Literature review articles use database searches to identify, collate, and analyze available evidence on a topic. Systematic reviews, scoping reviews, and narrative reviews are different evidence-collection and synthesis approaches.
Like everything in life, open access has its good and bad sides. Here’s a brief rundown of some of the positive and negative aspects of publishing open access.

Parkinson’s disease is a debilitating, and still incurable, neurological disease. While there are no reliable blood or laboratory tests for diagnosing Parkinson’s, new research using advanced computer-based screening methods is providing new hope for earlier identification and treatment of the disease.
Parkinson’s disease affects tens of millions of people worldwide. A promising new study suggests that it may be possible to detect PD before severe symptoms occur. But how? Enter artificial intelligence! In this episode of Excited by the Science, our experts discuss a new way to detect Parkinson’s disease in its early stages using AI to analyze our breathing while we sleep.
