Recent Interesting Articles from TCRN Members

15 November 2018

In this monthly article the TCRN Operations & Projects team use on-line tools to identify publications attributed to TCRN members. We are using Scopus, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature as our primary source.

A “Scopus alert” has been created for any TCRN member who has been an author on a peer-reviewed publication. New results arrive weekly from Scopus, allowing us to create a database of all member publications for the year and then share some recent examples with the TCRN members each month.

Some examples of recent member publications can be seen below. Most university based members will be able to go directly to the article using the links below. Unfortunately hospital based members may be blocked by firewalls and we are unable to find a fix for this problem. Any member who is interested in reading one of these papers but is unable to access them can email and request a PDF copy.
