  • SURF History and Science Seminars

    SURF Logo

    SURF has organised a lunchtime ‘bridging the gaps’ seminar programme to run in May. The theme is ‘History and Science’, which speakers from across the campus will approach from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. The meetings will take place in the SURF room on Thursdays between 12.30 and 14.00, when lunch will be available.

    The first seminar takes place next week:

    13 May       Frances Rapport (Medicine)

    ‘When History meets Social Science: novel literary devices for re-presenting Holocaust testimonials’  

    Because space in the SURF Room is limited, and because it is necessary to order lunches in advance, a booking system is being used for these seminars and the number of participants is restricted to forty five. Please do pass on the details of the programme to research students and any other colleagues who might be interested in these seminars.

    Please ensure that you book by this Thursday, 6 May.  Some places are still available.

  • Biosis Previews – trial material available

    The latest records from Biosis Previews can currently be used online via a trial platform.

     As you may know, we now have access to 1969-2008 courtesy of Jisc but until mid-May the whole database can be used by going to http://wok.mimas.ac.uk. Click the green button to access Web of Knowledge then click a link at the top right of the screen saying “Experience the new version with Biosis Citation Index, Web of Science” then click “Access it now”.

    This is a trial version so may not always be working perfectly but it does give access to material we do not usually have.

    BIOSIS Previews contains the electronic version of Biological Abstracts and its associated Reports, Reviews and Meetings abstracts. It contains bibliographic information on subjects across the whole range of biological sciences.
