Finding credible scientific papers is easy!

Just go into Google Scholar scholar.google.com

You can enter keywords to search for any scientific subject.

If you were hoping to find disinformation from pseudo journals such as Energy and Environment, conservative think tanks, etc., you will be disappointed.

If you want to find peer-reviewed scientific papers from credible journals, I think Google Scholar has about 50 thousand (literally) different journals to access.

By combining enough of the right keywords, you can quickly find papers directly relevant to the questions you may have.

One valuable resource within Google Scholar is that it list how many times the paper in question has been cited.

This tells you the number of peer-reviewed scientific papers that cited the paper in question.

This alone tells you a lot. Was this paper taken seriously by the scientific community? The numbers don't lie.

The older a paper is, the more suspicious it might be that hardly anyone cited it.

Reproducibility is one of the requirements of the Scientific Method.

Were their results reproducible? So, why isn't anybody citing them for that fact?

In Google Scholar, you can click on the number of times cited and get a list of papers that cited the paper in question.

This can quickly guide you to the most recent papers on the subject of interest.

These papers can also be used to verify if the results of the original paper were reproducible or not.

Then you can form your own opinion about what is true in science.

How do you search for science papers when you don't know what science is?

By the way, science is not a paper.

Science is not someone's opinion in a document.


On a different topic, I can tell you that it is an exhilarating feeling both knowing what science is and having a solid education in it. Being good at math as well takes that feeling to new levels.

Let me know when you have science questions.

How do you search for science papers when you don't know what science is?



------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm glad you asked me how I search for science papers.

I've got some tips that could help the rookie make rapid headway.

When you first enter keywords, shoot for the moon. Use as many keywords as it takes to find a paper that will address your specific question.

There is a fair chance you will get a short list of papers that very specifically address your questions. Especially after you get a knack for choosing keywords.

You may have to shorten the list if the first attempt doesn't pan out.

The opposite approach is to start super basic and then add more keywords until you find the one that specifically answers your question.


Here's a way that might even be easier for the beginner. It works if there is already a paper you know about and want to learn more about the topic it addresses.

First, check to see who has cited it most recently. You can find more up to date papers on the same topic. You can read the titles to see if they seem like they might have what you're looking for.

Second, internet search engines like Google Scholar can actually give you a list of related papers on the topic, even though they may not have cited the paper you began the search with.

A long list of papers can be intimidating.

You don't have to read them all.

You don't even have to read every abstract.

Just cruise through the titles until something jumps out that looks like it's about your subject of interest.

How do you discern science that answers your question from the abundance of Marxist gibber-babble when you don't even know what science is? How do you avoid religious dogmababble when you think science is a religion based on subjective consensus?

There is almost zero chance I will get any papers with science. I know this because I know what science is.

My fifteen minutes of fame in science was 1995.

By then it was beyond doubt.

The only "debate" that remained within the scientific community was about how bad it could get, and how quickly it could get bad.

Beyond the Ivory Tower an astroturf debate was being synthesized.

According to echo chamber, scientists were deeply divided.

The brave new revolutionaries were risking their careers and funding to expose the truth about the great global warming hoax.

There two camps. The mavericks and the blind followers.

Within the Ivory Tower, scientists were deeply divided.

There were two camps. The five-alarm fire alarmists and the cautious moderates who wanted to be sure there was 100% absolute certainty before they started a panic.

The moderates won. The predicted timelines for changing conditions only included the worst case scenarios as unexpected outliers.

The astroturf debate relied heavily on the uncertainty of the predictions, and the fact that nothing was expected to really start happening for decades. Sounds like a hoax all right.

But then it started happening sooner than predicted

Again, I don't expect you to understand the difference so you get a pass.

When someone such as you is under tremendous pressure to believe an absurd religious dogma, if the pressure reaches a high enough threshold, the mind starts making excuses to just believe and get out from under the pressure.

I totally get it.

If all you have to do is to delude yourself into thinking that you are a science genius and a Climate justice superhero, well, that's not so bad and it's easy enough to do.

