Library Courses in March

Introduction to Qiqqa – Thurs 8 March, 10.00 am to 12 noon

Qiqqa is free reference management software which will automatically format the citations in a Word document and produce a list of references at the end of that document. It differs from RefWorks, which is the University’s standard reference management software, because the emphasis is on working with full-text pdf files rather than references.

Course Aims:

  • Provide an overview of reference management software
  • Demonstrate the key features of Qiqqa
  • Raise awareness of the databases provided by the Library

Designed for:

  • Research staff and PhD students wanting to explore alternative packages to RefWorks

Research Excellence Framework (REF) and SCOPUS – Thurs 15 March, 1.15 pm to 2.00 pm

SCOPUS  is the world’s largest bibliographic and citation database covering over 19,500 journals from a wide range of subjects. It has been chosen as the source of the citation data which will be used by some of the REF assessment panels. Currently the Library at Queen’s does not subscribe to SCOPUS so this session, which will be delivered by Dr Peter Darroch from Elsevier, will provide an overview of the database and the citation data submission process for the REF. Information will also be provided about trial access to SCOPUS.

  • SCOPUS coverage and functionality
