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

Description:

Scopus is an abstracting and citation database of peer-reviewed literature with tools to track and analyze and research. It contains over 22,000 titles from more than 5,000 publishers around the world, covering the fields of science, technology, medicine, social sciences, and arts & humanities. Scopus has 55 million records dating back to 1823, 84% of which contain references dating from 1996.

Scopus is a citation index. This makes it easy to move forward and backwards chronologically in the research trail because you can easily see the papers cited by an article as well as the articles that go on to cite the article later. Citation indexes also help in determining the impact of articles and journals by highlighting which titles are most cited within a field. Use the cited reference search to track prior research and monitor current developments in over 100 years worth of content, including 59 million records that includes backfiles dating back to 1898.

Scopus also makes the free service CiteScore available. CiteScore metrics measure serial citation impact.

Note that Compendex links its search results to Scopus to indicated where the search results are cited.

UK Libraries also subscribes to Web of Science, another multidisciplinary citation index. If you are searching in Scopus, you may want to look at Web of Science as well since it will likely contain unique material.
