Utheria

Source

The Source is the journal article or book chapter (etc etc) from which the data were extracted. This is not necessarily the same as where the data were first published: in fact, most data in YouTHERIA are secondary data, such as compendia.

YouTHERIA stores the Source in a specified format. The formatted reference looks like this:


PT JN\rAU Fimbel, C. \rPY 1994 \rTI Ecological correlates of species success in modified habitats may be disturbance-specific and site-specific - the primates of Tiwai Island \rSO Conservation Biology \rVL 8 \rIS 1 \rPG 106-113 \r

This would be cited in the journal Conservation Biology as:

Fimbel, C. 1994. Ecological correlates of species success in modified habitats may be disturbance-specific and site-specific - the primates of Tiwai Island. Conservation Biology 8:106-113.

Getting the format right is important because YouTHERIA will query the database in order to determine whether data from the Source has already been entered into the database. If the Source is not recognised, you will be prompted to confirm that it should be added as a new record in the database. Fortunately, formatting references is straightforward
using Endnote:
1. Open an Endnote library containing the Source information. For journals, the easiest way to do this is via Web of Knowledge. For Books, Book Sections, Theses and Personal Communications the citation will have to be entered into Endnote manually. Note that YouTHERIA is case-sensitive, so please enter Source titles in sentence case ("The quick brown fox") rather than headline case ("The Quick Brown Fox"). Names and proper nouns should be capitalised at all times. Take great care to avoid typos.
2. Place a
copy of the YouTHERIA Endnote style into the Endnote Styles folder on your computer and select this as the current formatting Style.
3. Right-click the reference in Endnote, select 'Copy Formatted' and paste into the text box in YouTHERIA.


Note that you don't need a licensed copy of Endnote to use the software in this way. Rather, Web of Knowledge users can access the My Endnote Web service instead.
