View Full Version : Literature Update

This week's Literature Update for keywords BIOMECH* or LOCOMOT*
and fashion tip.

Last week, there was some discussion of database choice for Lit
searches. I prefer and use BIOSIS
for these Lit Updates. It is a bit slower than PubMed in posting
publications but it is much
more complete in coverage of non-human research. It is limited to
fairly highly regarded
peer reviewed journals.
