Please join us on Thursday, April 22, from 3:30-4:30 p.m., as we celebrate the official launch of the 2021 issue of CONCEPT: Interdisciplinary Journal of the Graduate Studies in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The ceremony will recognize this year’s top submission along with all of the student editors, faculty editors, and peer reviewers.

CONCEPT accepts submissions from Villanova graduate students in all fields of the arts and sciences and is an opportunity for them to share their creative work and research. Submissions are reviewed by graduate student editors, faculty editors, and peer reviewers, with final decisions made by the editors.

The 2021 edition of CONCEPT marks the 44th release of the journal. This event, co-sponsored by Falvey Memorial Library and the Graduate Division of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, is free and open to the public.

New Falvey Resource: The Cochrane Library

Falvey users now have full text access to the Cochrane Library’s systematic reviews of health care interventions. Reviews are prepared by members of the Cochrane Collaboration, “an international network of people helping healthcare providers, policy makers, patients, their advocates and carers, make well-informed decisions about human health care.” The database has the following specialty components:

  • Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (also includes Cochrane Methodology Reviews) – the heart of the Cochrane Library
  • Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effects
  • Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials
  • Cochrane Methodology Register
  • Health Technology Assessment Database
  • NHS Economic Evaluation Database

How do you access the Cochrane Library? Start at the library homepage (http://library.villanova.edu) and click Databases A-Z, then choose Cochrane. There is also a link on the Nursing Resources page.

Smart Searching Hint

Q. How can I tell if the library has electronic access to a journal?

A. Click Journal Finder at the library homepage. Type in the title of the journal.  If the library subscribes, you’ll get a link indicating the volumes/years available and connecting you to the publication. No hits?