I totally get it.

At the same time you have to realize that no rational adult has any reason whatsoever to believe your physics violations just to prop up your delusion.

Cheers.

The first time I viewed this site was years ago.

It was easy to find with an Internet search. The site name was promising.

Some of the same posters here now were here then, having a very similar kind of discussion as they are having now. Looked like a rabbit hole.

A year ago I even signed up. Getting into a climate debate discussion seemed worth another try. But then I read the kind of stuff being posted...

It just seemed tragic. A promising site, so easy to find for those with the shared interest. But what do they find.

When I posted the first time, I read about a hundred thread titles.

Maybe three of them were related to climate debate in a meaningful way.

Things are different today.

The newcomer will see some thread titles that might have something to do with the kind of thing they were looking for.

I'm not too thin skinned about being accused of scientific ignorance.

I don't know if it will be days or weeks, but I expect some higher quality questions will be coming in soon enough.

You worry about it tremendously because the "science genius" schtick is your cover. You are pretending to be an authority so you can set up shop on a site and convert/indoctrinate the unwary to your Marxist cult and maybe volunteer for a marine deployment with Greenpeace.

Preachers like you absolutely HATE pesky people like me who actually understand the science you are pretending to wield and who expose your WACKY dogma for the gibber-babble that it is.

RE: "Peer-reviewed" Bunk how to spot it13-03-2022 12:39

(804)
When I dabbled in the Internet climate change debate about 10 years ago, the disinformation campaign was touting a list of "500 peer-reviewed papers" that all scientifically refuted the global warming hoax.

A disproportionately large minority of them all came from a single journal.

Energy and Environment.

One of those articles from Energy and Environment was especially impressive.

Like all the others, the abstract suggested that they had scientific evidence to dispute what virtually all the world's scientists understood to be true.

I'm guessing that the people who compiled the list, and maybe even the "peers" who "reviewed" it, didn't actually read past the abstract.

The scientific genius who wrote the paper concluded that the sun therefore must be made mainly of iron.

When they expanded their list to "1000 peer-reviewed papers" debunking global warming, they dropped that particular article. Somebody DID read past the abstract and it had become a cause for ridicule. Still, there expanded list included a whole lot more articles from Energy and Environment.

Energy and Environment looks at first glance like the real thing.

How do you spot the "peer-reviewed" bunk from the credible science?


Well, if you started with an article from that list and entered it into a scientific citation search engine, such as Google Scholar, you could get some clues very quickly.

How many times was that article cited in genuine peer-reviewed scientific journals?

If the article claims to have made a paradigm-shifting discovery, this would be something other scientists would want to cite. At least if it were reproducible.

One thing all the articles in Energy and Environment have is that nobody cites them except each other.

And if the only place they cited it was in Energy and Environment, it won't even show up on any legitimate scientific citation index.

Contrarian claims have a high bar to pass, as they contradict what was previously accepted as proven to be reproducible.

They need to be extra reproducible if they are to supercede in the Scientific Method.

If no credible scientist is citing it, it's either only been out for a few months, or it's probably "peer-reviewed" bunk.

Check the date. The older an allegedly paradigm-shifting discovery is, the more likely it is to have hundreds of citations. Unless it just wasn't reproducible.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Citing articles can be a nuisance.

One of the hurdles they make you jump is that you have to justify every sentence with a citation.

At least every sentence that contains an assertion that isn't already so widely accepted that it is already in the text books.

It's not that it goes without saying for those assertions.

Just that you don't have to keep using citations to make those same assertions anymore. Everyone knows where it came from by then.

But it's a nuisance.

Eugene Odum, author of Fundamentals of Ecology and the man who coined important "buzzwords" like "ecosystem" had some advice.

Just write a book.

It doesn't have to go through peer-review.

You don't have to cite literature for every point you make.

You don't have to cite literature for ANY point you make.

But even writing a book isn't all that easy.

Especially if you are a perfectionist.

On the other hand, perfectionist instincts can be overcome when putting little science lessons on an Internet website.

