Tracking Scholarly Publishing of Hospitals Using MEDLINE, Scopus, WoS and Google Scholar
MetadataShow full item record
Scientific literature focuses on facilitating communication among researchers. Many studies have been conducted to compare effectiveness, coverage, and performance among databases available to researchers and/or librarians. In this study, the authors compared MEDLINE/PubMed, Scopus, Web of Science (WoS), and Google Scholar performance regarding searching for scholarly publishing of institutions such as hospitals. Query searches of scholarly publications of specific hospital personnel run and articles results were compared. Natural language use when authors denote affiliation affects retrieval of scholarly publishing. Effectiveness of searching scholarly publishing of a specific institution is better served when there is concurrent use of many databases.
