Hoof, meet Research. That's how HoofSearch began. Do your interests lie where the horse's hoof and research intersect? Then, this new service is for you. Academic and private practice professionals alike will benefit from using this concise, connected monthly guide to new peer-reviewed equine foot research. You're invited to become a charter subscriber!
Come out from behind your stack of unopened journals.
Put away the sticky notes.
Forget the guilt of unread articles, the deluge of content-alert reminder emails, and the confusion of search parameters on database websites.
Let HoofSearch, the new one-stop link list service from Hoofcare Publishing, keep you updated! Watch your comprehension of the big picture of professional knowledge--about foot-related imaging, laminitis, biomechanics and much more--surge forward.
HoofSearch is a new service that collects all the new research for you and sends you ONE email a month. You simply click the link in the email; it opens a private indexed document in your browser. The document will become your compass; it contains citations and links to the peer-reviewed papers and patents published on the horse's foot during the preceding month.
Read previews of articles you'll see in the journals you receive, monitor articles in the journals you don't receive--and learn about journals and web resources you probably haven't even discovered yet. The links deliver you to journal articles, conference proceedings and academic theses collected from six continents. Foreign-language paper details are even translated to English for you.
Important technical note: HoofSearch works equally well on phones, tablets, laptops and desktop computers. Mobile viewing is via your device's browser (Chrome, FireFox, Safari, etc.) by default, or you can download free Google Docs or Google Drive apps for enhanced viewing on the go. The apps will store all your HoofSearch editions so you can search for and retrieve entries from your past months' reports on any and all devices. You can check a single reference on HoofSearch with the mobile app, access full HoofSearch editions anywhere you have a mobile signal, or ponder the big picture of research on the larger screen of any laptop or computer.
