10 How to evaluate a search When you search through a library catalogue, you often have a fairly clear picture of what you are looking for. Evaluation of the material that you find is done successively as you obtain it. However the process is different when evaluating references obtained from a database or an Internet search. This section provides you with some important things to think about before you evaluate your references 10

11 Quality Are you searching in a database? The material in the databases is assessed, evaluated and scientifically scrutinised. Many of these databases can be accessed via Internet. Are you searching on the Internet? One of the main disadvantages with the Net is that the information is not subject to scientific scrutiny. Anyone can publish whatever they like on the Net. In addition, the same search can provide different results with different search tools and at different times. Not infrequently searches on the Net can lead to dead links to Web pages that have disappeared from cyber space like dying stars. 11

12 How to find original documentation? There are several ways to find original documentation. You may search in: –library catalogues, for example the KTHB katalog or LIBRIS, –electronical journals or books, –SAMSÖK. 12

13 How to search the library catalogue the KTHB Catalogue, which is an example of a local catalogue, and the LIBRIS Catalogue which is the joint national catalogue for most of the public research libraries in Sweden. 13

18 How to search electronic journals An increasing number of journals are now available in electronic form. From 1995 many of them are available only in electronic form Check the e-journal database. By clicking "E-resources" and then "E-journals" at the KTHB Web page you can access thousands of electronic journals in full text. Most of our E-journals are also accessible in LIBRIS, the joint national catalogue. Click on E-resources in LIBRIS in order to exclude printed material. Freely available E-journals can be found by clicking on Full Text Archives. Anyone visiting the KTH main library or branches has direct access to E-journals. If you want to access the KTHB E-journals from your home, visit Access to Electronic Resources on and off KTH Campus.KTHB Web page E-resources in LIBRIS Full Text Archives Access to Electronic Resources on and off KTH Campus 18

25 How to write a reference list? Using the material of others without providing the source is theft and therefore a punishable offence. The aim of the reference list is to make it possible for the reader to find the publication, that is the original document you are referring to. Therefore the written reference must contain particular details. By clicking on "E-resources" and "Reference Works" at the KTHB Web page you can find instructions on how to write references under the heading "Writing". 25

26 Printed material Publications are referred to in various ways. A book requires different information than a newspaper article, a conference presentation, a report or a patent. There is a however a general scheme to follow that covers the basic details required for being able to find the original document. These basic details are: author, year of publication, title, and source. Source varies according to the publication: books - provide the name of the publisher, the publishing area, part, volume or print/reprint and ISBN; journal articles - journal title (abbreviated according to the accepted praxis), volume, number/issue, page reference and ISSN; reports - publisher, publishing area and report number; and conference presentation - conference name, title, venue, date, pages, publisher, ISSN/ISBN. 26

27 Web material The Web "lives" you ought to provide the date that you found the Web page. Web pages are being constantly updated, and it is not definite that you will be able to find the same Web page again. Use greater than and less than symbols as brackets around the Web address. When referring to an article on the Web include the following: the author(s), the title of the article within quotation marks, the original publishing date/latest update of the Web page, the name of the organisation that owns the Web page, the date you visited the Web page, and the URL (Web page address). 27

31 Avoiding plagiarism The availability of text in digital form increases the possibility of accidentally using someone else's material without acknowledgement Make sure you record all the details of the material you make notes on at the time so that you know who’s it is later By all means use quotes and paraphrased material but cite it properly 31
