Locating “Grey Literature”
Previously recorded on Thursday, 11th March, 2021

Presented By: Michael Fanning, Ovid Training Manager based in Europe

Drug safety and medical device regulators have strict requirements regarding what constitutes an “important source” of information for the purposes of clinical evaluation and post-market surveillance. While information from scientific literature databases such as PubMed, Ovid MEDLINE, Embase and APA PsychINFO still play a dominant role, there is an increasing requirement to consider evidence from other sources, for example, grey literature. However, the questions, what is grey literature, what is its scope and how relevant is it, are questions being currently and actively debated, fueled also by the increasing role of real-world evidence and social media sources.

This Webinar will begin by addressing the question: what is grey literature? And this by looking at a selection of definitions and views from regulators as well as from academic organizations. Considering well established examples of grey literature, the webinar will show why it is important and becoming increasingly so in all areas involving evidence acquisition and evidence synthesis. Using practical examples, the webinar will further demonstrate how grey literature can be located on Ovid. For instance, as a specific type of information already captured by the large scientific databases, e.g. technical reports, news or newspaper articles on Ovid MEDLINE, conference related materials on Embase or dissertations on APA PsychINFO. Or where the database on Ovid is itself regarded as a grey literature resource, for example APA PsycEXTRA. The webinar will conclude with a discussion and questions and answers round.

Michael Fanning is one of the Ovid Training Managers based in Europe. He has a background in medical science and extensive experience in the search and retrieval of information from medical databases and information systems. He has also held specialist courses on information use and re-use in the context of evidence-based medical practice.

Presented By: Ned Potter, an Academic Liaison Librarian, and a Trainer for various organisations

Systematic Reviews - What are they? Where are they? What do they include?
Previously recorded on Tuesday, 22nd September, 2020

Presented By: Michael Fanning, Ovid Training Manager based in Europe

Systematic Reviews are the informational backbone of evidence-based medical practice. Initially, systematic reviews focussed predominantly on the effectiveness of a clinical intervention - as indicated by randomised controlled trials. However, today's researchers are confronted by a wide range of questions for which they also need to review literature systematically, and not only through the lens of clinical effectiveness. Using practical examples run on Ovid MEDLINE and Embase, this webinar will demonstrate the variety of systematic reviews currently under discussion. It will show how to locate them using different search techniques, such as limits, search filters and free-text searching. In conclusion, we will consider what, aside from randomised controlled trials, constitutes a systematic review.
