LTHT Publications

The LTHT Library & Knowledge Service collates details of publications listed as being authored by one or more members of Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Staff. This information is extracted from a weekly search of Medline, Embase and Emcare databases via the Ovid Search platform, and can be downloaded from this page. 

The spreadsheet is updated monthly (last updated 09/11/2023). 

Accessing the Full Text of Articles

Within the spreadsheet there are LibKey links for each article. If your library service has access to the article, there will be a link to the full text (you may be prompted to log in with OpenAthens before accessing).

If your library service does not have access to the article, accessing it through LibKey will allow you to request a copy through an automatic form. Our library staff will then endeavour to obtain a pdf of the article and send to you within 5 working days. If you have any issues accessing thefull text of a paper, please contact

Monthly Statistics

As part of our support for research in the Trust, we compile monthly statistics on the number of publications by LTHT staff, and those that have one or more author from a non-medical background. 

The monthly reports are based on the date that articles are added to the databases (Medline, Embase and Emcare), which may vary from the date of publication stated. 

Due to the way that the databases are set up it is possible that we may miss some publications or may include some errors. If you are a member of LTHT staff and have a publication you would like us to add, or if you would like us to amend something in the spreadsheet please contact


An OpenAthens account gives all NHS staff and learners access to a wide range of online resources.
