Introduction to the scientific literature about fibrolamellar



Reading the latest articles in peer-reviewed journals is the best way to stay up-to-date about fibrolamellar. To help both doctors and patients do this, we have collected them in one place, along with plain English summaries. Through our membership in patientINFORM, we are able to bring you links to articles hidden behind paywalls.There are instructions below on how you can access the latest  scientific and medical publications.  The video below gives more insight into how to do your own

How to keep up with the latest articles

Open any web browser, and type in the address:  http://www.pubmed.com (or click on the link to  your left). This will take you to a site run by the National Institutes of  Health (NIH) of the United States (you will see that your new web address is: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/ ).  This site was developed by the NIH with the specific purpose of making all of their research available to the public. Type "fibrolamellar" into the search box. This will yield a complete list of articles that have the word fibrolamellar.  If you click on the article, you will be brought to a more in-depth description of the article.  Most of the articles will have a one-paragraph description.  Most will also have a box in the upper right hand corner (under the blue banner), which, if you click on it, will get you access to the article.  Unfortunately, many publishers will want to charge you for the article.  We will be trying to buy licences for as many of these as we can.

Many of the authors, if emailed, will send you a free PDF of the articles. If you are not familiar with PDF files, you can get a free program for reading them at: http://get.adobe.com/reader/  Fortunately, in the past three years the NIH has started a policy that requires that any work that is done with NIH funds MUST be made available for free to the public within six months of publication.   Thus, many of the articles on the PUBMED site will have a small sign saying: FREE PMC Article.
