Searching for publications or data? Here are a few reminders on how to optimize your search.
A query in Google Scholar returns results whose full text is not necessarily available. In order to check if the full text is available with the subscriptions at Audencia, simply click on Google Scholar settings and enter the name of the school.
Note: the link is automatically displayed from the local network of Audencia.
From then on, a link “Full text via Audencia" will appear in the results list, just right of the reference; by clicking on it, you will be redirected to the document thanks to the school’s subscriptions.
Attention : the list of sources indexed by Google Scholar is not known.
We know by experience that we can find sites of major publishers or open archives but we also know that Google indexes sources they call "academic". This may be research blogs or research units websites.
Google Scholar can be a good way to spot grey literature for example.
This very large number of indexed sources naturally can have an impact on the number of citations found for each document.
Google Scholar Button: this extension adds a browser button for easy access to Google Scholar from any webpage (available for Chrome or Firefox).
Dimensions is a linked research free data platform with over 90 millions research publications as well as connections associated with grants, clinical trials and patents information
You can search using a key word and add filters (date, area of research, journal or researcher)
The analytical view moves out across your search to analyze your search results and shows you trends.
For each publications you can see the citation information with the Dimensions badge as well as the attention information with the Altmetric attention score showing you how the publication has been talked about across the internet
Finally, if you still can’t find the full text, do not hesitate: ask the library!
