Introduction

Human blastocyst (day 5)[1]

This page introduces some background information and reference resources for your online project. If you have read research or review papers that you intend to use in the project, you must include a citation in the project reference list. For images and files will need to read the listed online tutorials to identify what you may reuse and how to apply for copyright clearance. In addition to your course textbook, there are a number of other Bookshelf texts which may also contain useful (background reading) information for your project.

The first section of this page introduces what you should not do when adding content from references to your personal and project pages.

The second section identifies some useful reference resources and databases. More detailed information can be found on the Help pages listed under "Editing Links".

Here are the Nevers:

  • Never assume that material you find on the internet can be freely reused.
  • Never reuse any journal content you do not clearly know the copyright status and/or have have permission to reuse.
  • Never upload images without reference and copyright information and that you do not intend to use in your project.
  • Never name images that do not clearly describe what is shown in the image.


To find out how project reference copyright works read the Copyright Tutorial.

To find out how to insert these references into your project page read References.

To find out how to upload images read the Image Tutorial.

Never

Never assume

...that material you find on the internet can be freely reused.

  • Just because it is available to see and read on the internet is not permission to make use of that content for your own purposes.
  • Not only is it academic plagiarism, it will in most cases also be be illegal.
  • Remember that your project can also be seen and read on the internet.
  • You will need to contact publishers, authors, or a copyright commercial clearinghouse for some permissions (this will be explained in class tutorial).


Only use reference content that you have identifiable permission to reuse.

Never reuse

...any journal content you do not clearly know the copyright status and/or have have permission to reuse.

  • A reference may identify that you can view or use for your own "personal educational use", this does not allow you to republish the material yourself.
  • Many commercial publishers now make their journals able to be viewed online {open access), this is often not copyright permission.
  • Read the copyright conditions carefully and do not simply paste the associated copyright statement you find.


I have seen students paste copyright statements that clearly state that they cannot reuse the material.

Never upload

...images without reference and copyright information and that you do not intend to use in your project.

  • Begin by having the full reference citation, PMID number and copyright information available.
  • Do not upload and think you will add the information later.
  • Remember that all the files you upload will be associated with your student number.
  • Students cannot delete uploaded files, contact the course coordinator by email with the full address and request deletion.
  • If you upload several versions of an image those you do not use in the final project, request that they be deleted.
  • Remember that the text or image will require a linked citation in your reference list on the project page.


Do not upload images without all the required information in the file summary box.

Never name

...images that do not clearly describe what is shown in the image.

  • Journal images are not named for their content, but for the paper or material with which they are associated.
  • Naming an image file (figure 1, fig1, 1, image 1, my image 1, #1 figA, student image1, embryo, mouse, etc) are not accurate descriptions of what that image shows.
  • Naming an image by a lengthy figure legend (Images_of_congenital_hereditary_cataracts_due_to_mutations_of_crystallin_genes.jpg) is also just as bad.
  • Rename the file briefly based upon what it is showing, but always include the original image name in the file summary box.
  • Remember that all the files you upload will be associated with your student number.
  • Students cannot delete uploaded files, contact the course coordinator by email with the full address and request deletion.


If the file name has already been used, do not replace the existing file, change your naming or add a number to the name.

Journals

Journals that allow reuse of content

The Journal of BMC Developmental Biology, Public Library of Science and Cell Biology allow reuse of content provided the article is properly cited. Additional Journals can be found listed on the Directory of Open Access Journals.

  • BMC Developmental Biology
    • BMC Developmental Biology
    • Journal Archive 2001 to 2009
    • BMC Cell Biology is an open access journal publishing original peer-reviewed research articles in all aspects of cell biology including cellular compartments, traffic, signalling, motility, adhesion and division.
      • Note: Articles with the blue open access logo are immediately and permanently available online. Unrestricted use, distribution and reproduction in any medium is permitted, provided the article is properly cited. BMC Charter
  • Public Library of Science
  • There are several cell biology relevant journals published by PLoS.
    • PLoS ONE
    • PLoS Biology
    • PLoS Medicine
      • Note: "Everything PLoS publish is freely available online for you to read, download, copy, distribute, and use (with attribution) any way you wish."

Journals that do not allow reuse of content

The following journals will also be useful for your project research, but do not allow reuse of content without permission.

You can in many cases apply for permission online through the Journal links to the Copyright Clearance Center. When applying you must first register with the Copyright Clearance Center, select the "use on website" option and be clear about the number of images you wish to reuse. You can only reuse the content after receiving approval, which will be emailed to the email address you supplied for registration, please use your UNSW student email for this process. The approval information should then be copy and pasted into the image information window along with: the original legend, links to the article and any copyright information required by the journal. In some cases you may also directly contact the article author and request permission for reuse.

Other Journals

Some of these journals allow only abstract viewing from computers outside the University. Within the University, if the library subscribes, you should be able to access the full papers. Note that you can also see abstracts from a PubMed search.

Medline Database

MEDLINE is a literature database of life sciences and biomedical information containing review and research articles. See also References to generate references within your project, a reference list on your page and formatting the pubmed reference link.

  • Pubmed" MEDLINE is the National Library of Medicine (NLM) USA premier bibliographic database covering the fields of medicine, nursing, dentistry, veterinary medicine, the health care system, and the preclinical sciences." (NCBI)
    • MH - I would prefer reference links to be added pointing to this database.
  • UNSW also has the MEDLINE database available through the Library using Sirius.
    • While it is essentially the same reference database, some papers will have different access rights based upon the university's subscriptions.

Searching with nearly any term will result in a large number of results that can be made more specific by either:

  1. Using "Preview/Index" option to carry out an additional search and then combining with your first result. (#1 AND #2) or
  2. Using "Limits" option to set limits on your search results. (review, years, english, etc)

OMIM Database

  • OMIM
    • "OMIM is a comprehensive, authoritative, and timely compendium of human genes and genetic phenotypes. The full-text, referenced overviews in OMIM contain information on all known mendelian disorders and over 12,000 genes. OMIM focuses on the relationship between phenotype and genotype."
    • (MH - this is an excellent reference source for your individual projects)

Medical Dictionary

Project Referencing

References this page will give specific information on how to insert references on your Wiki page.

Images

You cannot copy images from the cell biology textbooks Molecular Biology of the Cell, Molecular Cell Biology or The Cell- A Molecular Approach to your project.

  • You can include the content as an external link.
  • Use an abbreviation of the journal title (MBoC, MBC, Cell) separated by a hyphen "-" and the figure title.

Text

Any direct use of text within your project should be avoided. If absolutely necessary, all text must be included in quotations with a reference link to the original source. This reference link must appear in your reference list at the bottom of your project page.
