BACKGROUND: Last week, you learned about and used Journal Finder. This week, I want to make sure you know about two more ways to find full articles when you have a citation but not the full article: Google Scholar and Interlibrary Loan.
A. The 3 methods:
1. Find a Journal -- gets you to all of the journals to which the Library subscribes. We pay for the journal access and you get access for free.
2. Google Scholar - gets you to journal articles that are available without subscription on the Internet (and may get some subscription material via methods too complicated to explain here).
3. Interlibrary Loan - is a solution for getting full articles that you cannot find for free using Journal Finder or Google Scholar.
B. Employing the three methods
When you have a citation for an article, but not the full article, you can start by searching either Journal Finder or Google Scholar.
1. If you don't find what you need in Find a Journal, then try Google Scholar.
2. If you start with Google Scholar and don't find the full article, then try Find a Journal.
C. Can you find the full articles for these citations?
For each of these items, determine whether the full article can be found (without payment) using Journal Finder or Google Scholar or both.

D. Learn about Interlibrary Loan
1. Go to the library home page.
2. On the library home page, go to Services on the upper navigation.
3. Select Interlibrary Loan.
4. Use the navigation on the left side to select "About Interlibrary Loan" and read it.
5. Use the navigation on the left side to read the rest of the information about interlibrary loan.
NOTE: Do submit Interlibrary Loan requests when needed.
NOTE: PLEASE do not submit an Interlibrary Loan request just to try out the process. We have a very small staff, and the person who handles Interlibrary Loan does not need busy work :-)
BACKGROUND. So far we've talked about finding sources for the literature review by searching the Library's research databases and searching Google Scholar. In addition to such searches, other techniques may be used to build your list of sources for a literature review.
1. One technique is to look at the bibliographies of the articles, proceedings, or books you've discovered while searching (or that have been given to you by professors or others). The bibliographies can lead you to earlier, important articles that you may have missed in your searching. These prior articles might be relevant and important to you because they originally reported or they illuminate a theory, model, or method you intend to use, improve, or refute.
2. Another technique for building a literature review is to explore forward in time by using cited reference searching.
3. Web of Science is a database that supports cited reference searching.
4. Go to Web of Science. As with all of our research databases, you can find a link to it in the "Research" dropdown menu on the Library homepage and then selecting Complete Database List. You can also find a link to Web of Science in the Library's "Information Systems, Information Assurance, and Computer Science Resources Guide."
5. Your first step is to locate the key older paper. In this activity, you will follow the steps below to find this paper in Web of Science.
Title: Data compression and harmonic analysis
Author(s): Donoho, DL; Vetterli, M; DeVore, RA; Daubechies I.
Source: IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON INFORMATION THEORY Volume: 44 Issue: 6 Pages: 2435-2476 DOI: 10.1109/18.720544 Published: OCT 1998
a. On the Web of Science search screen, click on "add row" which can be found below the search box.
b. In the top search box, enter keywords from the title of the article: data compression harmonic analysis
c. In the second box, change the type of search from "Topic" to "Author" and enter in the search box: donoho
d. Do the search to retrieve the article.
6. The next step is to find out what articles have cited the Donoho, Vetterli, DeVore & Daubechies article.
a. On the right side of the screen you will see that it says "Times Cited" followed by a number.
b. The number is a link. Click on the number to display the articles that have cited the Donoho et al. article.
c. The articles that cite the Donoho et al. article are retrieved with the newest articles at the top of the list.
d. If there were a particular aspect of the original Donoho, Vetterli, & DeVore article that made it worthwhile to you, you might use the refinement options on the left side of the results screen to pull out citing articles that cite Donoho for a similar purpose. For example, you could refine by selecting a Web of Science category or selecting a research area, or you could add a term such as "distortion" in the "search within results" searchbox.
7. Now it's your turn. Use Web of Science to find what articles have cited the article below; then answer the questions.
Ariadne: A secure on-demand routing protocol for ad hoc networks
By: Hu, YC; Perrig, A; Johnson, DB
WIRELESS NETWORKS Volume: 11 Issue: 1-2 Special Issue: SI Pages: 21-38 Published: JAN-MAR 2005
a. How many times has the Hu, Perrig & Johnson article been cited?
b. What is the title of the most recent article that cites the Hu, Perrig & Johnson article AND when was it published?
8. Another interesting feature of Web of Science is that after searching for a topic, you can sort by "Times Cited." Find the sort options at the top of the results screen. Selecting "Times Cited" will bring to the top of the results list the most highly cited papers for a particular topic. Try it out with a research topic of interest to you.
9. Google Scholar also claims to provide citation searching. You will now test it out. Go to Google Scholar and find the same Hu, Perrig & Johnson article you searched for in #7 above.
a. Below the title and partial abstract you found in Google Scholar for the Hu, Perrig & Johnson article, find and click on the link that says "Cited by 3168" (or whatever number is there on the date you search). That will display the list of items that cite the article according to Google Scholar. How many of the articles on the first screen of citing articles have publication dates prior to 2005?
Obviously, those articles could not possibly have cited the 2005 Hu, Perrig, & Johnson article. So while it may provide some articles, Google Scholar's citation searching is unreliable.
In Module 4, we will look at different types of resources and the databases you can use to search for them.
