Google add-in: this is currently not functional and should not be used.
RefWorks Citation Manager (RCM) is highly problematic and should only be used for Mac 2016 users. For Mac 2016 users, RefWorks recommends writing the document as unformatted text (i.e. don't run Track Changes) and creating a second document for tables, images, etc. After you've finished using Reference Citation Manager, create a document which combines the text and other materials and uses document templates, if needed.
WriteNCite for Mac: functional; available if users still have Word 2011.
WriteNCite for PCs : functional (works with most modern versions of Office including 2016)
QuickCite works but the user must manage the in-text citations so not useful for numbered citation styles - e.g. AMA
For RefWorks (legacy), WriteNCite for Macs and PCs is functional. One Line/Cite is also functional works for Mac 2016 users.
Are you on the research track? Thinking of publishing in a scholarly journal? If so, this workshop may be of interest to you!
Having one (or more) scholarly profiles can help you benchmark your publications compared to other researchers in your field, and track the impact of your scholarship. We will discuss ResearchGate, ORCID, and other scholarly profiling tools; participants will be invited to sign up for these accounts and to explore the tools and metrics they provide. We'll discuss pros and cons of these tools and share best practices.
This session is interactive, so participants are encouraged to bring their laptop or mobile device.

This month, the Genetics Journal Club features a double-blind randomized clinical trial which compared the use of a third-generation irreversible EGFR-TKI (osimertinib) versus standard therapy (gefitinib or erlotinib) to treat non small-cell lung cancer. You can read the results of this study in the New England Journal of Medicine.

Want to study heart and lung anatomy? Do you want an interactive anatomy atlas on your iPad? Himmelfarb has the Visible Body Anatomy Atlas for you!
Visible Body Human Anatomy Atlas provides a new way to study and explore anatomy. This online anatomy atlas allows you to view specific structures and layers from head to toe, rotate anatomical models, and explore systemic and regional anatomy.
Visible Body Human Anatomy Atlas includes 5,000+ medically accurate anatomical structures and was developed by medically trained illustrators and reviewed by anatomists. This atlas allows you to explore human anatomy via multiple approaches: systemic anatomy, regional anatomy, cross sections, senses, and muscle actions.
To install, download the app from an on-campus location (or from off-campus while you have Cisco AnyConnect turned 'on'). To maintain access to the app, open your Visible Body app while on-campus or while off-campus and connected via Cisco AnyConnect at least every 150 days.
