It’s not too late to sign up for tomorrow’s Google Drive workshop!

Posted on: |

Google Drive is an excellent online storage space that allows you to easily create, store, and share files. Drive mirrors the Microsoft Office suite, and allows you to create words docs, spreadsheets, powerpoint presentations, and more. I am personally a huge fan as I can log in from anywhere to access all of my docs. I also love using the Drive suite to share and collaborate with colleagues in real time; multiple people can be in a document at once and edits will be updated in real time. If you are new to Google Drive, check out tomorrow’s workshop and learn all of the basics! You can sign up here. The class takes place from 3:30p-4:30p. Hope to see you there!

Resource Spotlight: Scopus

Posted on: |

Sometimes when we are trying to find relevant research literature, it seems that no matter how many combinations of search terms we use, we still can’t quite find what we need. A different way to search is performing cited reference searching by using that one good article you found, and finding out who has cited the article since it was published, as well as reviewing the list of references used by the article. Next time you have that one good article, try using Scopus to find other relevant research articles.

Scopus is the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature, including scientific journals, books and conference proceedings with access to over 54 million records from 22,000 titles and 5,000 publishers. Scopus works in a similar manner to Web of Science, with one caveat: it actually includes most of the content of Web of Science, plus a lot more. Next time you think you might have hit that searching brick wall, give Scopus a try!
