Transcript

  • 1. Chemical Information
    BCHM281 / CHEM281 - 2010
  • 2. Our mission is...
    Finding reliable (and recent) information sources
    Finding a paper by specific authors
    Finding review articles on particular subjects like biochemicals
    Finding information for compounds – formulas, structures, toxicity
    Finding out about enzymes – EC numbers
    Using ChemSketch / drawing chemical structures
    Using Google Scholar
    Find out how often a paper has been cited
    Formatting a bibliography in the ACS citation style
  • 3. We already know... (p. 1)
    Journals have articles relating to the journal topic
    A review article sums up what other articles have been written on a subject
    Citing means listing what you’ve read as research/background
    References (inline and at end) are used when the author’s quoting something, or refering to facts
    We can draw structures by hand
  • 4. We already know... (p. 2)
    Some of us also know:
    How to reference in the APA style
    How to find papers through Google Scholar / Scopus
    How to get a list of lecturers’ papers from the department website
    How to locate chemical data – from Vogel’s Textbook of Practical Organic Chemistry
  • 5. We need to know…
    How to find reliable sources including papers and references
    About review articles
    Finding chemical data, EC numbers etc
    Drawing molecules in ChemSketch/ Chemspider
    Find out the number of citations – how often something’s been cited
    How to reference properly - ACS citation style
  • 6. Today we’ll cover…
    How scientists share information
    Finding chemical and/or enzyme data
    Structure drawing
    Finding papers
    Citing sources in ACS style
  • 7. How would you… share your results?
    Give talks
    Write them down and send to a friend
    Send letters or newsletters
    Publish in newspapers
    Publish independently - get in touch with a printing press to publish papers or books
    Gather articles about the same subject and send out a journal
  • 8. Journals
    Magazines for scientists
    Narrow subject focus
    New issues regularly(quarterly/monthly/...)
    Each issue has papers by a variety of authors about their research.
  • 9. How would you… prevent hoaxes?
    Repeat the experiment and see if you get the same results
    Check the author’s credentials - make sure it’s not sent by a politician!
    Employ people who know the field to edit journals
    Check ideas against previously published information
    Peer review – Send papers out to other people who know the subject to see what they think about them and whether they’re feasible or credible
  • 10. Peer review
    The paper is sent to the author’s peers - scientists working in the same field.
    They review the article to check for accuracy, clarity, reproducibility, etc.
    The author makes corrections and improvements.
    The article is published.
  • 11. How would you… balance access & profit?
    Put journals in a search engine – easy to find
    Charge libraries and universities for passwords
    Big companies manage databases = articles from lots of journals all in one place
    Subscription fees or pay-per-article
    A free preview but pay for the full article
    Articles could be free to view, funded by:
    advertising
    research grants
    donations
    government (find a military application for it!)
    universities (maybe hosted on university servers)
  • 12. Databases
    By publisher vs by subject
    Full-text vs citation only
    Papers vs data
    Precision vs usability
    Pay-for vs free
    No-one has it all!
  • 13. So where to start?
    http://canterbury.libguides.com/chem
  • 14. handling and storage
    hazard ratings
    accidental release measures
    toxicological data
    properties
  • 15. reactions
    EC numbers
    organisms
    inhibitors
    substrates
    properties
    references
  • 16. properties
    formula
    structure drawing
    weight
    & much, much more data...
    links to some articles/patents
  • 17. journal articles
    review articles
    links to full-text (if we have it)
    who’s cited who
  • 18. Author(s)
    Title of the paper
    Where it was published – Journal name
    Year published
    Volume
    Issue
    Page numbers
    How would you… cite a paper?
  • 19. Anatomy of a citation
    Colak, A. T.; Colak, F.; Yesilel, O. Z.; Buyukgungor, O. Synthesis, spectroscopic, thermal, voltammetric studies and biological activity of crystalline complexes of pyridine-2,6-dicarboxylic acid and 8-hydroxyquinoline. J. Mol. Struct.2009, 936 (1-3), 67-74.
  • 20. Summary
    Subject guide website & “How to find” tab for:
    Chemical data
    Journal articles
    Safety data sheets
    For reliable sources search in databases which collect peer-reviewed journals – eg Web of Science, Scopus, Google Scholar
    What each database specialises in:
    Brenda for enzymes and EC numbers
    ChemWatch for hazards and material safety datasheets (MSDS)
    ChemSpider for structure, properties, drawing molecules
    Web of Science, Google Scholar for journal papers
    Refining document type to “Review” to narrow down to overviews
    ACS style – see http://library.canterbury.ac.nz/services/ref/acs/
