Acs Publications And Cas Expand Chemical Research Capabilities

At the annual ACS meeting in New Orleans, ACS announced that scientists, librarians, and academicians can now seamlessly and instantly link from references in ACS journals to CAS databases.

Up to now, references in chemistry journals were static listings of related articles of interest. Now, users of ACS electronic journals will be able to immediately link from references to the relevant Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) record gaining instant access to the abstract and bibliographic information.

Through an innovative new program developed through the ChemPort Connection, users are able to click on the “CAS” tag for corresponding information that is in the CAplus database.

The ChemPort Connection is built into each of CAS’s electronic services, including STN Express with Discover!, STN Easy, STN on the Web, SciFinder, and SciFinder Scholar.

ChemPort now includes the participation of 21 of the world’s most well respected scientific publishers and two patent offices. In total, ChemPort links to the electronic versions of more than 700 journals.
