Genzyme science connect papers FAQ

I'm used to PubMed and Google Scholar. How is this different?

Science Connect Papers searches the same life science content as those two sources through technology provided by Pubget. The difference is that you get the PDF of the paper you’re looking for right away. Click here for how Pubget works.

Will I always get the paper right away?

You will if your company has a subscription to that paper, or if it’s free. If that’s not the case, you’ll see an abstract and some links you can follow to have your library order the paper. In particular, at Genzyme you’ll have the option to request prepaid papers right from your search results.

Is there an advanced search?

You bet, just hit the advanced link next to the search box.

What if I’d rather use PubMed for searching?

No problem. If you download Science Connect PaperPlane, you can still search on PubMed but get the paper right away.

What about other paper features like downloading, printing, citation management and bookmarking?

All of these features can be accessed in the "Tools" and "Options" menu inside of Science Connect PaperStats. You can learn more about them here.

How do I share a paper with a group or person?

We’ve pre-populated Science Connect Papers with the groups already set up in your Science Connect account. Once you’re ready to share a paper, you can click the checkbox next to the title of the paper and tag it with the group name.


What if I don’t see a group I’d like to share with?

You’ll need to create a group in the main Science Connect view.

How are groups created?

Groups are created on the Groups tab in Genzyme Science Connect.

How do I access papers that have been shared?

You can access these papers in two places. You can see papers that have been shared within groups under the Groups tab, or by clicking on the group icons under the Papers tab.

Can I remove papers from a group?

You can remove papers you added, and group administrators can remove any paper.

Can I set up RSS feeds?

Yes, any search, including those that continuously present the latest issues of journals, can be saved as RSS feeds by clicking the RSS icon in the results list.
