Bibliographic Literature Search

The Importance of Effective Bibliographic Literature Search

When you want to get your medical research paper published in a powerful journal, then it becomes critical to meet its high standards by raising the quality standards of your own paper. One of the ways to do this is by strengthening your literature review. If you undertake a systematic review, then you may find the most relevant titles to include in your work and discuss your study in a rich context. This can be highly impressive for readers when it is about giving more weightage to your work.

The Obstacles to a Systematic Review

However, it is not easy to do a systematic review after conducting thorough bibliographic literature search. While it is a time-consuming process, it also requires proper guidance from a professional who is experienced to do the task. This is because of the following obstacles you may face while performing bibliographic literature search in a proper manner.

  • As a variety of medical databases are available and all cover varied types of subject areas and information, it can be a complex task to search for the most apt sources.
  • All databases may have their own unique organization that creates hurdles in search for a student who is exploring them for the first time.
  • Several access points like websites and databases are available to locate significant conference proceedings. Thus, one should know how to proceed in the right direction.
  • Many clinical trials registers are also scattered, with no consolidated listing. As these are also specialized, it is very time consuming to locate what you want.
  • As some studies may not be in English language, accessing and translating them may be a huge issue.
  • It is also not easy to find relevant key journals related to your topic area and searching for the most relevant studies in limited time.
