The Value in Abstracts: Limited Time to Scan a Discipline Exponential growth of articles to read per year “Faculty report nearly twice as many readings as they did thirty years ago” A1 Tenopir,Carol A1 King,Donald W. T1 Electronic Journals and Changes in Scholarly Article Seeking and Reading Patterns JF D-Lib Magazine Often the scientist’s goal “is not to find an article to read, but rather to find, assess, and exploit a range of information by scanning portions of many articles”. T1 Strategic Reading, Ontologies, and the Future of Scientific Publishing -- Renear and Palmer 325 (5942): 828 -- Science VO 2009 IS 12/8/2009NO id: 1 ED http://www.sciencemag.org/cgi/content/abstract/325/5942/828 Traditional Abstract & Indexing Components ASFA & OCEANIC ABSTRACTS ASFA: Aquatic Sciences and Fisheries Abstracts Database Overwhelmingly cited by a majority of aquatic science librarians as their primary database, the ASFA series is the premier reference in the field of aquatic resources. Input to ASFA is provided by a growing international network of information centers monitoring over 7,000 serial publications, books, reports, conference proceedings, translations and limited distribution literature. ASFA is a component of the Aquatic Sciences and Fisheries Information System (ASFIS), formed by four United Nations agency sponsors of ASFA and a network of international and national partners. Sources covered include over 3,000 periodicals, conference proceedings, technical reports, trade journal/newsletter items, patents, books, and press releases.

Images are included in Scientific and Technical articles only because they illustrate something fundamental about the research field work, experiment findings or conclusions 2. Distilled essence of the research – the closest thing to the raw datasets 3. Articles with the right kinds of objects quickly establish the relevance of the related data and findings 4. These objects are most often invisible using traditional articlelevel and full-text searching Deep Indexing: Indexing Process 1. Identification of tables and figures (images, charts, maps, etc.) found within a scholarly article 2. Extraction of critical data and information within and surrounding each table or figure (including full caption) to provide the indexing 3. Assignment of a category Search Results Options to narrow results by: •Date •Scholarly Journals •Full text •Source Type •And more ... •Indexed Images 5995 hits … From a regular keyword search Deep Indexing Results 173 hits … more targeted hits when we filter by indexed figures & tables results Deep Indexing Result – showing indexing Options to email, cite, save in My Research, Save to PPT or Tag Object descriptors, Authors, and Publication are hyperlinked for lateral searching Special WorkFlow Features on The New ProQuest Platform PROQUEST NEW PLATFORM ProQuest Platform CROSS SEARCH ON PROQUEST PLATFORM Science & Technology: Cross Search With PQDT Scientific Dissertations Combined Aquatic Science Collection + Dissertations Results Cross Search SciTech Collections databases with the PQDT and other ProQuest platform databases on the All New ProQuest Platform Dissertations Results Dissertations Pdf Result ProQuest New Platform Features SEARCH TOOLS Keyword Autocomplete Smart Search Results list - Preview document Narrow by classification or location Results List Icons Show Source Type Use this menu to move to Advanced Search Form Advanced Search Menu Options Command line search for the pros Search for a particular citation Thesaurus Figures & Tables Search Menu Browse author names Browse the publications list ProQuest New Platform Features ORGANISE YOUR RESEARCH My Research – Store, Organise and Share Search Results My Research – Create Folders to Store Research My Research – Store Deep Indexed Illustrata Figures & Tables My Research Lists (Create and Share Lists) My Research Annotate Saved Results Create RSS Feeds My Research Cite & Manage Citation Formats My Research Facebook etc My Research – Export Citations to RefWorks or other Citation Manager Aquatic Science Collection Strengths Full Text Content Deep Indexing Specialised topic focus Additional content other than journal and conference Conference papers, books, standards, reports Intl. coverage Editorial control and QA Controlled vocabulary – (ASFA thesaurus, Life Sciences thesaurus, Latin Names) Cited References (when available) Currency Value Cross Searching with other PQ Content (especially Dissertations) You want to write a paper on the protection of the endangered species Type protection AND “endangered species” into the Basic Search box.
