A quick reminder that I am still actively seeking participants to assist with my study (UGA IRB ID# 00001362) that tests a method for streamlining the process of constructing the sort of validation sets that are typically used to evaluate new MEDLINE search hedges.

You will be using a specially modified version of PubMed Search Tester, a clinical question as well as a rubric for evaluating which MEDLINE citations might contain the answer to that question. You can sort items for one, two or all three questions (each question should take around 7-10 minutes to complete). Your answers will help assess how well this approach to refining PubMed searches works in the real world.

Interested? Please review the formal Consent Agreement at Then start with a *very* short demographic questionnaire at before you continue on to the questions.

Thanks so much for your help!
