Cochrane Library: saved searches (2) … and recent changes

5 05 2008

The previously reported problem with accessing saved searches on the Cochrane Library has been fixed (as off April 23th). Users should now be able to run all of their saved searches.

Hopefully the often encountered problems with the saved searche feature are now resolved once and for all. Indeed continued access to these searches is critical to Trial Search Coordinators and other users frequently running (or editing) saved searches.

Also, with the Issue 2, 2008 load, there were changes in the status indicators (“Update”, “Commented”, “Withdrawn”) used on the Cochrane Library. E.g. The ‘Update’ flag no longer exists and instead has been replaced with the more accurate flags ‘New search’ ‘Conclusions changed’ and ‘Major change’.
The specifics of these changes are posted on the Issue change notice at this PDF.

Het eerder gemelde probleem met het aanpassen en uitvoeren van “opgeslagen searches” in de Cochrane Library is verholpen (vanaf 23 april). Alle opgeslagen zoekacties kunnen nu weer uitgevoerd en aangepast worden.

Hopelijk zijn nu de “saved search”-problemen de wereld uit, want het afgelopen deden zich frequent problemen voor. Dit is bijzonder vervelend, vooral voor de Trial Search Coordinators en andere gebruikers die frequent searches updaten/uitvoeren.

Ook vermeldenswaardig: bij de 2e upload dit jaar (de Cochrane Library wordt 4x per jaar “ververst”) zijn de status indicators van de Cochrane Reviews (“Update”, “Commented”, “Withdrawn”) gewijzigd. Zie verder deze PDF.
