2. Search Strategies
Searching for resources about diversity, equity, inclusion, antiracism and similar topics as they relate to Earth Sciences can be frustrating. Consider constructing search strings that make use of Boolean operators (AND, OR), wildcards (divers* = diversity, diverse), and synonyms. The example below demonstrates how to refine your search strategy.
Example: Searching Web of Science for DEI articles in Earth Science
To recreate the example searches, click on the link to Web of Science below.
Provides links to footnoted citations as well as sources that have subsequently cited an article. Includes the Arts & Humanities Citation Index (from 1975), Science Citation Index (from 1900), and Social Sciences Citation Index (from 1900).
((geo* or earth science or geology or geoscience or "earth system science") and (inclusi* or divers* or minority or underrepresented))
((("earth science" or geology or geoscience or "earth system science") and ((inclusi* or divers*) AND (minorit* or underrepresented or race) )))
Search various terms for earth or geoscience AND terms that are often used in DEI articles.
Why did you get so many results? Hint: what does an "inclusion" refer to in geology?
What is different about this search?
32 is not many results, but they are more relevant and give you a starting point for further research.
3. Topic Alerts
Setting up alerts lets you track new research using specific search terms on your topic. Here are some options:
1. Web of Science
Returning to the search above, you can click on the "Create an alert" button to receive notifications when new articles are published.
1. Look at the a portion of the author(s)' reference list below. Find the complete list here. Who did they cite?
2. Now look at who has cited this article since its publication. The citations below are listed in Google Scholar, but you can follow a similar method at the journal itself or in other databases. Notice how those citing articles have been cited themselves. Continue to follow the trail.
5. Conference programs and abstracts
Conferences can be a great source to get a sense of who is working on DEI issues, particularly if they don't publish on them in more formal publications.
The AGU Abstract Browser is a set of services for search and discovery of abstracts from past AGU-sponsored meetings (2014--), including the Fall Meeting, Joint Assembly, Ocean Sciences, Western Pacific Geosciences meeting, and the Meeting of the Americas.
