We need tutorials in all languages for how to search the secondary peer-reviewed scientific, medical, and associated literature.
For now, we need to make sure everyone in a content dispute knows how to use the limit feature on PubMed to select only the reviews and meta-analyses. Please see the limit checkboxes on: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/advanced
Content quality will suffer if those involved in content disputes don't use peer-reviewed secondary sources as the most reliable, when they are available.
- What are the systems other than PubMed for searching secondary peer-reviewed reviews in other fields beside medicine, chemical, and biological sciences?
- Do we need to also provide tutorials for the Science Citation Index even though it may not be available for free to everyone?
- What systems other than PubMed can be used for searching secondary peer-reviewed reviews in other languages?
If we don't do this, content quality and coverage could both suffer.
