      • New OvidSP Interface – Five (5) Pros & Cons, Part I
      • Interrogating OvidSP as Paradigm-Shift

ovidsp things to remember
OvidSP: Things to Remember…
  • Basic Search tab
    • Search preference is for using natural language or entering a full query
    • Natural Language Processing (NLP) is a ‘quick and relevant’ search - designed to find the relevant results, not all results
      • Anything less than a 4 star result is probably not relevant so do NOT get caught up in the number or results returned (we only bring back a target of 500)
    • Beyond a search for the Novice/Google user, view it as another tool you have to help you with your daily job
      • Great for Validation
      • Great for Discovery
      • Better Multi-file Searching
  • Find More at:
