Beyond English: Accessing the global epidemiological literature
Edited by Mr. Isaac Fung Emerging Themes in Epidemiology 2008, 5:21
The thematic series 'Beyond English: Accessing the global epidemiological literature' in Emerging Themes in Epidemiology highlights the wealth of epidemiological and public health literature in the major languages of the world, and the bibliographic databases through which they can be searched and accessed. This editorial suggests that all systematic reviews in epidemiology and public health should include literature published in the major languages of the world and that the use of regional and non-English bibliographic databases should become routine. Look at the site and download articles showing different realities in distant countries from China to Brasil, to Latin American and the Carribean, to Russia, Easterern ad West Europe.
