CHAPTER 2

Non-Patent Primary Literature: Journals, Conference Papers, Reports, Abstracts and Preprints

Successful research efforts, in either academe or industry, require an awareness of the state of the art. This is necessary in order to identify previous research, to develop an understanding of the research problem, and to avoid unnecessary duplication of work. In addition, maintaining an on-going awareness of current literature, in your area of chemistry, is crucial to career advancement. This is true for graduate students, whose theses must be based on unique research results, as well as for senior researchers who are able to secure grant funding and pursue exclusive technology rights only for original work.
