    1. 1. More Chemistry Tips<br />The Cage-Match edition<br />for CHEM381 – 2011<br />Week 2<br />
    2. 2. Last week we covered…<br />Comparison of Google Scholar and SciFinder<br />Google’s much faster, but less ideal information<br />Finding authors, who published on specific topics is easier in SciFinder<br />Some other databases<br />Drawing structures on ChemSpider<br />
    3. 3. Today we want to cover…<br />Keeping a log<br />Note where you’re searching, what keywords/options you search with, and what kinds of results you’re getting<br />ACS writing style<br />
    4. 4. Cage match! The Literature<br />Doesn’t say if the full text is there<br />Can refine by topic, document type, etc<br />Lots of ways to sort<br />Who’s cited who<br />Need to fiddle around more to find options. egcitings– don’t stick out<br />Lots of links to follow to view articles<br />Can make a citation map<br />More results / less results<br />Type in area of research and get heaps of results<br />Search for exactly what you want – language, year, author, etc<br />“Keep me posted” for new research<br />Who’s cited who<br />More results / less results<br />
    5. 5. Lots of recent articles<br />More refined – seemed more relevant, not so general<br />Doesn’t highlight the search terms/keywordsin results summary but does in the abstract<br />Looks like acquiring PDFs might be easier (with a few glitches)<br />Sorted by year – get the most up-to-date<br />Can refine search<br />Includes pre-prints<br />Got *lots* more results than the others – similar level of relevance<br />“Related documents” – based on shared references<br />Scopus<br />
    6. 6. Review articles – SciFinder<br />
    7. 7. More Review articles<br />
    8. 8. Theses - SciFinder<br />
    9. 9. More theses – OAIster<br />
    10. 10. Patents – SciFinder<br />
    11. 11. More Patents <br />
    12. 12. Safety Data Sheets<br />
    13. 13. Evaluating Resources<br />Is it…<br />and...<br />relevant?<br />Who is it written for?<br />basic/advanced?<br />What kind of research is it?<br />How far along is the research?<br />up-to-date?<br />What questions haven’t they answered yet?<br />accurate?<br />
    14. 14. Citing – ACS style<br />
    15. 15. Citing<br />
    16. 16. Using Endnote - 1<br />
    17. 17. Using Endnote - 2<br />
    18. 18. Using Endnote - 3<br />
    19. 19. Summary<br />How to access SciFinder<br />Scopus, Web of Science – through Library > Databases<br />Find bibliographies for authors, and patents, through databases<br />Structure of how journals/companies/databases fit together<br />AND/OR/NOT – AND most useful<br />* after a word egaccumulat* -> accumulates, accumulation<br />
