Reports on the most highly cited journal articles published by GW faculty in 2011 are now available on the Himmelfarb Library's Faculty Publications webpage .

There are three reports, one each for the School of Medicine and Health Sciences, School of Public Health and Health Services, and School of Nursing. The reports were compiled by taking the titles of papers published in 2011 from the faculty publications database and entering the titles in Scopus on 9/7/12 and sorting the results by citation count. The faculty publications database is a compilation of citations to journal articles, books, book chapters, reports, and audiovisual materials published by both full and part time faculty in the School of Medicine and Health Sciences, School of Public Health and Health Services, and School of Nursing. Citations are identified from periodic searches of the library databases: MEDLINE, Scopus, CINAHL, PsycINFO, Global Health, SPORTDiscus, and Health Policy Reference Center, using a combination of zip code and name of institution in the address fields. Citations from books were forwarded from the library's acquisitions department.

Himmelfarb Library is pleased to announce that more online resources are now optimized for use on mobile devices.  Health Information @ Himmelarb, CINAHL with Full-Text, Health Policy Reference Center, and SportDISCUS with Full-Text are now designed to automatically detect Smartphones and tablet computers and provide a search interface designed for mobile devices.  Apple iPads will continue to access the complete desktop version of these resources.

The updated mobile interface is tailor-made for the smaller screens of mobile devices and provides the most important search and retrieval features and functionality right in the palm of your hand.  Mobile device users now have access to the same user-friendly and easy-to-use search experience that is available online.

For more information, please access our guide to Mobile/Handheld Resources or ask us!
