If you have tried finding the publication using the Online ID method and before manually entering a publication try Symplectic Element's search feature. Symplectic can try to find a publication either in the system (another CCHMC author has already add it into the system) and/or will try an external database e.g. CrossRef or Google Books.
Symplectic can try to find a journal article using CrossRef. It is best to try and find publications this way first but if that does not work then try using the directions below.
Using this method in Symplectic will check not only items already in Symplectic but also CrossRef (Extrenal)
Symplectic can try to find a book or chapter using Google Books. It is best to try and find a book this way first but if that does not work try using the directions below. Usually you will not find the chapter information and will have to enter that information manually after you find the book.
You will need to check the publication once it is imported into the system and potentially change a few things. Search by Title OR ISBN. If you do not have the ISBN find the ISBN of the book in Amazon.
