Howdy! This guide provides information about Web of Science and EndNote for your CHEM 481 class. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have questions.
Web of Science
Web of Science is a multidisciplinary citation database that covers over 250 disciplines, including 7,100 science journals. Contains over 40 million citations and coverage is 1898-present.
The ACS Style Guide is the style manual for American Chemical Society publications, as well as many others.
EndNote X7 - Citation Management Software
EndNote X7 allows you to manage and build bibliographies. It also takes citations downloaded from databases and converts them into a consistent format that matches almost any bibliographic style you might need. The Cite While You Write feature allows you to effortlessly transfer citations from your EndNote library into a Word document. When you finish your paper, your reference list and bibliography will be done.
Students, faculty, and staff can obtain a free copy of EndNote X7 for personal use though Texas A&M Information Technology. Go to the following URL to order your copy: https://software.tamu.edu. Additional information about EndNote can be found on the Libraries' EndNote Subject Guide.
Here are the two URLs you need to edit/add under Edit -> Preferences so that EndNote citations link to the full-text and to attach pdfs automatically:
OpenURL Path: http://ezproxy.library.tamu.edu/login?url=http://linkresolver.tamu.edu:9003/tamu
