. Take advantage of the LSUHSC membership and submit your next research article to this peer-reviewed journal.
This membership will be monitored for
LSUHSC publications and will be discontinued if not used. The membership
is partially paid for by the South Central Academic Medical Libraries

Databases for LSUHSC Searchers
Many of the databases
available to LSUHSC users result from the library's membership in LOUIS,
a consortium of Louisiana academic libraries. Among the
significant changes that LOUIS made this year to its list of subscriptions
was the addition of EBSCOhost,
an aggregator of databases. Biological Abstracts, ERIC, and PsychInfo
are familiar databases to LSUHSC searchers; they were previously searched via
Ovid. A number of other databases in EBSCOhost, such as Serials Directory,
which replaced Ulrich's, Academic Search Premier, with full-text to 4,000 scholarly
publications, and Clinical Pharmacology, are new to LSUHSC.
currently in Ovid are MEDLINE,
MEDLINE In-Process & Other Non-Indexed
Citations, Health & Psychosocial Instruments, Mental Measurements
Yearbook, Journals@Ovid Full Text, and Your Journals@Ovid.
MEDLINE In-Process & Other Non-Indexed Citations, previously called
PreMEDLINE, has new entries to
the database that have not yet been indexed with medical subject headings
as well as non-indexed articles not related to biomedicine.
