MS Links: Sources of Medical Articles
Click here for an explanation of my rating system.
 
PubMed (Medline) - new format 
A vast source of medical articles gathered by the NIH (National Institute of Health). Invaluable tool for research. Only shows abstacts unless you have some kind of professional arrangement. The articles are unreviewed. Often called Medline but not to be confused with the Medline at www.medline.com who supply medical equipment.
National Library of Medicine's MEDLINEplus 
Supersearch of Medline (PubMed) - allows you to search by category.
KIB - Internet Resources 
This is a terrific resource from Sweden's Karolinska Institutet's Library. All sorts of wonderful stuff here. In places speaking Swedish would help, but most of it is in English and you can't really complain about people writing in their native language.
Medscape 
This is the neurology page of medscape which has peer reviewed articles often with the full text. Not as many articles as PubMed but they cut out the chaff for you. You need to register to get this, but it's well worth it as they send you a mail every month telling you what's going on. Used by a lot of doctors.
Brain 
Important source of neurology articles. Articles older than 2 years are free.
BioMedNet 
Major source of medical articles (some full text), medical news, conference reports and other resources. Free registration brings extra benefits including email alerts.
Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Psychiatry
A good source of peer-reviewed articles from this BMJ (British Journal of Medicine) publication. Abstracts are free and relatively extensive, but you need a subscription to get hold of the full text. Go to the search section to access the articles.
eBMJ - electronic BMJ ( British Medical Journal )
More peer-reviewed articles from the parent publication to the above. The BMJ (British Journal of Medicine) is the voice of the British medical establishment. Go to the search section to access the articles. There are relatively fewer articles on MS and neurology in general in the BMJ than its daughter publication, the JNNP. The search engine does, however, allow you to search all its specialist publications with the same search terms.
The Lancet Neurology
Offshoot of highly respected British Medical Publication. You have to register and you get to see more if you belong to an institution that subscribes. Some of the articles have free full texts.
 
Free Medical Journals
Portal site that lists all the free full text journals on the Web. Registration means that you can get the latest neurology abstracts in a email alert.
 
Rockefeller Medical Library Guide Introduction
This site is large and is really designed to assist people browsing hardcopy texts in the Rockefeller Medical Library at the UK Institute of Neurology and The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery (where I am a patient). It includes links to online dictionaries and glossaries and much more.
 
International Journal of MS Care
Quarterly Journal. Very good source of articles about management of multiple sclerosis symptoms. Full text available for both current and past issues.
 
Multiple Sclerosis Quarterly Report
Quarterly Journal concentrating on MS research with full text.
