1 Chemistry 2281G Library Session Shiyi Xie Allyn & Betty Taylor Library Jan 20-22,

2 Agenda The research & publication cycle and the literature search process Scholarly literature vs. popular literature Chemistry information sources Plagiarism ACS citation style 2

3 3

4 Scholarly Literature Books Proceedings Volumes (based on conferences; original research or literature reviews) Monographs (a single topic in detail) Handbooks Encyclopaedias Journals Articles Reviews (Written by subject experts; evaluating results from published literature; a guide to the original literature) Notes Communications (AKA: letter/correspondence) 4

5 Scholarly Journals: Peer-review Process What is it? How does it work? Video 5

6 Popular vs. Scholarly Literature Group Exercise (5 min): You will be given two types of publications: scholarly journals, and popular (or trade) magazines. Identify (and write down) the main differences between them. Share with the class. 6

7 Magazine – PopularJournal - Scholarly Content cover a wide range of popular interest topics, maybe with personal opinions and anecdotes contain original research data Author general public; an interested non-specialist a scholar with subject expertise Audience general public scholars, researchers, students Language understandable to most readers complex with specialized terminology Reference does not usually contain bibliographies further research sources are cited

8 Scholarly Journal Articles are written on a very specific topic are short, like a book chapters are well-organized (in sections): abstract, introduction, methods, results, discussion, conclusion, etc. 8

9 How to recognize a peer-reviewed (refereed) journal Judge by looking Consult Ulrich’s Periodicals DirectoryUlrich’s Periodicals Directory Quick exercise: Type your journal titles into Ulrich’s Periodical Directory. Are they refereed? 9

10 Scholarly vs. Popular Literature Why is this important? 10

11 Background Information Where is it? How do you find it? 11

12 Where is it? – Monographs (books) – Encyclopaedias: quick overviews of fields – Handbooks: chemical properties, experimental procedures, safety information, etc. – *Review articles/ Literature Review Find them using: – Library Catalogue – Library Program Guides >> Chemistry >> Encyclopedias or Handbooks – *Databases – anything else? Background Information 12

13 Background Information: Library Catalogue: demo & hands-on Use Keyword Search or Subject Search (unless you know Title/Author) Check the status (“Currently…”), get Location and Call Number Recall a title via Request Item Note: Use Journal Title Search to determine if the library has a journal volume & issue that you are after (print or online) 13

14 Background Information: Other sources demo Encyclopedia: A quick overview of a field (e.g., Kirk- Othmer) Handbook: Chemical Properties, experimental procedures, safety information, etc. (e.g., CHEMnetBASE) 14

15 Primary Information Where is it? How do you find it? 15

16 Published results of original research. Helps you understand current state of research. Where is it? – Journal articles – Patents – Conference proceedings – Dissertations & theses How do you find it? Primary Information 16

17 How do you find it? – Web of Science – Scopus – Reaxys (Chemistry database) – SciFinder (Chemistry database) – Dissertations & Theses (ProQuest database portal) – Patent databases (tab on Program Guide) – others? Primary Information 17

18 Break 10 min 18

19 Sample Topic The application of zeolites to the treatment of wastewater 19

20 Literature Search Tips 1.State our research question 2.Break our topic into individual concepts 3.Identify multiple keywords for each concept Tip: conduct an initial search, look at the results, identify keywords 4.Connect keywords using OR, AND, (), “”, * 5.Run search, review search results 6.Revise search strategy as necessary 20

21 The application of zeolites to the treatment of wastewater Sample Topic 21

27 AND, OR, (), “”, * ANDing is demANDing OR finds mORe (process these terms together) 27

28 Sample Search Terms zeolite zeolites treatment purification Purify wastewater (waste water) (polluted water) AND OR AND 28

29 Sample Search Terms zeolite* treat* purif* wastewater “waste water” “polluted water” AND OR AND 29

30 Sample search zeolite* AND treat* OR purif* AND wastewater OR “waste water” OR “polluted water” 30

31 1.State our research question 2.Break our topic into individual concepts 3.Identify multiple keywords for each concept Tip: conduct an initial search, look at the results, identify keywords 4.Connect keywords using OR, AND, (), “”, * 5.Run search, review search results 6.Revise search strategy as necessary Literature Search Tips 31

32 Demo & Hands-on Web of Science zeolite* AND treat* OR purif* AND wastewater OR “waste water” OR “polluted water” 32

33 Demo & Hands-on Reaxys – Ask Reaxys Literature Search e.g. anticancer activity of green tea Substance Search e.g. catechin Reaction Search e.g. preparation of catachin – Query forms with more search features for Literature; Substance; Reaction; Physical Properties; Spectra Data; Natural Product 33

34 Plagiarism What is it? How do I avoid it? 34 Video

35 For more information see: Library Home  Research  Citing and Writing  Plagiarism (tutorial) You can also get to the tutorial page using the link in the CHEM 2281G library session guide. 35

36 Citing Your References Why? 36

37 Citing Your References… shows you are aware of past research helps support your arguments makes it clear what is your own intellectual work provides readers with access to original sources helps you avoid plagiarism 37

38 Citing using The ACS Style Guide, 3rd ed. - In Text Citing References in Text:  Using superscript numbers e.g., The primary structure of *** has been determined. 7  Using italic numbers in parentheses e.g., The primary structure of *** has been determined (7).  Using author name and year of publication in parentheses. e.g., The primary structure of *** has been determined (Robinson, 2010). 38

39 Periodicals: Recommended Formats Author 1; Author 2; Author 3;... Title of Article. Journal Abbreviation Year, Volume, startpage-endpage. Author 1; Author 2; Author 3;... Journal Abbreviation Year, Volume, startpage-endpage. Chatterjee, S.; Goyal, A.; Shah, S.I. Inorganic Nanocomposites for the Next Generation Photovoltaics. Mater. Lett. 2006, 60, Note: List all author names in a reference citation. Citing using The ACS Style Guide, 3rd ed. - Reference List 39

40 Finding Journal abbreviation/full title by CASSI or Journal Citation Reports (links are on Chem2281 Library Guide)Chem2281 Library Guide e.g., for: Journal of Polymer Science, Part A: Polymer Science Use: J. Polym. Sci., Part A: Polym. Sci. Refer to the Chemistry program guide for citation style guides (accessible via the left side navigation panel) A quick guide on ACS style guidelines by UW-Madison Libraries Library guide for citing and writing Citing using The ACS Style Guide, 3rd ed. - Tips 40
