Coming this summer: A database of COH publications

May 11, 2012

Library Services is working with ITS Research and stakeholders throughout City of Hope to create a comprehensive database of City of Hope journal articles and other publication types.  This database, to be released this summer, will promote City of Hope research, both internally and externally, by making the products of the research readily accessible as well as eventually provide permanent access to publications and support a variety of uses throughout the organization.

Find Publications & Run Reports

  • Search the database to find publications by specific criteria, such as:
    • publications by researchers, students and/or postdocs;
    • publications associated with specific departments, grants, core facilities, and/or clinical trials; and/or
    • publications by calendar year.
  • Extract the citation information in a format that you can use, such as RIS format (for EndNote, Reference Manager, etc.), PDF, and RTF.
  • Support measuring and reporting on published research output, required for grants (e.g. NCI Cancer Center Support Grant) and accreditation.

Verifying the Data

  • We will load publication information from PubMed, Web of Science, Scopus, CINAHL, and other databases .
  • We will associate your name with your publications, but will need your help:
    • to make sure those publications associated with you are correct and that
    • they acknowledge the right grants and contracts as well as our core facilities.

Want to know more? Have questions? Please contact the library (library@coh.org or x68497) or stop by the Graff Library front desk to discuss the system with us.


Library Services poster at the 2012 Research Staff Organization Advance

May 11, 2012

I created a poster for the 2012 Research Staff Organization Advance held at the UCLA Conference Center in Lake Arrowhead, CA from April 29th through May 1st. The title “Using ResearcherID, My NCBI My Bibliography, and Scopus to market and promote your research and evaluate its impact” generated interest from some researchers  and two one-on-one consultations were scheduled in order to help our authors establish and update their author profiles.

You can see the poster here. Or, come into the Graff Library building and see the poster near the Library Conference Room.

Below you will find the handouts too!

Have questions or want to chat about creating your own author profile? Contact me, Andrea Lynch, (alynch@coh.org or x60520) or stop by the front desk in the Graff Library building and ask for me.
