Source publication list for WEB OF SCIENCE


As a researcher we always concern about the quality of academic journals and their trustworthiness for publishing our research papers as well as quality of studying resources. It would be great if there is an updated list for some of the best journals in each field of study. Regarding this matter the main publications normally put out such an annual list to help researchers and other audiences. One of these academic documents is published by Thomson Reuters named “source publication list for WEB OF SCIENCE, science citation index expanded, March 2012” which has listed all ISI journals with their ISSN, E-ISSN, country and publisher. Since this document is not copy righted I re-publish it here and you can download it.

Common mistakes in writing academic papers


Some Common Mistakes in writing academic papers based on IEEE  are as bellow:

  • The word “data” is plural, not singular.
  • The subscript for the permeability of vacuum μ0 and other common scientific constants, is zero with subscript formatting, not a lowercase letter “o”.
  • In American English, commas, semi-/colons, periods, question and exclamation marks are located within quotation marks only when a complete thought or name is cited, such as a title or full quotation. When quotation marks are used, instead of a bold or italic typeface, to highlight a word or phrase, punctuation should appear outside of the quotation marks. A parenthetical phrase or statement at the end of a sentence is punctuated outside of the closing parenthesis (like this). (A parenthetical sentence is punctuated within the parentheses.)
  • A graph within a graph is an “inset”, not an “insert”. The word alternatively is preferred to the word “alternately” (unless you really mean something that alternates).
  • Do not use the word “essentially” to mean “approximately” or “effectively”.
  • In your paper title, if the words “that uses” can accurately replace the word “using”, capitalize the “u”; if not, keep using lower-cased.
  • Be aware of the different meanings of the homophones “affect” and “effect”, “complement” and “compliment”, “discreet” and “discrete”, “principal” and “principle”.
  • Do not confuse “imply” and “infer”.
  • The prefix “non” is not a word; it should be joined to the word it modifies, usually without a hyphen.
  • There is no period after the “et” in the Latin abbreviation “et al.”.
  • The abbreviation “i.e.” means “that is”, and the abbreviation “e.g.” means “for example”.

How to import references from Google Scholar to EndNote?


As a researcher you may use EndNote software for the citation. This great software gives you the opportunity to manage all citation needs. Sometimes this question comes to mind that how can I use Google scholar and EndNote as a integrated package. In other word, ” how can I import references from Google Scholar into Endnote?”. For doing so, you will need to configure Google Scholar to send references to EndNote. Then you will be able to send references to EndNote by clicking on the “Import into EndNote” link. Follow these steps to configure Google Scholar to send references to EndNote:
  1. Go to the Google Scholar home page at http://scholar.google.com
  2. Click on the “Scholar Preferences” link.
  3. Under “Bibliography Manager” select the option “Show links to import citations into” and choose “EndNote” in the drop down box.
  4. Click on the “Save Preferences” button.
Follow these steps to import search results into EndNote:
  1. After performing a search on Google Scholar click on the “Import into EndNote” link for the reference you want to import.
  2. If you are presented with a window asking if you want to “Open” or “Save” the file, choose to open the file.
  3. A “Select a Reference Library” window will appear, use this window to select the EndNotelibrary you want the reference imported into.
Note: If you are using the Windows version of EndNote X you will first need to update to X.0.2.
