Presentations at scientific conferences often are
the first public release of research findings or new developments
in clinical practice. These important communications typically predate
publication in peer-reviewed medical journals by two to three years.
As a result, the content of meeting papers or posters is frequently
the focus of online inquiries. Unfortunately, finding answers can
be difficult. Which databases offer the most timely and substantive
information regarding individual presentations at scientific meetings?
This session compares and contrasts health science conference coverage
and search features provided in both fee-based, online databases
and relevant, free Web resources.
