  • The “literature” is the written conversation between scientists about what they’ve found out (by reading or experimenting).Searching the literature is all about learning who the cool people are and where they hang out.
  • Research process is iterative – as you learn more, you constantly refine your strategies and even your research question.For the best research questions, the answer doesn’t exist yet! You’re looking for clues that will let you piece together the puzzle yourself.
  • Library Subject Guide for Chemistry has list of useful databases including SciFinder, Web of Science, and Scopus.
