Using IUCAT FAQ

Return to FAQ main menu


 

IUCAT is hard to use. How do I just get results for a title I am looking for?

Good question! IUCAT title searches are not restricted to the title of the book, journal, etc. It also finds the words you are looking for in the title of a series, alternate titles, and titles of articles in compendia of articles. If you know the exact title that you are looking for, it may be a good idea to use the options listed on the left side of the website.

Does IUCAT include individual articles?

No, it does not. Good starting points for finding chemistry articles are Web of Science, and SciFinder. You may find more information here.

 


 

Can I export a reference directly from IUCAT to EndNote

Yes, you can! After clicking on a search result in IUCAT, several citing options will appear directly under the title.  Click on Export to Endnote and the citation will start to download.  Once it has downloaded completely, open the citation to select Endnote as the specific program for your computer to use.
