Reference Modules: Current

When articles in a Reference Module are reviewed for currency by the editorial board, they are either confirmed to be current, updated, or removed and replaced. When this process is complete, an article is given a time stamp which reads “current as of” followed by the date of last review or update. This time stamp assures researchers that they are using the most current information to inform their research.

Librarians will also know that the content is current because they will receive email updates indicating how much content in their Reference Modules has been reviewed and updated.
