find journal articles etc for research use major index databases

}

InfoGate

InfoGate: Use with caution

Find Journal Articles, etc for Research : UseMajor Index Databases
  • Better than Google Scholar
  • Electronic index databases with links to full text for some, not all articles
  • Engineering Village 2 (EV2)
  • Scopus
  • Web of Science
slide42

Library InfoGate

  • Results not sorted by number of hits or relevance
      • you have to scroll down to see which database yields the most hits and check allhits in each database to see if they are relevant or not. The most relevant hit could be listed last
  • Default maximum no. of hits shown is 40
  • Some features in individual databases (e.g. controlled terms) are not supported
      • no. of hits per database might not be as high as you would get from searching individual databases one at a time
slide43

Library InfoGate

  • Searches across a few databases including LINC (i.e. retrieves records for both journal articles and books)
  • Good starting point if you do not know which database to use
slide44

Library InfoGate

research topic
Research Topic

Use of biomaterial in dental applications

before using databases
Before Using Databases
  • Need to construct a proper search statement
    • Identify terms to key in
    • Use Boolean operators OR, AND
  • For Engineering Village 2, use their controlled terms
identify terms to key in search statements

Concept 1

Concept 2

Identify Terms to Key in Search Statements

1. Find concepts

Use of biomaterials in dental applications

2. Think of alternative term/s for each concept

Dental: tooth, teeth

Biomaterial*

biomaterial*represents biomaterial, biomaterials

slide49

Boolean Operators

ORrepresents a union of sets.

The resulting set gets bigger.

Set A: Fruits

Apple Orange

Set B: Vegetables

Lettuce Tomato

Set A OR Set B:

AppleOROrange ORLettuce OR Tomato

slide50

Set A AND Set B

Boolean Operators

ANDrepresents an intersection of sets.The resulting set gets smaller.

Fruits AND Vegetables

Tomato

(Apple OrangeLettuce Tomato)

search statement

Group alternative terms, connect withOR

    • (dental OR toothORteeth)

2. Connect two concepts withAND

(biomaterial*)AND(dental ORtoothORteeth)

Search Statement
term used in engineering village 2
Term Used in Engineering Village 2
  • Controlled Terms
    • Consistent/standard subject terms used to describe the content of a document
    • E.g. “mobile handsets” for mobile phones, handphones, cell phones, cellular phones
  • Useful: once you find a good hit, look at thestandard termsusedto find other good hits
slide53
DEMO on Using EV2

No slides for this demo

more on search statement
More on Search Statement

If your search statement retrieves no records

E.g. you need articles on membrane reactors, but you cannot find hits

  • Use a broader concept/term like “Bioreactor*” instead of specifically “membrane reactor*”
  • Read articles and look through references listed at the end of such articles
