Faculty Publications Help and Information
The Faculty Publications database is maintained by the Rita and Frits Markus Library and is a collection of citations authored by faculty of the Rockefeller University while at the university.
The database is comprised of citations obtained from Thomson Reuters Web of Knowledge. Which includes; Web of Science® (1899-present). Soon to include MEDLINE® (1950-present), BIOSIS Citation Index® (1969-present) and BIOSIS Previews® (1926-present).
Document Types and Coverage:
The database contains citations of journal articles, reviews, proceedings papers, notes, editorial material, letters, and discussions by RU authors from 1901.
You may search by author, title, journal, abstract, or research update (see explanation below). You may also limit by year(s) published. You can improve your results by adding "operators" to your search terms. Faculty Publications is able to perform AND, OR and NOT searches, as well as searches for exact phrases by using quotes.
You may list your search results by 5, 10, 25, 50 or 100 citations per page and toggle the highlighting of terms searched. "Show all authors" has been added to the search page. The initial search defaults to the viewing of the first 25 authors. To view all the authors, click "Show all authors" and click search.
Access to the full text of articles is dependent upon the University having a paid subscription, or the article being available in an open access journal. Best practice to assure reaching full text of articles when you are located off campus includes first establishing a VPN connection to the University network.
Full Text links are generated in the following order and from the following sources:
- If the Publisher allows the author free access to the article and supplies this link to the author, which then is given to the Library to add to the database.
- The Publisher gives permission for the pdf of the article to be placed in the Library's Digital Repository; Digital Commons.
- If the Digital Object Identifier "DOI" is available.
- If none of the above is available, then the Library's SFX OpenURL link resolver database is used to locate the full text.
The PubMed ID (PMID) identifies a citation record (rather than full-text) in the PubMed database. It is not evidence of compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy because it does not identify a full-text submission of any kind.
A PMCID is a unique PubMed Central reference number which is assigned to each full-text record made available in PubMed Central.
The PMCID reference number is not the same as the PubMed Identifier number (PMID). The PMID is unique to PubMed. All publications submitted to PubMed Central are added to the PubMed citation database and will be assigned a PMCID. NIH-funded authors should use the PMCID, not the PMID, in order to comply with the NIH Public Access Policy.
Only publications after 2007 will have a PMID/PMCID link to search PubMed to locate these numbers if available.
A Faculty Publications Mobile Site has been added.
Frequency of Updates:
The Faculty Publications database is updated every Thursday.
