Webtools For Reference Search

  1. 1. Web tools for reference search Wen Ma August,26,2009
  2. 2. <ul><li>In this part which will focus on reference search, what we really want to provide with people are selections with outstanding features. </li></ul><ul><li>(Those I present as the following are only part of search tools and more will be added on by other group members.) </li></ul>
  3. 3. ArXiv http://arxiv.org <ul><li>*Covered areas include physics, mathematics, computer science, nonlinear sciences, quantitative biology and statistics. </li></ul><ul><li>*Users can retrieve papers from arXiv via the web interface. Note that arXiv is an openly accessible, moderated repository. Registered authors may use the web interface to submit their articles to arXiv. Authors can also update their submissions . </li></ul><ul><li>*Listings of newly submitted articles in areas of interest are available via the web interface , via RSS feeds , and by subscription to automatic email alerts . </li></ul>
  4. 4. What is RSS? RSS (most commonly translated as &quot;Really Simple Syndication&quot; but sometimes &quot;Rich Site Summary&quot;) is a family of web feed formats used to publish frequently updated works—such as blog entries, news headlines, audio, and video—in a standardized format
  5. 5. How to search papers? <ul><li>1.If You Know the Archive and Paper Number </li></ul><ul><li>Archived submissions are each assigned a unique identifier of the form yymm.nnnn (or arch-ive/yymmnnn for older submissions). </li></ul><ul><li>2. If You Want to Search for it Via the Web Interface </li></ul><ul><li>Using the world wide web interface, you can search for papers based on archive subject area, title, author, or keywords in the full abstracts. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Advanced search
  7. 7. ISI WEB OF KNOWLEDGE http://apps.isiknowledge.com <ul><li>*All Databases Search — This feature allows you to search across all product databases in your institution's subscription . </li></ul><ul><li>*associated with EndNote </li></ul><ul><li>*Search for records using topic terms, author names, publication names, and publication years. </li></ul><ul><li>*In one or more search fields, enter words or phrases connected by Boolean search operators (AND, OR, NOT, SAME). Use wildcard operators ( * $ ? ) to search for plurals and variant spellings. (example: botan*->botanical review) </li></ul>
  8. 9. PubMed http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/ <ul><li>PubMed lets you search millions of journal citations and abstracts in the fields of medicine, nursing, dentistry, veterinary medicine, the health care system, and preclinical sciences . </li></ul><ul><li>PubMed Central (PMC), the U.S. National Library of Medicine's digital archive of biomedical and life sciences journal literature, providing free access to the full text of articles . </li></ul>
  9. 10. Changing How Search Results are Displayed <ul><li>Summary </li></ul><ul><li>Brief </li></ul><ul><li>Some links… </li></ul>
  10. 11. <ul><li>Searching history </li></ul>
  11. 12. Too many or few citations <ul><li>To limit the number of search results: </li></ul><ul><li>Replace general search terms with more specific ones (e.g., use low back pain instead of back pain). </li></ul><ul><li>Use PubMed’s Limits feature to restrict citations by age group, language, publication type, date, human studies, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>The tool symbol to the right of the filter tabs links you to My NCBI where you can change your filter selections. </li></ul><ul><li>How can I expand my search? </li></ul><ul><li>Click the Related Articles link next to a relevant citation. The link displays a pre-calculated set of PubMed citations closely related to the selected article. </li></ul><ul><li>Change or remove extraneous or specific terms from the search box. </li></ul>
  12. 13. Wolfram http://www75.wolframalpha.com/ <ul><li>Wolfram's long-term goal is to make all systematic knowledge immediately computable and accessible to everyone . They aim to collect and curate all objective data; implement every known model, method, and algorithm; and make it possible to compute whatever can be computed about anything. </li></ul><ul><li>Wolfram|Alpha is not a search engine. It's a computational knowledge engine: it generates output by doing computations from its own internal knowledge base, instead of searching the web and returning links. </li></ul>
  13. 14. A very interesting engine <ul><li>Mathematics||Statistics & Data Analysis|| Physics </li></ul><ul><li>Chemistry ||Materials || Earth Sciences || Life Sciences ||Technological World ||Computational Sciences || </li></ul><ul><li>Web & Computer Systems ||Units & Measures ||Money & Finance ||Dates & Times || Places & Geography || </li></ul><ul><li>Socioeconomic Data || Words & Linguistics || Education … </li></ul>
