Article databases

Searching for Chemistry and related subject area articles can be tricky. Most researchers use Google Scholar or Omni and then move on to Web of Science Core CollectionSciFinder-n and Reaxys for deeper and/or more comprehensive searches. Keyword, property and chemical reaction or structure searching is essential when reviewing resources. 

Consult CASSI for journal name abbreviations which are essential for citations and use interlibrary loan for resources not at Brock. Check Beyond CASSI for historical journal name abbreviations. There are several alternate services that translate journal name abbreviations to full names Web of Science Journal Title Abbreviations, and Brock Library Omni's Journals.

Using figshare is an excellent way to search for figures, data and information.
