A recent example of a use for related articles was when I was looking for articles on omega-3 fatty acids. I just searched under omega-3 and looked at the returned list. The fourth result was ”Omega-3 fatty acids for bipolar disorder’ which I thought might be interesting, so I hit related articles which returned the following (just showing the top 7):

  • Omega-3 fatty acid treatment and T(2) whole brain relaxation times in bipolar disorder. American Journal of Psychiatry 2004
  • Omega-3 fatty acids for bipolar disorder Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews 2008
  • Some of our patients have been put on Omacor by a psychiatrist as a mood stabiliser. As this is not listed as an indication in the BNF, I would be grateful for any information about this use of Omacor. TRIP Answers 2005
  • Omega-3 fatty acids and mood disorders. American Journal of Psychiatry 2006
  • Omega-3 fatty acids: evidence basis for treatment and future research in psychiatry. Journal of Clinical Psychiatry 2006
  • A meta-analytic review of double-blind, placebo-controlled trials of antidepressant efficacy of omega-3 fatty acids. Journal of Clinical Psychiatry 2007
  • Cross-national comparisons of seafood consumption and rates of bipolar disorders. American Journal of Psychiatry 2003

So, from having one article on the topic, with the click of a button I have lots – easy!
