Ocean Drilling Citation Database
The Ocean Drilling Citation database contains more than 27,000 citations related to Deep Sea Drilling Project (DSDP), Ocean Drilling Program (ODP), and Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) research spanning from 1969 to the present. Approximately 35% of the citations are from publications produced by the drilling programs (e.g., ODP Proceedings series) and 65% are from serial publications, abstracts, conference proceedings, maps, etc. The database is hosted by the American Geological Institute (AGI) and is updated on a weekly basis from entries made to the GeoRef database.
IODP Member Services
Annual analyses of the database are available for download. In addition, member countries/consortiums can request statistics on what their authors are publishing. Statistics are gathered based on the affiliation of the first and/or contributing authors. Statistics can be provided on where and how often authors are publishing. Searches are based on the most recent AGI CD compilation. To make a request, please contact Citations@iodp.tamu.edu.
Conduct a Database Search
You may choose to search individual fields, multiple fields, or all fields at once. Field categories are: title, author, affiliation, volume title, volume author, source, year of publication, research program, and key words.
After you enter the search words, click the "Submit Query" button. The results of your search will be displayed in the table format (one of three available formats). To view the records in the brief record or full record format, select the desired format by clicking on the drop-down list at the top of the search results page. A maximum of twenty records will display on each screen. To view additional records, click the "Next 20 Records" button.
Conduct Additional Searches
If you wish to maintain part of the search information from your previous search, use the browser "Back" button to return to the main search screen. The "New Search" button also returns you to the main search screen, but clears the query fields of all information.
Copy and Download Citations
Citations may be copied directly from the screen and pasted into word processing or spreadsheet software programs.
The database format includes a download feature that imports the information from the database directly into EndNote. The import comes through into predefined EndNote fields. The data can also be downloaded into other bibliographic software programs, however, the contents may need to be edited by the researcher.
To prepare citations for downloading:
Help information is available for conducting a citation search and for using the InfoCart to download citations into bibliographic software.
To access the help information on conducting a citation search, click on any of the field names on the left side of the main search screen. A white "Help" button will appear when you bring your cursor over a field name. Click this button to be linked to the appropriate section of the Help file.
To access information on using the "InfoCart" to download citations into bibliographic software packages, click on the "InfoCart Help" button at the bottom of the main search screen.
Note: If you click on a "Help" button and nothing appears to happen, the Help window is probably hidden behind the main search screen window. All help information is located in one file that opens in a separate window from the main search screen window. If you read help information and do not close the window before you go back to the main search window, you should set up your viewing windows in a tiled format so that you will be able to locate the help file window next time you click on a "Help" button. Otherwise, the window will remain hidden behind the main search screen window.
