• In 1958, U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower directed the National Science Foundation to ensure the provision of indexing, abstracting, translation, and other information retrieval services as a way of ensuring a constant flow of consistently high-quality information to those working in scientific research facilities. (wikipedia.org)
  • BACKGROUND: Clear, transparent, and sufficiently detailed abstracts of conferences and journal articles related to randomized controlled trials (RCTs) are important, because readers often base their assessment of a trial solely on information in the abstract. (ox.ac.uk)
  • AUTHORS' CONCLUSIONS: Handsearching still has a valuable role to play in identifying reports of randomized trials for inclusion in systematic reviews of health care interventions, particularly in identifying trials reported as abstracts, letters and those published in languages other than English, together with all reports published in journals not indexed in electronic databases. (ox.ac.uk)
  • Conclusions: High comorbidity assessed by Charlson Comorbidity Index is associated with poor functional outcome and mortality in acute stroke patients treated with mechanical thrombectomy. (ovid.com)
  • CONCLUSIONS: CONSORT for Abstracts aims to improve reporting of abstracts of RCTs published in journal articles and conference proceedings. (ox.ac.uk)
  • Conclusions: Indexed left atrial epicardial adipose tissue area is a novel marker for estimating burden of left atrial fat that can be easily calculated from CT images. (ovid.com)
  • Here, we extend the CONSORT (Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials) Statement to develop a minimum list of essential items, which authors should consider when reporting the results of a RCT in any journal or conference abstract. (ox.ac.uk)
  • CONSORT for Abstracts recommends that abstracts relating to RCTs have a structured format. (ox.ac.uk)
  • Topics in Early Childhood Special Education focuses on information that aims to improve the lives of young children with special needs and their families. (wikipedia.org)
  • Topics in Early Childhood Special Education primarily aims to help professionals improve service delivery systems for preschool children with special needs. (wikipedia.org)
  • Each review within the topical collection critically surveys one aspect of that topic and places it within the context of the collection as a whole. (springer.com)
  • However, where time and resources are limited, searching an electronic database using a complex search (or the Cochrane HSSS) will identify the majority of trials published as full reports in English language journals, provided, of course, that the relevant journals have been indexed in the database.

  • In 1958, convinced of the value of mutual interaction and the interchange of ideas and expertise, a new organization-the National Federation of Science Abstracting and Indexing Services (NFSAIS)-was formed. (wikipedia.org)
  • The Federation expanded its scope further into the information community in 1982 and changed its name to National Federation of Abstracting and Information Services. (wikipedia.org)
  • Journal of the Alzheimer's Association publishes the results of studies in diverse topics from biochemistry and genetics to neuropsychology, sociology, health services research related to Alzheimer disease. (dmoztools.net)
  • Selected pages from current issue [PDF], index of special reports, advertising information, and subscription form. (dmoztools.net)
  • We aim to study the capacity of Charlson comorbidity index (CCI) in predicting mortality and functional outcome in acute ischemic stroke patients who underwent mechanical thrombectomy. (ovid.com)
  • Methods: We performed a retrospective analysis of 255 consecutive patients with AF referred to the University of Massachusetts Medical Center (UMMC) AF Treatment program for catheter ablation (CA). LAEAT was measured using pre-defined axial slices of pre-ablation CT scans and then indexed to body surface area (BSA). (ovid.com)
