B. Deciphering citations

Here's how to "decipher" our citation:

Long-term effects of orthodontic magnets...

The information in italics tells us how to retrieve the article itself: it tells us to go to the European Journal of Orthodontics, volume 20, issue 3 (dated June, 1998), and look at pages 211-218.

Please note that the MEDLINE "Unique Identifier" at the end of the citation (9699399) will NOT help you find the journal within your library (though it will come in handy if you ever want to find this MEDLINE record again).
