Chem 496 2 2 09 Session 1 Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Introduction to the Chemical Literature and Library Research Session 1: CHEM 496 February 2, 2009 Elizabeth Brown [email_address] (607)777-4882 LN-2303
  • 2. 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.
  • 3. Chemical and Scientific Literature
    • Primary Literature : original research results and data.
      • Journal articles, dissertations, patents, research reports, journal article supplementary material
      • Current Research @ BU
  • 4. Secondary Literature
    • Analyzed, summarized, synthesized data
      • Indexes and abstracts of the scientific literature – Scifinder Scholar, INSPEC, Web of Science
  • 5. Tertiary Literature
    • Collections of previously published material, data, and ideas
      • Textbooks, Review articles, Handbooks, Encyclopedias
  • 6. 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
  • 7. Prestigious Journals in Chemistry – Some Examples
  • 8. 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
  • 9. 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
  • 10. 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.)
  • 11. 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
  • 12. 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)
  • 13. 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
  • 14. Scifinder Searching
    • Search by Topic, Author Name, Chemical Structure
    • Analyzing Results
    • Printing and Saving Results
  • 15. I. Explore by Research Topic
