Extended access to early 20th Century research by CAS

Aug 25, 2004 by

CAS has expanded its “Scientific Century” project by making thousands of additional early 20th century articles from American Chemical Society (ACS) journals and others available online. Planned for release in September, the enhanced content will enable researchers to access more than 7,000 additional records back to 1900, including publications even older than the beginning of Chemical Abstracts (CA).

The newly added information will be accessible through STN services, SciFinder and SciFinder Scholar.

More info on the content:

  • Journal of the American Chemical Society – more than 1,500 records, including abstracts for journal articles and summaries for book reviews;
  • Journal of Physical Chemistry – more than 5,200 records, including abstracts of articles published in the journal plus other “abstracts of interest” to the journal (i. e. published in other sources of the time); and
  • more than 400 documents of lasting importance published from 1900 – 1912 in various sources and not originally covered in CA. These are landmark publications cited in CA/CAplus files since 1998.
