The purpose of this annotated bibliography is to provide an information resource addressing syndromic surveillance associated with bioterrorism. The primary audiences are public health practitioners who want to learn more about syndromic surveillance and/or systems or who have a system that they want to improve upon.
Key articles on syndromic surveillance associated with bioterrorism have been collected. Resources included in this bibliography are peer-reviewed articles, academic papers, technical reports, and Web-based information on syndromic surveillance systems. The resources are categorized by the following groupings: overview/general, analytic methods, informatics, evaluation of syndromic surveillance systems, and other resources. In addition, non-bioterrorism-related resources include information on syndromic surveillance not addressing bioterrorism but which may still be of use to our audiences.
