    • Introduction to the Chemical Literature and Library Research Session 1: CHEM 496 February 2, 2009 Elizabeth Brown [email_address] (607)777-4882 LN-2303
    • How are Journals and Magazines Different?
      • Scholarly Journals, Peer-reviewed Journals, Research Journals
      • Peer-reviewed by scientists and researchers.
      • Articles have been selected and published from submissions.
      • Popular Journals, Magazines, Newspapers
      • NOT peer –reviewed.
      • Submissions are accepted and corrected grammatically.
      • Scientific content of the article is not evaluated.
    • Chemical and Scientific Literature
      • Primary Literature : original research results and data.
        • Journal articles, dissertations, patents, research reports, journal article supplementary material
        • Current Research @ BU
    • Secondary Literature
      • Analyzed, summarized, synthesized data
        • Indexes and abstracts of the scientific literature – Scifinder Scholar, INSPEC, Web of Science
    • Tertiary Literature
      • Collections of previously published material, data, and ideas
        • Textbooks, Review articles, Handbooks, Encyclopedias
    • How Are Scientific Papers Published?
      • Scholarly articles go through the peer review process :
      • Articles submitted to a journal
      • Several Referees read submissions, judge quality of the manuscript
      • Submission outcomes:
        • Rejection – not publishable
        • Accepted with changes
        • Accepted without changes
      • Acceptance of a paper can be very selective or non-selective
    • Prestigious Journals in Chemistry – Some Examples
    • Types of Research Articles - Letters
      • Letter (or Communication) (1-2 pages)
      • Short article on a new research discovery or breakthrough
      • Usually a single experiment or idea is discussed
      • Part of the letter discusses the importance of the results shown
    • Types of Research Articles – Journal Articles
      • Journal Article (or Article) (5-20 pages)
      • Medium-length summary of a series of research experiments
      • Most common-type of peer-review publication
      • Usually written within one research group, but frequently collaborators in different labs and departments work together
    • Types of Journal Articles – Review Articles
      • Review Article
      • Long review of developments in a general research field, usually 100 pages or more.
      • Usually written by one author, someone well known and respected in that field.
      • Will have many references to previous journal literature articles (over 100 references total.)
    • Locating Print Journals in the Libraries
      • Search infoLINK Library catalog for journal titles
      • Most pre-1990 print journals are in the Library Annex
      • Request Annex items online
      • ILLiad Interlibrary Loan for items not in infoLINK
    • How do I find Journal Articles?
      • Scifinder Scholar (Chemical Abstracts Online)
      • Indexes chemical research
      • Journal articles, conference proceedings papers, and patents
      • Over 28 million documents from over 10,000 chemistry sources
      • 1907 - present
      • Chemistry, Chemical Technology, Biochemistry, Materials Science
      • Published by Chemical Abstracts Services (CAS), a division of the American Chemical Society (ACS)
    • Using Scifinder Scholar
      • Databases:
      • Chemical Abstracts – chemistry literature
      • Medline – medical literature
      • CAS Registry : 33 million organic and inorganic substances, 50 million genetic sequences
      • Casreact: 14 million single and multi-step reactions
      • Chemcats: catalogs of commercially available chemicals
      • Chemlist: chemical regulations
    • Scifinder Searching
      • Search by Topic, Author Name, Chemical Structure
      • Analyzing Results
      • Printing and Saving Results
    • I. Explore by Research Topic
