How To – For Beginners

This is a, how to, for beginners.

Detta kapitel är på engelska, då man ändå måste förstå engelska när man läser studierna.

Frist off, all studies linked by ”Ät Rätt:s Ät Dig Frisk”, is written in English so if you cannot read and understand this text, you will not understand the studies, so there is no point of writing this explanation in any other language. Most of the studies, linked from ”Ät Rätt:s Ät Dig Frisk” is linked to PubMed. PubMed comprises over 24 million citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books.

This is a, ”How to read studies” on PubMed. It is divided into three steps,
The studies is usually, but not always, written in two formats, I will call them ”Conclusion” and ”In Conclusion”. Let’s start with Conclusion.

Conclusion:

The ”Abstract” is almost always free to read and if the ”Abstract” is built up with OBJECTIVES, METHODS, RESULTS AND CONCLUSION.

  1. Start by only read the Conclusions (green circle).
  2. When you feel comfortable with step 1, read the whole abstract.
  3. When Step 1 and 2 is no problem anymore, read the whole thing (if available). Some studies are free. If ”Free PMC Article” exists under the Conclusion (blue Circle), you can find the link to the free article up in the right corner (Blue Circle).

In Conclusion:

The ”Abstract” is almost always free to read and if the ”Abstract” is built up with continuous text.

  1. Find the ”In Conclusion” and read from there (green circle).
  2. When you feel comfortable with step 1, read the whole abstract.
  3. When Step 1 and 2 is no problem anymore, read the whole thing (if available). Some studies are free. If ”Free PMC Article” exists under the Conclusion (blue Circle), you can find the link to the free article up in the right corner (Blue Circle).
