Subject Databases for Engineering

Why use these as opposed to google or other search engines? Subject databases index current scholarly research on various topics published in thousands of academic journals and are the ideal way to find out what’s new in your subject. You may need to use several to locate the information you need as no single database indexes every journal publication.

ANTE: Abs NewTech & Eng Engineering Village Info4Education
ASTI : App Sci & Tech Index Knovel Library Science Direct
Standards (IS, ISO, EN) IEEE Xplore Digital Library
Web of Science

Citing Your Sources

Citing and referencing the information sources used in research is essential to avoid plagiarism. See the Kevin St Library Referencing and citing guide for introduction purposes. Another useful link is How to Avoid Plagiarism. Each subject has it's own citation style so check with a SEES course co-ordinator if in doubt. The College of Engineering often uses either the Harvard or IEEE citation styles and two examples are:

Journal Abbreviations

Abbreviated journal titles may be required depending on the citation style used. Some useful tools which 'translate' the full journal title into the abbreviated version are:

    1. Web of Science Journals
    2. All that JAS

Bibliographic citation software

Various freeware options can be used to manange, cite and store your citations
    1. Endnote Basic
    2. Zotero
    3. Mendeley
    4. ReadCube
    5. REFolution
