Transcript

  • 1. Chemical Literature Searching and Library Research<br />CHEM 496September 9, 2009<br />Elizabeth Brown<br />ebrown@binghamton.edu<br />(607)777-4882<br />LS-2304C<br />
  • 2. How are Journals and Magazines Different?<br />Scholarly Journals, Peer-reviewed Journals, Research Journals<br />Peer-reviewed by scientists and researchers.<br />Articles have been selected and published from submissions.<br />Popular Journals, Magazines, Newspapers<br />NOT peer –reviewed.<br />Submissions are accepted and corrected grammatically.<br />Scientific content of the article is not evaluated. <br />
  • 3. Chemical and Scientific Literature<br />Primary Literature: original research results and data. <br />Journal articles, dissertations, patents, research reports, journal article supplementary material<br />Current Research @ BU<br />
  • 4. Secondary Literature<br />Analyzed, summarized, synthesized data<br />Indexes and abstracts of the scientific literature – Scifinder Scholar, INSPEC, Web of Science<br />
  • 5. Tertiary Literature<br />Collections of previously published material, data, and ideas<br />Textbooks, Review articles, Handbooks, Encyclopedias<br />
  • 6. How Are Scientific Papers Published?<br />Scholarly articles go through the peer review process:<br />Articles submitted to a journal<br />Several Referees read submissions, judge quality of the manuscript<br />Submission outcomes: <br />Rejection – not publishable<br />Accepted with changes<br />Accepted without changes <br />Acceptance of a paper can be very selective or non-selective<br />
  • 7. Types of Research Articles - Letters<br />Letter (or Communication) (1-2 pages)<br />Short article on a new research discovery or breakthrough<br />Usually a single experiment or idea is discussed<br />Part of the letter discusses the importance of the results shown<br />
  • 8. Types of Research Articles – Journal Articles<br />Journal Article (or Article) (5-20 pages)<br />Medium-length summary of a series of research experiments<br />Most common-type of peer-review publication<br />Usually written within one research group, but frequently collaborators in different labs and departments work together<br />
  • 9. Types of Journal Articles – Review Articles<br />Review Article<br />Long review of developments in a general research field, usually 100 pages or more.<br />Usually written by one author, someone well known and respected in that field. <br />Will have many references to previous journal literature articles (over 100 references total.)<br />
  • 10. How do I find Journal Articles?<br />Scifinder Scholar (Chemical Abstracts Online)<br />Journal articles, conference proceedings papers, and patents<br />Over 28 million documents from over 10,000 chemistry sources<br />1907 - present <br />Chemistry, Chemical Technology, Biochemistry, Materials Science<br />Published by Chemical Abstracts Services (CAS), a division of the American Chemical Society (ACS)<br />
  • 11. Using Scifinder Scholar<br />Databases:<br />Chemical Abstracts – chemistry literature<br />Medline – medical literature <br />CAS Registry: 33 million organic and inorganic substances, 50 million genetic sequences<br />Casreact: 14 million single and multi-step reactions<br />Chemcats: catalogs of commercially available chemicals<br />Chemlist: chemical regulations<br />
  • 12. Scifinder Searching<br />Explore References<br />More than 29 million references from more than 10,000 major scientifi c journals as well as books and scientifi c proceedings from the 1800’s to the present<br />References to patent and patent families of chemical, biochemical, and engineering interest from 57 patent authorities around the world.<br />Daily updates<br />More than 200 million citations<br />Explore Substances<br />Access to the CAS RegistrySM, the largest and most authoritative source of disclosed chemical substance information<br />More than 1.6 billion chemical, biological, thermal, and spectral property values<br />Explore Reactions<br />More than 15 million reactions that provide information on synthetic organic research, including organometallics, total syntheses of natural products, and biotransformation reactions<br />Reaction conditions, yields, and catalysts<br />
  • 13. Citation Manager Software<br />Add citations<br />Organize references for papers<br />Create bibliographies<br />Insert formatted footnotes, endnotes into documents.<br />Multiple citation formats available<br />
  • 14. Tasks in <br />Import citations (Google Scholar)<br />File and organize references<br />Create a Bibliography<br />
  • 15. - get started <br />Go to the Libraries’ homepage:<br />http://library.binghamton.edu/<br />Select RefWorks<br />Create an account<br />Begin importing references<br />
  • 16. Adding Records in<br />Search Scifinder and Web of Science<br />Look for citations on Google Scholar <br />Import through link on results screen using Google Scholar<br />
