Finding Background Information on Food & Chemical Substances
Encyclopedias are a good way to get background information. They provide a broad overview of your topic and put it in the context of what is already known about the subject.
References are included at the ends of articles to point you to further information. The long reference lists are a good way to identify useful articles. See this tutorial on finding an article when you have the citation in hand.
Finding Food Science-Related Articles
Use an article index or database to find articles on your topic. An article index gives you information about articles such as article title, abstract, author, journal or magazine name, issue, and year. Sometimes the whole article is included. If not, you can often link out to it.
