Referencing (TAFE)


MIMS Online functions like a database but it is basically the electronic version of the original print publication called Monthly Index of Medical Specialties.

Because it is a reference guide (like an encyclopedia) a topic article in MIMS Online can be referenced as an encyclopedia article without author or editor names.
