Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which one of the following filters is not available in Pubmed?

    • A. 

      Affiliation Country

    • B. 

      Sex

    • C. 

      Languages

    • D. 

      Type of Articles

    Correct Answer
    A. Affiliation Country
    Explanation
    Pubmed provides filters for searching articles based on various criteria such as sex, languages, and type of articles. However, it does not have a specific filter for searching articles based on affiliation country. This means that users cannot directly filter articles based on the country of the affiliations of the authors.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Searching in Pubmed, searching results for "obesity" AND "treatment" are larger than searching results for "obesity treatment".

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because when searching for "obesity" AND "treatment" in Pubmed, the results will include all articles that mention both terms individually, as well as articles that specifically discuss the treatment of obesity. On the other hand, searching for "obesity treatment" will only retrieve articles that specifically mention this exact phrase. Therefore, the results for the first search will be larger than the results for the second search.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Searching with POPLINE:In the search box, AND, OR, XOR or NOT ? If multiple words are entered without a Boolean operator, the default is (1).For example, typing family planning searches for family (2) planning (not family (3) planning)

    • A. 

      (1) AND - (2) AND - (3) OR

    • B. 

      (1) OR - (2) OR - (3) AND

    • C. 

      (1) NOT - (2) NOT - (3) OR

    • D. 

      (1) XOR - (2) XOR - (3) AND

    Correct Answer
    B. (1) OR - (2) OR - (3) AND
    Explanation
    The correct answer is (1) OR - (2) OR - (3) AND. When searching with POPLINE, if multiple words are entered without a Boolean operator, the default is to search for all the words using the OR operator. This means that the search will return results that include any of the entered words. In this case, "family planning" will search for "family" OR "planning", not "family" AND "planning".

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Searching with POPLINE:When accessing Popline, if you want to search a specific field, construct a multi-concept search strategy, and limit your retrieval by region, subregion, country, language, publication year and POPLINE Document Number; WHICH FIELD WILL YOU CHOOSE?

    • A. 

      Advanced Search

    • B. 

      Subjects

    • C. 

      Services

    • D. 

      All options are wrong.

    Correct Answer
    A. Advanced Search
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Advanced Search" because it allows the user to search for specific fields, construct a multi-concept search strategy, and limit the retrieval by various criteria such as region, subregion, country, language, publication year, and POPLINE Document Number. This option provides more advanced search capabilities compared to the other options mentioned.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Searching with POPLINE:1. We can use the asterisk (*) as a wildcard to truncate, or shorten, a word. However, we cannot use wildcards in some Advanced search fields, such as Keyword or Country/Region. --> TRUE or FALSE?2. When using an asterisk (*), what is the 'minimum' number of first characters of the word we have to type before the asterisk (*)? For example, to search for report, reports, or reporter, you can type: report*

    • A. 

      TRUE - at least the first 3 characters

    • B. 

      FALSE - at least the first 3 characters

    • C. 

      TRUE - at least the first 5 characters

    • D. 

      FALSE - at least the first 5 characters

    Correct Answer
    A. TRUE - at least the first 3 characters
    Explanation
    The correct answer is TRUE - at least the first 3 characters. This means that when using an asterisk (*) as a wildcard to truncate a word, we need to type at least the first 3 characters of the word before the asterisk. For example, if we want to search for words like report, reports, or reporter, we can type "report*".

    Correct Answer
    C. Box "Advanced Search" of Google Scholar
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Box 'Advanced Search' of Google Scholar" because Google Scholar provides an advanced search option that allows users to refine their search queries by specifying specific criteria such as author, publication, date, and keywords. This feature helps users to narrow down their search results and find more relevant and specific information.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    After searching with NYAM, we can limit our search results manually but not automatically. 

    • A. 

      TRUE

    • B. 

      FALSE

    Correct Answer
    B. FALSE
    Explanation
    The statement states that after searching with NYAM, we can limit our search results manually but not automatically. This means that while we can manually narrow down our search results using NYAM, we cannot do so automatically. Therefore, the correct answer is FALSE, as it contradicts the statement.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Searching with SIGLE:(1) Which is the implicit operator used between different words typed in the same field?(2) Which is the default operator between the different fields in an advanced search?

    • A. 

      (1) AND - (2) AND

    • B. 

      (1) OR - (2) OR

    • C. 

      (1) AND - (2) OR

    • D. 

      (1) OR - (2) AND

    Correct Answer
    A. (1) AND - (2) AND
    Explanation
    The correct answer is (1) AND - (2) AND. When searching with SIGLE, the implicit operator used between different words typed in the same field is "AND". This means that all the words in the search query must be present in the search results. Similarly, the default operator between different fields in an advanced search is also "AND". This means that the search results must contain all the specified words in each field.

      TRUE

    • B. 

      FALSE

    Correct Answer
    A. TRUE
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that when searching with ISI (Web of Science), the system does not differentiate between lowercase and uppercase letters. This means that the search is not case sensitive, and the keywords entered will be searched in the title, abstract, and keyword fields only.
