|We now have a one year subscription to the Henry Stewart Talks - Biomedical & Life Sciences Collection. There are over 1500 online lectures and seminars, including many UC Berkeley Faculty; covering biochemistry, cancer, cell biology, drug discovery, genetics, immunology, microbiology and more.
Web of Knowledge databases including Web of Science, BIOSIS Previews, CAB Abstracts and Global Health, Data Citation Index, Inspec, and Zoological Record deployed a new user interface beginning January 12, 2014. Among the changes:
Video tutorials on specific features of the new interface can be viewed here: http://wokinfo.com/training_support/training/web-of-science/
Live online trainings occur monthly. This month they begin Tuesday, Feb. 11, at 11 am PST. The trainings are free, but advance registration is required: http://wokinfo.com/training_support/training/
Quick Reference Cards and factsheets for many Web of Knowledge resources can be downloaded here: http://wokinfo.com/training_support/guidesfactsheets/
You can always contact a UC Berkeley librarian with your questions: http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/Help/research_help.html
Now Available from the Library: Scopus! *Training scheduled*
Representatives from SCOPUS will be here today - in the Bioscience and Natural Resources Library Training Room on February 27, 2014. 10-11am, for all staff; 11-12am for all researchers. Please attend either drop-in session.
Please send your comments to: http://goo.gl/HCMk7f
California Digital Library has purchased a one-year trial to Scopus, a large abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature and more, with smart tools to track, analyze and visualize research.
Come try it out! No registration required. Use the training room PCs or bring your own laptop.
Scopus contains over 50 million records in all disciplines, with more than half the content originating from outside North America.
Use the Journal Analyzer tool to compare journals on a variety of parameters:
Scopus also integrates with Embase: Records in Embase with citing articles will have a link to open Scopus so one can view the citing articles. Also, Scopus is considered an essential database to search when conducting systematic reviews
UC-wide access to Scopus ends on December 31, 2014; at that time each campus will decide whether or not to subscribe.
Hours for the Marian Koshland Bioscience Library from Saturday, December 21 2013 through Monday, January 21 2014:
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory announced the launch Monday of bioRxiv (pronounced "bio-archive"), an online repository for unpublished preprints in the life sciences. Submission, storage, and access are free.
BioRxiv accepts articles in any of 23 life science subject areas, although it is not intended for medical studies or clinical trials. Authors submitting to bioRxiv will assign their article to a subject area and categorize it as New Results, Confirmatory Results, or Contradictory Results. Articles submitted to bioRxiv will not be peer-reviewed, but they will be screened for relevant content.
Preprint servers make research findings available quickly, and allow pre-publication comments to be made on article drafts. Authors can post revised versions of articles; however, once an article is posted to bioRxiv it is assigned a digital object identifier (doi), becomes citable, and so cannot be removed.
BioRxiv is modelled on and is intended to complement arXiv, the preprint server for physics, computer science, and allied disciplines, which has been in existence for more than 20 years and which now contains nearly one million preprints.
