How to set up citation alerts ...

... in Web of Science, Scopus and Google Scholar. For those of you who can't make the workshop this week, or who would like a quick reminder.

Web of Science



Search Web of Science for the article you are interested in. If you find it, click on the article title and then click on the Create Citation Alert link on the right-hand side of the page. You will need to login to, or create, a Web of Science account to activate the alert.

Scopus



Search Scopus for the article you are interested in. If you find it, click on the article title and then click on the Set Citation Alert link on the right-hand side of the page. You will need to login to, or create, a Scopus account to activate the alert.

You can also set-up an RSS feed by clicking on the Set Citation Feed link. You do not need a Scopus account to create a RSS feed.

Google Scholar

 


Search Google Scholar for the article or book you are interested in. If you find it, click on the Cited By link under the item (there will not be a link if the item has not yet been cited). Then click on the Create Alert link on the left-hand side of the page. 

You do not need a Google account to create an alert, just use whatever email address you prefer the alert to be sent to.

Inserting special characters in EndNote/RefWorks


When importing references into software like EndNote or RefWorks you might find special characters and diacritical marks are stripped out.

You can edit the reference in the software and re-insert the appropriate character in several ways:
1) Copy and past the character in.

2) If you using a Windows computer with a number pad you can hold down the ALT key and type in a numerical code for the character you want e.g. ALT 130 will insert é.

There is a list of Alt Codes available at http://www.alt-codes.net/

Penn State University has an excellent guide to typing in accents and special characters in Windows or Macs. Including Alt codes, Mac codes and how to use the character map/viewer.

These tips can also be applied in other software and web interfaces, as well as in bibliographic software. ☺ = ALT 1

Inserting Citations & References into PowerPoint with EndNote

EndNote X7, which is available on University computers, now has a toolbar for inserting citations and references into PowerPoint.


1)    Open up PowerPoint and place your cursor where you wish to insert a citation or a reference.
2)    Click on the EndNote X7 tab.
3)    Choose the reference style you want to use from the drop-down menu.
4)    Click Insert Citation or Insert Reference
5)    Search for the reference you want or search on * to bring up a list of all your references.
6)    Click on Insert.

You will need to insert the citation and the references separately as this is not a Cite While You Write toolbar like the one in Word.






















Your New Doctoral College Reading Room

The Doctoral College Reading Room, at the front of the first floor of the library, is now designed for use by PGR students and staff only.

The space includes a separate Silent Study area with desks and computers, a quiet area with desks and informal seating, and a bookable group study room.

We would encourage PGR students and staff to make full use of this space.

Masters students now have a separate Graduate Reading Room elsewhere on the first floor.

As part of the new arrangements there is now a Consultation Room, which we are also using for upcoming events, including Shut Up & Write! and Research Data Drop-in Clinics.
