DATABASES AVAILABLE THROUGH NSU LIBRARIES (articles)
To access the below databases, go to the library’s main page (http://library.nsuok.edu/nsuba/), click on “Articles and Databases,” then select the “Natural Sciences and Mathematics” link.

Remember the two most important Boolean operators (AND and OR).  If your searches are retrieving too many hits, try narrowing your search with AND (e.g., enzyme AND glycoprotein).  If you are getting too few, try OR (e.g., DNA OR genome).

BioOne
BioOne sees sustainable scholarly publishing as an inherently collaborative enterprise connecting authors, nonprofit publishers, academic institutions, research libraries, and research funders in the common goal of maximizing access to critical research.

EBSCOHost
A powerful online reference system accessible via the Internet. It offers forty individual databases (proprietary full text and popular) from leading information providers.

This database provides full text from more than 100 periodicals dating as far back as 1995, in addition to indexing and abstracts for nearly 300 periodicals back to 1984. With graphs, charts, diagrams, photos and illustrations that convey an abundance of scientific information, this is a must-have resource for science-related questions.

Contains a wealth of essential material for learning and detailed research in a single, easily-searched database. With the full text of articles from over 2,500 publications, and indexing and abstracts from nearly 3,600 publications, this database provides invaluable support for research in all core undergraduate subjects and for cross-disciplinary work.

Highwire -- Hosts publications from researchers, clinicians, students, and other scholars seeking the best online research from a vast database of full-text scholarly, high-impact materials. (Stanford University)

Science Direct
The world's largest electronic collection of science, technology, and medicine full-text and bibliographic information. It offers a wide variety of features and content.

And, if we do not have access to an article you need in our print collection or online, you can always place a request with our Interlibrary Loan (ILL) department. This service is available at no cost to you.

PLAGIARISM
When using the work of other people, always remember to

  • Give credit if you use their words (quotation).
  • Give credit if you use their sentiments or ideas (paraphrasing/summarizing)
  • Give credit if you use their methods, techniques, or conclusions (replication/modification of prior work).

Avoid accidental plagiarism through proper citation methods.

EVALUATING SOURCES (some things to consider)
“Scholarly” (Peer-Reviewed) versus “Popular” Journals
Wikipedia – a great starting point.
Open web versus proprietary online databases?
Remember to ask yourself the five “Ws” – “Who, what, when, where, and why?”

REVIEW VERSUS RESEARCH
It is important to distinguish between review articles and research articles. A review article’s primary purpose is not to present new research, but to summarize, analyze, discuss, and provide an overview of previously published work on a topic. A research article is designed to present new research, methods, and/or findings.  Research articles often employ the IMRAD (Introduction, Methods, Research, and Discussion) format.