However, this thread isn't about putting our own citations into a paper.

It's about papers that have already been cited and how to find them.

Welcome newcomers!

Yes, occasionally you will encounter a Marxist who is trying to set up shop on this website as sort of a mini, online religious chapter for one of the many prevalent Marxist religions.

The intention is to create an expanding island of rebellion against any sort of critical reasoning whereby science itself is discarded and then demonized, and the label of "science" then applied to the religion in question.

Climate Change is but one of the many religious faiths discussed here on this site. As such, there can be no science discussion thereof. There can be no science of any religion.

Sealover,

I think a very worthwhile question to answer is: What is an effective strategy to determining the truth about anything?

Of course we have our own experience, empirical direct observation.

As for 2nd hand information the reservations would be two:
1- Is the source competent
2- Could the source be biased or lying

Competence is the easier of the two to establish. An optometrist or chiropractor giving testimony about virology for example doesn't check all the boxes.

As for bias/lying here is where the conspiracist goes wild.

However lying requires a motive. No one lies for no reason at all as there is a risk to doing it.

So two situations where information is highly reliable:
1- When the information comes from someone who would prefer it were otherwise. In court this is called a Declaration against interest
A situation where the bias and motive to lie is actually counter to the information given.
2- When the information's source doesn't care at all and had no reason to care.

For many conspiracy theories there is a timeline that makes participation before a certain date impossible.

This comes up here hilariously enough in claiming that a global warming conspiracy caused textbooks on thermodynamics written 100 years ago to be wrong, when global warming wasn't on anyone's mind 100 years ago.

Also the Russian Venera Venus probes all took place before AGW was an issue.

I think very often when a totally BS theory is supported by the conspiracists formula of:
"well that info contradicts my theory because there is a fast conspiracy out there..."
Information is often available that is highly reliable simply because it came from a source that could not have cared to lie about it.

finding a specific paper in Google Scholar.

Let's say you have the following information and want to find a paper.

1995. Polyphenol control of nitrogen release from pine litter. Nature. 377:227-229.

In this case, the easiest way to go is search: "Nature 377:227-229"

This IMMEDIATELY finds the exact paper with a link to a pdf of the entire thing.

Entering "Polyphenol control of nitrogen release from pine litter", the exact title, also IMMEDIATELY finds the exact paper with a link to a pdf of the entire thing.

If you have just a little information about a paper, missing part of the reference, maybe missing MOST of the reference.

If your keywords are exactly the same as some or all in the title, year, journal, volume, pages... You can usually find the paper.

Scientist rarely expect other scientists to do their homework for them.

Anyone with honest intellectual curiosity can locate papers given just a little information.

Anyone who claims to be a credible scientist learned how to do this in college.

Sorry, that was just a response to being called a "liar" because I won't provide a link, which I don't even know how to post, because it wasn't enough to give them the year, publication, volume, and page numbers.

Just go into Google Scholar scholar.google.com

You can enter keywords to search for any scientific subject.

If you were hoping to find disinformation from pseudo journals such as Energy and Environment, conservative think tanks, etc., you will be disappointed.

If you want to find peer-reviewed scientific papers from credible journals, I think Google Scholar has about 50 thousand (literally) different journals to access.

By combining enough of the right keywords, you can quickly find papers directly relevant to the questions you may have.

One valuable resource within Google Scholar is that it list how many times the paper in question has been cited.

This tells you the number of peer-reviewed scientific papers that cited the paper in question.

This alone tells you a lot. Was this paper taken seriously by the scientific community? The numbers don't lie.

The older a paper is, the more suspicious it might be that hardly anyone cited it.

Reproducibility is one of the requirements of the Scientific Method.

Were their results reproducible? So, why isn't anybody citing them for that fact?

In Google Scholar, you can click on the number of times cited and get a list of papers that cited the paper in question.

This can quickly guide you to the most recent papers on the subject of interest.

These papers can also be used to verify if the results of the original paper were reproducible or not.

Then you can form your own opinion about what is true in science.
