The Literature Search Service is designed for Temple University Health Sciences or Temple University Hospital faculty or staff who plan to publish their review. The service includes a variety of review types.
Please Note: The Literature Search Service requires a brief consultation with a librarian and the completion of our protocol form. To get started please complete the TEMPLE REVIEW PROTOCOL FORM. *Researchers are expected to provide librarian co-authorship for our substantial contributions allowing the librarian to have input in the manuscript as per ICMJE recommendations http://www.icmje.org/recommendations/.
