Clinicians have difficulty keeping up with advances in medical practice. With each year there is more to know and less time to learn it. Electronic database searching makes it easier to find articles on a given topic, sometimes by the thousands! However, current searching technologies are not well suited for selecting, as clinicians must, the smaller number of articles that are both scientifically credible and useful in clinical practice. Some readily available markers of good articles—respected journals, famous authors, well-known institutions—are crude ways of sorting at best. Thus, clinicians have a problem and, until now, no solutions.
