INDEXES & DATABASES

Use these databases to locate citations or full text for journal articles, conference papers, technical reports and theses in bioengineering. Once you have located relevant articles, search URSUS by journal or book title to determine if Fogler Library owns the item. We may own journals in print or online or both formats. Need to check the record listed as Serials (for print holdings) and E-Serials (for electronic holdings). Must click on the "Restricted Access UM" link to see the online holdings. If we do not own the item you need, consider requesting through Interlibrary Loan. Remember most of the articles listed in these databases cannot be located by using a regular web browser such as Google. These databases provide the means to locating scholarly research articles.

Tips for Searching:

  • Use truncation to allow for the various spellings of a word. Truncation symbol for most databases is the * (asterisk). For example: Comput* will retrieve: computer, computing, computers, computational, etc.
  • Use double quotes to search for an exact phrase: "wave energy" will retrieve much more precise results. Searching without quotes in most databases yields a search for - wave and energy. Finds the words anywhere in the same record not as a phrase.
  • Check the length of the article. Would probably not want to pursue articles under 3 pages unless you are looking for news items to gather information on companies or research labs making news.
  • Use synonyms to make your search more comprehensive. Link synonyms with 'or' operator. For example: underwater or submers*
  • Link concepts with the 'and' operator. Use parentheses to group synonyms together when using one search box. For example: (hybrid* or electric*) and (automobile* or vehicle* or cars or car)
  • When you have located some relevant articles, review the abstract and subject headings of these records. Utilize subject headings for more precise results. Most databases you can click on a subject heading for a new search and then refine this new search with additional keywords.
  • Utilize the bibliography at the end of relevant research papers to expand your list of resources. Some of these references may have errors. It has been found that 20% of the references cited will have an error.

Most relevant databases:

  • Compendex (Engineering Index). Coverage is 1970 - Present. The best multidisciplinary engineering database that indexes over 5000 engineering journals, conferences and technical reports. Use their subject headings to obtain more precise results. Access is provided by the following indexes: author, author's affiliation (university or company), keywords from the abstract and title, subject terms and source title (journal or conference title). Compendex is part of the Engineering Village. In the select database box they provide specialized indexing of the Internet, access to INSPEC (physics, electronics and computer science database). SUGGESTION: Search Compendex and INSPEC together for best results when looking for research papers. For information published before 1970 consult the print copy at Sci Index TA1.E6, 1884 - 1995 in the Science and Engineering Center.
  • BIOSIS Previews. Indexes over 5,200 scholarly journals. Most comprehensive database for biology, biotechnology and molecular biology. Coverage is 1969 - present.

Take your most important known papers and use this index to determine if they have been cited by more recent journal articles. For a citation search, utilize the first author's last name and initials in inverted form (genco j) and the year(s) of publication. No need to try to input the title of the publication.
