Climate Change and Human Health Literature Portal: What it is and How to Use it In-Person

Registration is required.

The National Institute of Environmental Health Science (NIEHS) introduced the Climate Change and Human Health (CCHH) Literature Portal so that academic and public health stakeholders could find relevant studies on climate change and health with ease. The portal brings together scholarly and grey literature identified through a comprehensive search in PubMed, Web of Science, Google Scholar, and websites of scientific and health organizations. The portal aims to direct users to freely available versions of search results so that researchers and the general public can read the full text of articles irrespective of institutional affiliations. 

Workshop attendees will learn how to:

  • Browse articles associated with curated research topic areas in the 'Example Explorations' section of the CCHH Literature Portal homepage;
  • Search for literature in the Portal in a variety of ways, such as
    • Conducting a keyword search; 
    • Searching for literature using filters specific to the Portal (i.e. papers are read and tagged as being about a particular health impact, exposure, etc.);
    • Search for all resources available in the portal and then apply filters; 
  • Download results to a citation manager.
