Description:

Includes full-text access to the online versions of journals for which we have a current print subscription (28 titles). AIP Journals are a part of Scitation, online home to more than 100 journals from AIP, APS, ASME, SPIE, and other science and engineering societies (access to over 70 publications with registration). AIP Journals also offers access to the SPIN (Searchable Physics Information Notices) Database [see the search screen on Scitation), a database of physical science resources (1975 - ; updated daily) covering physics, astronomy, and related fields of science and technology. Provides indexing and abstracting of more than 100 major physics, astronomy, and engineering journals and conference proceedings. Includes Advance Abstracts for AIP journals and links to Physical Review journals before the articles are published; Physics News Service, which links to information from physical science organizations; searchable membership directories; and links to Career Services and the Center for History of Physics.

Chemical Abstracts (CA) includes extensive coverage of general chemistry and chemistry-related disciplines such as biochemistry, materials science, physical chemistry, pharmacy and chemical engineering. It indexes over 8,000 journals, patents worldwide, technical reports, conference proceedings, books, and dissertations, and contains over 16 million abstracts. In addition, it provides compound identification. The registry file contains more than 22 million substance records, including more than 16 million organic compounds and 3 million biosequences. In an average working day, CAS adds approximately 2,500 document records and 11,000 substance registrations.

SciFinder contains abstracts and structures. See the SciFinder Scholar website for additional information.

Please remember to run your searches in Reaxys. The two databases cover different time periods and are complementary. Neither one alone provides a complete chemical search.

One may search by:

  • Chemical Substance or Reaction: Explore chemical substances by chemical name, chemical structure, formulas, or CAS Registry Numbers.
  • Research Topic
  • Author Name
  • Specific Reference: Find literature by CA abstract number or patent number.

With SciFinder Scholar, you can also:

  • Get reactions, starting from structures of interest
  • Find specific CA journal or patent abstracts by entering the abstract or patent numbers
  • Refine your answer set by author name, document type, or publication year

Contact Jan Carver with any questions or problems.
