T Nation

Do Some Research


#1

Here's what I typically use when I'm writing articles for T-Nation, and for writing my book, e-book, etc...

My first stop is always:

Google:
www.google.com

You can find almost everything you need on it, if you learn how to use it properly. My next stop is always: Medline/Pubmed:

Pubmed:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?DB=pubmed

Pubmed has basically all scientific and medical journal articles published since some time in the 50's. Almost everything I research online starts with a Pubmed search (remember, I have hundreds of dollars in medical/chemical books sitting on my book shelf, as well as every decent book on Anabolics ever written). But if I'm lacking a particular book, I try to find the PDF version of it here...they have around 600+ PDF medical textbooks on this site:

Free Books for Doctors:
http://freebooks4doctors.com/fb/index.htm

My next stop, if I don't need a book, is usually a search on the :

Journal of Applied Physiology:
http://jap.physiology.org/search.dtl

-or the-

Journal of Clinical Investigation:
http://www.jci.org/

-and-

The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism:
http://jcem.endojournals.org/

If you are looking for sports-related research specifically (training, nutrition, re & prehab, etc...) then you'll want to try this site:

SportsSci:
http://sportsci.org/

For hard to find articles, I use this really obscure site/engine:

FindArticles:
http://www.findarticles.com/

For chemical structures, there's two decent sites:

Chemfinder:
http://chemfinder.cambridgesoft.com/

-and-

Chemindustry:
http://www.chemindustry.com/apps/chemicals

(or sometimes)

INCHEM:
http://www.inchem.org/

For alot of other stuff, when the other search engines and databases fail, I use direct journals:

AIDS Journals:
http://www.freemedicaljournals.com/htm/spec1.htm#hiv
Addiction Journals: http://www.freemedicaljournals.com/htm/spec1.htm#addic
Basic Science Journals: http://www.freemedicaljournals.com/htm/spec2.htm#basic
Biochemistry Journals:
http://www.freemedicaljournals.com/htm/spec2.htm#bioch
Biology Journals:
http://www.freemedicaljournals.com/htm/spec2.htm#biolo
Chemistry Journals:
http://www.freemedicaljournals.com/htm/spec3.htm#chemi
Medical Library:
http://www.freemedicaljournals.com/htm/spec9.htm#libra
Pharmacology Journals:
http://www.freemedicaljournals.com/htm/spec13.htm#pharc
Pharmacy Journals:
http://www.freemedicaljournals.com/htm/spec13.htm#pharm
Physiology Journals:
http://www.freemedicaljournals.com/htm/spec14.htm#physi
Sports Medicine Journals:
http://www.freemedicaljournals.com/htm/spec17.htm#sport
Reproductive Health Journals:
http://www.freemedicaljournals.com/htm/spec16.htm#repro
Sports Medicine Journals:
http://www.freemedicaljournals.com/htm/spec17.htm#sport
Medline Plus:
http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/
Endocrinology:
http://www.endocrinology.org/default.htm
The FDA:
http://www.fda.gov/
The NIH:
http://www.nih.gov/
New Scientist:
http://www.smi.stanford.edu/pubs/index.html

For information on recreational drugs and such, I usually go to:

Erowid:
www.erowid.com

-followed by either-

The Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies:
http://www.maps.org/
Dansesafe:
www.dansesafe.org

As for Online or print Authors and Magazines, I generally read stuff by Duchaine, Karl Hoffman, Bill Roberts, and alot of whats written on different AAS sites, though typically not the forums. (*sorry)

Anyway, basically all of the information I've ever posted comes from one of the above sites or search engines. So now that you have all of them, you can check up on my references, or do some researching and writing of your own.

Although i do not agree with the tapering method of comeing off,Intelligence is something that you don't lack! You are a guru on AAS.I wished I had half your knowledge on aas.I could see where being a friend would be to ones benefit.Not blowing smoke by no means but I will be man enough to give credit where it is due.Have a good holiday Roberts.

While I'm too young to even consider using steroids, a good substitute/supplement for google.com is http://scholar.google.com. It only consists of academic journals/articles.
You're a great resource AR, thanks.

I thought it was P#22 that like the tapering method.


#5
