SciFinder Instructional Materials

You must first create an account using your @umd.edu email address to use the web version of SciFinder Scholar.

  • Choose “Explore References” to search for literature and select the “concept” option for retrieving the references.
  • Since SciFinder executes searches simultaneously in the Chemical Abstracts database (CAPLUS) and MEDLINE, there will be some duplicate references in the retrieved set (there is some overlap in the journal coverage by the two databases). Before proceeding further with the search, remove these duplicates (select "Remove duplicates" from the Tools menu).
