Event Details

This workshop will provide an overview about how to find literature, including methods and protocols, using databases relevant to the biological sciences and related fields. This will be an interactive session with time for you to devise a search reflecting your research area and search the databases relevant to your research.

We will concentrate on using BIOSIS Citation Index, a key database in the biological sciences covering molecular biology, botany, zoology, ecology and microbiology as well as biotechnology, biochemistry, pharmacology and public health.

You will also be introduced to Zoological Record, the world’s oldest continuing database of animal biology, covering literature relating to behaviour, biodiversity, conservation, ecology, evolution, genetics, taxonomy and paleontology.

We will then look at searching effectively for methods and protocols using BIOSIS Citation Index and additional resources, such as SpringerNature Experiments.

After attending this workshop you will:

·         be able to formulate search strategies and use database features to search for literature more effectively

·         be able to use alerting features within relevant databases to keep up to date with literature in your subject
