Evaluation and Search Strategy Questions

UNFORMATTED ATTACHMENT PREVIEW

Purpose: This unit introduces another evaluation and search strategy: citation metrics. We’ll also bring journal impact factor to your attention. Although we only use Web of Science and Google Scholar in this unit, please be aware that the database Scopus is a similar tool for citation tracking and finding impact factors. Accessing each from the library’s Databases A-Z page or a research guide will offer UIC full-text options. (Please note: subscription databases, such as Web of Science and Scopus, only index certain academic journals so the “times cited” numbers will often be lower than in Google Scholar.) A quiz will review proper APA formatting for books & book chapter references. Objectives: At the completion of this unit, the BHIS graduate student will be able to: • • Use prospective and retrospective search processes to locate additional citations in Web of Science and Google Scholar Retrieve and evaluate citation metrics relevant to a problem-based information need • Identify the journal impact factor of specific journals using journal citation reports Checklist: Use this checklist to ensure that you have completed all the Unit 7 Assignments (Note: this is an abbreviated list; for complete details/requirements please see assignment below): __1. Read & review Google Scholar & Citation Metrics tutorials __2. Complete the Citation Metrics Assignment __3. Read & review Journal Impact Factor tutorials (150 word minimum) __4.

It’s similar to the “If you like ___ you’ll also like ___” or “Customers who looked at/purchased this also looked at/purchased ___” that you see on websites like Netflix, Amazon, etc. Citation chasing (sometimes called “citation mining”) is a more straightforward method to finding additional relevant resources from those you’ve already discovered on your topic by looking at the references from a resource you have, or looking at who has cited your reference. In your assignment, you’ll practice going forward, but keep in mind that it may also be helpful for you to check the references of articles you have collected to find additional relevant resources (going backward). Some databases, like Web of Science and Scopus, will include hyperlinks to th
