PubMed Central (PMC) Free Articles down

Monday, August 1st, 2016

We are currently experiencing downtime and pdfs from PubMed Central (PMC) are not accessible. We are working to resolve the issue. This outage does not impact our licensed journals are still available through PubMed, and articles we do not own can be requested via ILL as normal. If you need assistance retrieving an article, please contact the library at 315-464-7091 or library@upstate.edu. We may be able to access the article(s) through a different vendor.

From some articles, you may have success retrieving an article using this workaround:

1) When you retrieve an abstract that links to a free PMC article, try using the links to either another vendor if available, or the “Owned by Upstate” link (*note some of the other vendors may still redirect to PMC and result in a dead-end)

 

 

 

 

 

2) If “Owned by Upstate” is selected, try linking to the “article” links from databases other than PubMed Central (PMC)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What is PubMed Central? PMC is a repository of free full text articles, available through PubMed (read more).


PsychiatryOnline.org July Book of the Month

Tuesday, July 5th, 2016

PsychOnline Book of the Month: July 2016

Title: Manual of Clinical Psychopharmacology for Nurses

Edited by Laura G. Leahy, M.S.N., P.M.H.-A.P.R.N., and Christian G. Kohler, M.D.

You can access the Book of the Month from the home page at psychiatryonline.org/books.

The core philosophy of the advanced practice nursing field is that health care should be individualized, focusing not only on patients’ conditions but also on the effects those conditions have on patients’ lives and the lives of their families. Manual of Clinical Psychopharmacology for Nurses offers this holistic approach as well as the most current information on psychopharmacological prescribing from a nursing perspective in an accessible, easy-to-use format.

The only text designed especially for Psychiatric Mental Health Advanced Practice Registered Nurses, the Manual of Clinical Psychopharmacology for Nurses is grounded in the belief that given their nursing background and their personalized approach to the individual, these nurses are uniquely qualified to offer symptom-based treatment within the context of an individual’s medical and psychological care.

You’ll have access to Manual of Clinical Psychopharmacology for Nurses as a PDF download for the month of July at psychiatryonline.org/books.

The word “experimental” was dropped from the website in April 1997, and on June 26, 1997, a Capitol Hill press conference officially announced free MEDLINE access via PubMed.
