There are many, literally hundreds of databases containing journal articles, conference papers, books, book chapters and other information sources.  They can be found in Databases A-Z and on most Subject Guides on tabs titled "Finding Articles/Using Databases" and similar names.

Retirement of SciFinder "Classic" - July 31, 2022

  • On July 31, the SciFinder “classic” interface will be retired for the University of California system. Going forward, we will only have access to SciFinder-n (or SciFindern, https://scifinder-n.cas.org).

  • Registered SciFinder users should expect to see several emails between now and the end of July reminding you of the change.
  • If you are already using SciFinder-n, there’s nothing you need to do.
  • If you are still using SciFinder “classic,” I do encourage you to begin using SciFinder-n. It’s the same username and password for both systems. If you have the old URL bookmarked, it will redirect to SciFinder-n after July 31.
    • To migrate your saved searches and alerts, login to SciFinder-n, go to Saved and Alerts, then Migrate Alerts & Saved Results. There is more information about migration exceptions within the SciFinder-n help menu (link).
  • CAS has created some good training videos on SciFinder-n (https://www.cas.org/support/training/scifinder-n). There are also some upcoming webinars, and I can offer training to classes, research groups, and individuals.

ORCID iD

Heads up researchers! Beginning FY 2020 (October 2019) Federal funders now require ORCID iD registration for all new fellowship, research training, education, and career development proposals.

(See https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-19-109.html for the original notice.) ORCID is an open, non-profit, community-based effort to provide a registry of unique digital researcher identifiers. These unique identifiers help identify articles written by the same author using various forms of his, her, or their names. This registry also provides a way to link research activities, such as publication and data set creation, to these identifiers. Beyond the federal funding requirements, you’ll be doing the research community a favor by participating – the more the ORCID buy-in, the further along we all get toward the goal of seamless, comprehensive and accurate compilation of individual authors’ works.
