I also highly recommend looking at the Full-text articles: General info. tab.

SciFinder

NOTE THAT IN ORDER TO USE SCIFINDER, YOU MUST FIRST *REGISTER* WITH SCIFINDER FROM AN ON-CAMPUS COMPUTER. (Below is a link to instructions about how to register.)

The electronic version of the print publication "Chemical Abstracts," SciFinder comprehensively covers the world-wide literature of chemistry, including journal articles, patents, conference proceedings, theses and dissertations, technical reports, government documents, etc.  Search by research topic, author name, DOI, patent number, chemical name, chemical structure, chemical reaction, etc.  Coverage dates: 1907-present

Rutgers no longer has an 8-seat limit for SciFinder. We now have unlimited access!  However, the system is still currently set to disconnect any workstation that is idle for more than 10 minutes (i.e., no commands entered into the system for 10 minutes). So if you become immersed in reading a list of documents retrieved from one of your searches, you may be momentarily surprised when a 10 minute warning screen pops up and you are given the option of continuing or being automatically disconnected.


Note: The client version of SciFinder was discontinued on June 30, 2011.

SciFinder Search Tips

1. Looking for review articles on a specific topic?

  • Explore References
    • --> Research Topic
    • ----> Document Type: Review

2. Looking for articles published during a specific time period?

  • On the results page, click on the Refine tab (on the left side)
    • --> Publication Year

3. SciFinder searches both the CAPLUS and MEDLINE databases, which sometimes results in duplicate results.  To prevent this:

  • Under Tools (near the top)
    • --> Remove Duplicates
