CHEM281 2012

  1. 1. Chemical Information CHEM281 – 2012
  2. 2. We are aiming at…  Finding reliable (and recent) information sources  Finding a paper by specific authors  Finding review articles on particular subjects like biochemicals  Finding information for compounds – formulas, structures, toxicity  Finding out about enzymes – EC numbers  Using Google Scholar  Find out how often a paper has been cited  Formatting a bibliography in the ACS citation style
  3. 3. You already know(I expect)…  Journals have articles relating to the journal topic  A review article sums up other articles written on a subject  Citing = listing what you have read as research or background  References (in-text and at end) are used when the author is  Quoting; or  Referring to facts
  4. 4. Some may already know…  APA-style referencing  How to find papers  Google Scholar  Scopus  Lecturers’ papers  department website  How to locate chemical data  Merck Index, etc.
  5. 5. But we need to know moreabout…  How to find reliable sources  Articles  References  Review articles  Chemical data, EC numbers etc.  Citation counts  How much has an article been cited?  How to reference properly  ACS citation style
  6. 6. Today we will look at… 1. How scientists share information 2. Finding chemical and/or enzyme data 3. Structure drawing (briefly) 4. Finding papers 5. Referencing sources in ACS style
  7. 7. Some ways you could share your results  Give talks  Write them down and send to a friend  Send letters or newsletters  Publish in newspapers  Publish independently – get in touch with a printing press to publish papers or books  Gather articles about the same subject and send out a journal
  8. 8. Journals  “Magazines” for scientists  Narrow subject focus  New issues without end, often regular (quarterly, monthly etc.)  Each issue has articles by a various authors about their research
  9. 9. How could hoaxes be prevented? Repeat the experiment; same results? Check the author’s credentials Employ experts in the subject to edit journals Check ideas against previously published information Peer review by other experts
  10. 10. Peer review Article sent to peers = scientists working in the same field Peers review the article to check  Accuracy  Clarity  Reproducibility Author makes corrections and improvements Publication
  11. 11. Balancing access…  Put journals in a search engine  Easy to find  Big companies manage databases  Articles from many journals all in one place  Articles could be free to view…
  12. 12. … and profit  Charge institutions  Subscription fees or pay-per-article  Free preview, pay for the full article  Free to view, funded by:  advertising  research grants  donations  government  universities
  13. 13. Databases  By publisher vs by subject  Full-text vs citation only  Articles vs data  Precision vs usability  Pay-for vs free  No single one has it all!
  14. 14. So where to start?http://canterbury.libguides.com/chem
  15. 15. handling and storage hazard ratings accidental release measures toxicological dataproperties
  16. 16. reactionsEC numbers organisms inhibitors substrates properties references
  17. 17. (1) properties formula structure drawingweight & much, muchlinks to some more data... articles/patents
  18. 18. (2)
  19. 19. journal review articles articles links to full text (if we have it) Who has cited whom
  20. 20. How would you… cite an article?  Authors  Title of the paper  Where it was published – Journal name  Year published  Volume  Issue  Page numbers
  21. 21. Analysis of a referenceColak, A. T.; Colak, F.; Yesilel, O. Z.;Buyukgungor, O.Synthesis, spectroscopic, thermal, voltammetric studies and biological activity of crystallinecomplexes of pyridine-2,6-dicarboxylic acidand 8-hydroxyquinoline. J. Mol. Struct.2009, 936 (1-3), 67-74.
  22. 22. Summing Up (1)Chemistry Subject Guide  “How do I find?”  Chemical data  Journal articles  Material Safety Data Sheets  Citation guide (ACS)
  23. 23. Summing Up (1)For reliable sources  search in databases that collect peer-reviewed journals  SciFinder, Web of Science, Scopus, Google Scholar Specialist databases:  BRENDA for enzymes and EC numbers  ChemWatch for hazards and material safety data sheets (MSDS)  ChemSpider/ChemSketch for structure, properties, drawing moleculesRead the Screen! Author field Refining document type to “Review” for review articles
