  3. Outline • Overview of library services & resources • Ethical use of information & plagiarism • Core research databases in Physics • Tools for managing your research

  4. Accessing NUS Libraries Library card Library Hours

  5. Graduate Students Library Privileges Additional Services E-forms • Loan entitlement Max 30 items & 1 RBR • Loan periodMain shelves books: 28 daysRBR: 2hrs/Overnight • 3 online renewals for main shelves books • Study Carrels(4 hrs per loan) • Document Delivery Services (DDS) • Intra-library Loan • Inter-library Loan Demo

  6. Services Resources

  7. Overview of Library Resources

  8. Library Resources • Citation of a book • Nielsen, Michael A., & Chuang, Isaac L. (2010). Quantum Computation and Quantum Information. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. Demo

  9. Library Resources • Citation of a book chapter Authors Year Chapter title Fuka, V., Brechler, J. & Jirk, A. (2010). Modelling of stratified and turbulent flow. In D. T. Mihailovic & C. Gualtieri (Eds.), Advances in environmental fluid mechanics (pp. 67-86). Singapore: World Scientific. Book title Editors

  10. Library Resources • Citation of a journal article • Castro Neto, A. H.; Guinea, F.; Peres, N. M. R.; Novoselov, K. S.; Geim, A. K., The electronic properties of graphene. Rev. Mod. Phys.2009, 81 (1), 109-162. • A. C. Ferrari et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 97, 187401 (2006). Journal title/name: “reviews of modern physics”

  11. Library Proxybookmarklet • http://libguides.nus.edu.sg/proxy_bookmarklet • A browser plugin • Use it to quickly check if we have a subscription to the journal & have full-text access to the article Demo

  12. Theses & Dissertations • Before Sep 2003 (Print) • LINC(Call nos. QC3 for Physics) • NUS • Masters (by research)& PhD theses • After Sep 2003 (e-theses) • ScholarBank@NUS • Purchased theses • (Print, CD-ROM) • Proquestdissertations & theses (Worldwide, UK & Ireland) • Theses databases • Springer theses • LINC • Non-NUS(Foreign) • Repositories of universities Guides: Physics, How do I find theses? Demo

  13. FAQs Can you return books at any of the NUS Libraries? • Ans: • Main shelves books • RBR booksAlways return RBR books at the Loans Desk of the home library. Return through book chutes only if library is closed.

  14. Login IDs & passwords (FAQs ) Matriculation no. (e.g. A007111X) & Library PIN Check your library account Renew items online Reserve/Place hold Request items in closed stacks Borrow items at self check-out stations NUSNET ID (e.g. A007111) & Password Access NUS networked services/resources, e.g. NUS mails, IVLE Log-in to library portal to use DDS, inter- & intra-library e-forms Access library subscribed e-resources (e.g. e-books, e-journals & databases)

  15. Login Interfaces NUSSTU/a007111

  16. Ethical Use of Information & Plagiarism

  17. Copying of Library Materials • Strictly for the purpose of research or study • Limitations for Copying • In a nutshell, • Published books (> 10 pages)Not more than one chapter or 10% of number of pages • JournalsNot more than whole or part of one Article in a Journal unless the Articles relate to the same subject matter.

  18. Copying of library materials • Electronic Materials • Not more than • 10% of the total number of bytes in the Work; or • 10% of the total number of words in the Work or 10% of the contents of the Work; or • One chapter of the Work, where it exceeds any of the limits set out above

  19. E-Resources Appropriate Use Policy No excessive copying or downloading

  20. Avoid Plagiarism “In NUS, it is defined as the practice of taking someone else’s work or ideas and passing them off as one’s own.” Source: Plagiarism | Breeze presentationby Centre for English Language Communication NUS plagiarism prevention websitehttp://www.cit.nus.edu.sg/plagiarism-prevention Plagiarism prevention service

  21. Citation & Bibliography Two places to cite the references you have used (i) Author-date system In-text citationWithin a sentence Bibliography/References At the end of the document e.g. APA style (American Psychological Association)

  22. Citation & Bibliography (ii) Numerical system In-text citation References e.gs. ACS style (American Chemical Society) AIP style (American Institute of Physics) Citation styles guide, http://libguides.nus.edu.sg/citation

  23. Tools for Managing Your Research Bibliography Management Software Comparison of reference management software http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_reference_management_software Video

  24. JabRef(LaTeXusers) • An open source reference management software (Free) • Current version 2.9.2, http://jabref.sourceforge.net • Java-based -- platform/OS independent • Uses BibTeX files (*.bib) as its native format • Provides a easy-to-use GUI for editing BibTeX entries • Provides filters to import other file format (e.g. *.ris) and data from databases such as Medline, JSTOR, etc

  25. EndNote • Stores and organises references from many sources • Inserts these references in a Word document • Formats references automatically accordingto a predefined citation style EndNote Guide, http://libguides.nus.edu.sg/endnote Demo

  26. Ways to add references to EndNote library • Direct export • Online search • Import PDF • Manual input • Import file EndNote Library

  27. Core Research Databasesin Physics

  28. Core Physics Databases • Subscribed by NUS LibrariesINSPEC(Physics, electronics & computing, 1896 --)Compendex(Engineering, 1969 --)Web of Science(Multidisciplinary, 1900 --)Scopus(Multidisciplinary, 1960 --) • Preprints: arXiv.org • Free: Google Scholar Subject Guides: Physics

  29. Break (5mins)

  30. List search terms • Choose a database • Form search statement Web of Science • 1 • 2 • 3 Keywords, synonyms, alternative words

  31. Web of Science Core Collection • One of the largest citation index 52 million papers, 800 million citations • Multidisciplinary Organised into 250 categories covering Science, Social Sciences, Arts & Humanities • Content: Journals, conference proceedings • Year coverage: 1900 -- present • Updated weekly (Thomson Reuters, 2013)

  32. Citation Network in Web of Science 2005 1997 2004 2009 Times Cited Cited References 2006 2000 2000 1988 Related Records 1999 2001 2000

  33. Topic Study of electronic structure of graphene using spectroscopic ellipsometry and ultrafast pump-probe techniques

  34. Managing search results • Read review articles for historical development of a subject • Refine by subject, etc • Identify high impact papers • Trace research progress using citations

  35. Current Awareness Consider subscribing to • Publisher & journal alerting services • Database alerting services e.g. Saved search alert • Citation alerts • RSS feeds

  36. Journal Impact Factor Average number of times articles from the journal published in the past two years have been cited in the JCR year Cites in 2012 to 2010 & 2011 articles Impact Factor = (2012) No. of articles published in 2010 &2011 A journal having an Impact Factor of 2.5 means on average, the articles published one or two year ago have been cited two and a half times

  37. Journal citation reports

  38. Journal citation reports

  39. Immediacy Index no. of citations (in current year) (in current year) no. of articles (in current year) Journal immediacy index • Average number of times an article is cited in the year it is published • Indicates how quickly articles in a journal are cited =
