Transcript

  • 1. Finding & Citing Information<br />How to search for and find the research literature you need!<br />CELB20020 Perspectives in Cell Biology<br />Presented by Josh Clark, Science Librarian<br />Wednesday 26th January 2011<br />UCD James Joyce Library<br />Leabharlann UCD<br />
  • 2. What I will cover:<br /><ul><li>Plagiarism – what it is and what you need to know
  • 3. The different sources of information
  • 4. What are the best sources for your needs?
  • 5. How to start searching
  • 6. Using the Library’s catalogue & article searching functions</li></li></ul><li>Since my very unsuccessful journeyto the library, I am now unsure about how effective research is going to be made in this project as there seems to be no written literature published yet. I know that an unbiased project can not be produced with information solely from the internetso I'm sort of confused as to what to do next.<br />From a real student!<br />
  • 7.
  • 8. After the information gathering...<br />Once you have a sufficient (and relevant!) amount of information, it’s time to analyse, draw your conclusions and write up your report/ presentation.<br />It’s very important to compile your bibliography – references to the material which has informed your own research<br />
  • 9.
  • 10. Avoid plagiarism!<br /><ul><li>What is plagiarism?
  • 11. What is common knowledge?
  • 12. How does plagiarism happen?
  • 13. How to avoid plagiarism
  • 14. Paraphrasing vs quotations
  • 15. Referencing within a text
  • 16. Citing secondary sources
  • 17. Where to find further information</li></li></ul><li>What is it?<br />“The action or practice of taking someone else's work, idea, etc., and passing it off as one's own”<br />“literary theft”<br />-Oxford English Dictionary definition<br />
  • 18. Forms of plagiarism<br /><ul><li>Using another person’s words or ideas without crediting the original source
  • 19. Copying and pasting directly from a source into your document
  • 20. Passing off someone else’s work as your own
  • 21. Failing to put a quotation in quotation marks</li></li></ul><li>Forms of plagiarism<br /><ul><li>Summarising or paraphrasing material without crediting the original source
  • 22. Changing certain words or phrases but copying the ideas and sentence structure of the original source without crediting it
  • 23. Citing sources you did not use or read</li></li></ul><li>UCD’s policy<br />Plagiarism is a serious academic offence. While plagiarism may be easy to commit unintentionally, it is defined by the act not the intention. <br />See the University’s policy on plagiarism!<br />http://www.ucd.ie/registry/academicsecretariat/plag_pol_proc.pdf<br />
  • 24. Why so serious?<br /><ul><li>Plagiarism undermines the University’s reputation and the quality of degrees and research
  • 25. Knowledge creation is a key element of researching
  • 26. Ability to communicate in writing, researching, and learning to organise data is an essential part of life long learning
  • 27. Undermines integrity</li></li></ul><li>examples of plagiarism<br />In journalism: Jayson Blair, NYT reporter<br />In politics: Obama speech<br />In music: <br />Madonna<br />George Harrison Coldplay<br />U2<br />
  • 28. examples of plagiarism<br />
  • 29. examples of plagiarism<br />
  • 30. examples of plagiarism<br />
  • 31. How does it happen?<br />Unintentional:<br /><ul><li>Poor study skills
  • 32. Poor time management
  • 33. Can’t find the information
  • 34. Poor citation skills
  • 35. Ignorance about plagiarism</li></ul>Intentional:<br /><ul><li>Pressure for good grades
  • 36. Poor time management!
  • 37. Dishonesty</li></li></ul><li>3 common misperceptions<br /><ul><li> It's not plagiarism if you paraphrase
  • 38. Put anything in quotation marks - it's not plagiarism if you acknowledge that it's a quotation
  • 39. The Web viewed as the public domain</li></li></ul><li>Common knowledge<br />Definition: facts, dates, events and information that are readily available<br />e.g., mitosis is one stage of the cell cycle<br />Common knowledge does not have to be cited!<br />You MUST cite a source when:<br /><ul><li>the idea/thought comes from another source
  • 40. an author interprets the thoughts/ideas from another source (secondary source)</li></li></ul><li>Common knowledge<br /><ul><li>Tony Blair is the former UK Prime Minister
  • 41. A molecule of water contains one oxygen and two hydrogen atoms
  • 42. Frogs are amphibians
  • 43. The speed of light is 299,792,458 metres per second</li></ul>HOWEVER....if you’re not sure, GO AHEAD AND CITE!!<br />
  • 44. Common knowledge quiz<br />Which one is considered common knowledge?<br />A. Charles Darwin had several theories, including evolution and natural selection<br />B. Darwin's major work entitled Origin of Species was published in six different editions<br />
  • 45. Writing your report<br />Watch out for the following:<br /><ul><li> Incorrect paraphrasing
  • 46. use of quotations
  • 47. use proper citation styles</li></li></ul><li>paraphrasing<br />When in doubt, cite!<br />incorrect paraphrasing: <br /><ul><li>Occurs when you only change a couple of words or phrases, or rearrange sentences
  • 48. When the source of information and ideas are not acknowledged</li></li></ul><li>paraphrasing<br />correct paraphrasing: <br /><ul><li>Occurs when you put the ideas into your own words</li></ul>AND<br /><ul><li>you give full acknowledgment for the ideas in your BIBLIOGRAPHY</li></li></ul><li>Use quotations...<br /><ul><li>When the exact words are relevant to your argument
  • 49. When something is expressed in an unique way
  • 50. When rewriting would cause loss of impact</li></li></ul><li>Citation styles<br />Various methods of citing references to the information that informs your own research<br />Pick a style and stick to it! Common styles are the Harvard, APA, Chicago & Vancouver styles<br />See the Library’s guide on citing correctly!<br />
  • 51.
  • 52.
  • 53.
  • 54.
  • 55. Gathering your resources<br />
  • 56. So....where do I start?<br />

