Navigating the scientific literature …
How to read a scientific article – jlp-annotated (by Nat Wheelwright | annotated by Jennifer Purrenhage) ::: You may find these tips helpful as you sift and winnow long lists of search results down to a manageable list for more careful review.
Google Scholar is a great place to begin your literature searches. But as long as you have access to it, WEB of SCIENCE is a powerful tool to conduct structured literature searches.
Another great place for lit-searching (assuming you’re still a student/staff at UNH) is the main search bar on the UNH Library webpage — this will search for items in the UNH Library collection and items available through Inter-library Loan (ILL).
Remember: Don’t limit your lit resources to only those you can get electronically — you may miss out on some very important information (and you’re definitely conducting a biased lit search).
