PubMed (Medline), Google Scholar, Web of Science, and PsycInfo  listings

As of 16 September 2017, Pubmed (Medline; U.S. National Library of Medicine) listed 155 of the over 190 publications. Pubmed does not list books, book chapters, many in press publications, many online-only publications, and some psychology or social science publications (PubMed also has an inconsistent policy regarding listing the content of some journals). To see the Pubmed listings (with abstracts where available) of Prof. Dr. Stuart Brody (excluding the listings that belong to other Pubmed listed authors named  S Brody), click here (opens a new window).

Google Scholar search:
The following is the Google Scholar citation listing: click here. This link provides more accurate results than simply using “Stuart Brody” (which yields both false positives and false negatives). Note that Google Scholar sometimes “loses” citations that it previously located, due in part to the citing source being offline during recent Google Scholar internet sweeps.

The Web of Science (ISI, Researcher ID) listing is available by clicking here

As of 8 October 2016, the fee-based PsycInfo/PsycLit (American Psychological Association) database listed 117 of the publications, including 20 publications not listed in Pubmed.

The ORCID listings (which include a small number of items that are only abstracts, conference papers, or errata) are not updated as often as this website is updated. Click here for the link
