How QUOSA works

It provides all the tools needed for efficiently organizing, searching, sharing and annotating information. You can use QUOSA to search other sources, including Embase® and PubMed®, and retrieve references from them. You can also set email alerts to let you know about new documents that are relevant to your searches in those databases. QUOSA ensures that all stakeholders can answer the three essential questions in literature management:
- Where is the literature?
- How is it organized?
- Do we have the right to store and share full-text articles?*
