  11. 11. Citing – ACS style<br />
  12. 12. ? – citing<br />ACS is a numbered style – basically like footnotes, but with all the citations collected at the end of the paper.<br />For examples, see any paper in the Journal of the American Chemical Society.<br />There are two ways to quote information:<br />Use the author’s exact words – “use quotes”<br />Paraphrase in your own words – no quotes<br />Either way, cite where it came from.<br />
  13. 13. ? – prolific authors<br />To find prolific authors / number of papers:<br />Do a search<br />Look at “Refine” or “Analyse”<br />The top author listed there has published the most papers in this database<br />Note: Databases don’t include all papers in the world! (It’s just not possible – there are billions out there.)<br />So check more than one database, make sure to acknowledge that this is only a minimum.<br />
  14. 14. ? – the log<br />The log could include anything relevant from:<br />Where you searched<br />What search terms you used<br />What limits you used<br />How you refined the search<br />What results you got (print a copy or summarise)<br />Your judgement:<br />was this a successful search?<br />why?<br />
