  • How to access full text through Hopkins and how to seamlessly request items that are not readily available.
  • How to set up a free MyNCBI account to create search alerts, save results, and access customizable features and tools.
  • How to export results to citation management tools (e.g., RefWorks, EndNote, Zotero) and screening tools such as Covidence.