  • 84. Begin a literature search<br />Literature searching is the comprehensive study and interpretation of literature that is related to a particular topic<br />
  • 85. Steps in the process<br />Define your need<br />Refine & revise search<br /> (if necessary)<br />Determine appropriate (scientific) resources<br />Evaluate information gathered<br />Search!<br />
  • 86. Define your need<br /><ul><li>Look at your research question, topic or assignment and identify what the core concepts are
  • 87. This will help guide your search in the right direction and provide a framework for searching
  • 88. To do this identify the key words or synonyms that describe your core concepts</li></li></ul><li>Example:Find references on how food preservatives affect the growth of microorganisms<br />
  • 89. narrows your search<br />additives AND microorganisms<br />broadens your search<br />bacteria OR virus<br />narrows your search<br />additives NOT emulsifiers<br />
  • 90. Other search techniques<br />To expand your search:<br /><ul><li>Use synonyms, related terms or broader terms
  • 91. Use both American and English spellings, e.g., fetus OR foetus</li></ul>To narrow your search:<br /><ul><li>Limit by year, language, type of publication...
  • 92. Use more specific search terms
  • 93. Use phrases, e.g., “drug therapy”</li></li></ul><li>Determine appropriate sources<br />BEFORE you start searching, make a list of where you might find information<br /><ul><li>Books – Library Catalogue(s) – reference material
  • 94. Journal Articles – e-journals, review articles
  • 95. Databases
  • 96. Organisation – Library Subject Portals, Intute portal e.g.,(http://www.intute.ac.uk/agriculture/)

  • 101. Library catalogue searching<br />NOT<br />
  • 102. Tip!<br />Textbooks often have many different editions<br />Use the “sort by” function to sort by date to see which is the latest edition…<br />
  • 103. e-books!<br />
  • 104. Reference titles – dictionaries, encyclopaedias<br />
  • 105. A few examples….<br />
  • 106. Electronic (online) resources<br />
  • 107. Electronic (online) resources<br />
  • 108.
  • 109. Search journals by title...<br />
  • 110. Exercise!<br />Log in to the Library’s findit system and search for the following journal:<br />Nature Reviews Molecular Cell Biology<br /><ul><li>access the journal via the Nature link (NOT EBSCOhost)
  • 111. find review articles on apoptosis via the “web focuses” section of the journal’s website</li></li></ul><li>Browse journals by subject area...<br />
  • 112.
  • 113. Search databases by title...<br />
  • 114. ...or browse by subject area<br />
  • 115. ...or browse by subject area<br />
  • 116. Exercise!<br />Search for the following database:<br />Genetics Abstracts<br />You are trying to find articles on programmed cell death or apoptosis in plants<br />You want your search terms to appear in the title of the article<br />Limit your search to journal articles published in the last 5 years only<br />Once located, get the full text of one of the articles by clicking on the button<br />
  • 117.
  • 118. Conduct a search of many databases by subject in one go<br />
  • 119. Now let’s go back to our research question<br />
  • 120. Example:Find references on how food preservatives affect the growth of microorganisms<br />
  • 121. Exercise!<br />Consider this research question:<br />Do pathogens manipulate death responses in plant cells? <br /><ul><li>Identify the key concepts, consider synonyms, and compose a search query using connectors (AND, OR)
  • 122. Do an advanced search in PubMed database and limit your search to the last 5 years
  • 123. How many results do you find? </li></li></ul><li>
