Trial access to Dentistry and Oral Sciences Source (DOSS) database

Trial access to Dentistry and Oral Sciences Source (DOSS) database

Creighton University students and faculty have trial access to the Dentistry and Oral Sciences Source (DOSS) database on the EBSCOhost platform through the end of 2017.

DOSS, an index to dentistry and oral sciences literature, contains indexing and abstracts of more than 300 academic journals in all areas of dentistry (160 with current full-text articles with no embargo, and 40 with embargoes from 6 to 18 months) and 31 full-text books. The Health Sciences Library currently subscribes to only 8 of the active full-text journals in the collection.

Access to DOSS is here.

More detailed information about the contents is here.

Please explore this database and consider whether it would be a useful support to the teaching and research of the Creighton University School of Dentistry. Send comments and inquiries to Bryan Stack, Collection Services Librarian, bryanstack@creighton.edu or 402-280-5137.

Scopus and Web of Science Database Trial March 17-April 30

The Creighton University Libraries are conducting a trial through April 30 to compare the Scopus and Web of Science databases.

Both are bibliographic databases offering primary indexing, citation indexing and tracking, measures of the academic impact of journals, and the ability to profile the work of individual authors.

Publisher representatives will present overviews of their respective databases in the Health Sciences Library Thune Seminar Room:

  • Scopus: Monday, March 20, at 10 a.m., noon (lunch provided), and 2 p.m.
  • Web of Science: Monday, March 27, at 10 a.m., noon (lunch provided), and 2 p.m.

More detail about the trial, with links to relevant articles comparing and evaluating the databases, and an evaluation survey, will be available here.

Faculty evaluation of both products is vital to this decision. Please attend the overview sessions, explore both databases, and submit a survey.
