  2. 2. Finding information in 3 steps -
  3. 3. 1/ Delimit subject, define your research strategy <ul><li>Increasing of information sources is so important that it is necessary to carefully organize yourself </li></ul><ul><li>Clarify limits of your research topic, Prepare the ground </li></ul><ul><li>Separate content… </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>What are the borders of your research ? </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Find Keywords, leading « authors » </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Define date, location, technology, scientific discipline, interdisciplinarity…  limits </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>… and form </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Publications type…(article, book, chapter…) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Informations repository… </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Informations sources..(grey literature, peer-reviewed literature…..) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>-
  4. 4. 2/ Searching information <ul><li>1st step </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Classify documentary researchs sorted by « information silos » (look next slide) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Be careful not to forget resources potentially significant </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Use specialized MetaEngine : OIAster, Scirus, Google Scholar… </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Don’t forget multimedia contents </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Avoid a random method </li></ul></ul></ul>
  5. 5. EMETTEUR - NOM DE LA PRESENTATION Search stage Information Silos Type of information provided Buidling Skeleton Directories Find definitions, keywords, basics of research Encyclopedia, Table datas Find definitions, news concepts, new words , given by specialists Libraries catalogs (Inria, Insa, Sudoc, UJF…) Books, Manuals, Synthesis ; references ; notes, bibliographies ; index…  Metadatas Bibliographies Identify key resources : leading authors, books, conferences…  Metadatas Building Muscle Editors websites (SpringerLink, ACM Digital Library…) Articles journals, proceedings articles, conferences proceedings…..  Full text available via INRIA subscriptions Databases (Web of Science, Pubmed…) Articles journals, proceedings articles, conferences proceedings…..  Full text available via INRIA subscriptions Open Archives Websites (Hal, ArXiv, OAIster…) Full text, bibliographics references….(papers, phd thesis, courses, and more…)  Full text available Brain Stage Patents, standards (ISO…), Technical reports, European Projects (CORDIS).. Define your technological position ; New opportunities ; Technical State of Art …  Datas, grey literature… Scientific events, Directories of scientifics events, Blogs, forums… « Invisible college », news, scientific « integration », scientific « watch », define leading events to follow….  Meetings, Exchanges, Scientific Social Network…
  6. 6. 2/ Search 00 MOIS 2011 - <ul><li>2 nd step – </li></ul><ul><li>Apply the same procedure every time as an industrial process  </li></ul><ul><li>Use the « raking » technical </li></ul><ul><li>To create a precise and thorough search for information you will need to spend some time gathering together relevant search terms </li></ul><ul><li>You can practice many of the search techniques to improve your information literacy and search into the DeepWeb … </li></ul><ul><li>Balance between noise </li></ul><ul><li>and silence </li></ul>Advanced search How to ? Using the right keyword  controlled vocabulary, using brackets «  » Boolean logic  AND +, OR | , NOT - Nested searches (this type of searching is supported in many resources)  create more complex Boolean logic statements. : {pets NOT (cats OR dogs)} AND behaviour Proximity  SAME, NEAR, W n Truncation (right, left..)  * % ? Wildcard  * ? Inside word Saved searches <ul><li>Save a search to run at a later date </li></ul><ul><li> particularly useful if your search statement is complex and lengthy to enter </li></ul>
  7. 7. 3/ Exploit <ul><li>While visiting websites and reading papers  collecting references </li></ul><ul><li>save .pdf </li></ul><ul><li>recording & using citations : </li></ul><ul><li>U sing a reference management software is very usefull : </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li> </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li> >> Gérer une bibliographie </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li> </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>some of them are able to extract metadata directly from the .pdf, </li></ul><ul><li>automatically generate bibliographies </li></ul><ul><li>can help to collaborate with other scientists online </li></ul><ul><li>easily import papers from other research software </li></ul><ul><li>find relevant papers based on what you’re reading…. </li></ul><ul><li>and more features to discover…. </li></ul>-
