CSA makes three acquisitions.

CSA (Bethesda. MD), a division of Cambridge Information Group and a company that specializes in publishing and distributing in print and electronically 100 bibliographic and full-text databases and journals in the natural sciences, social sciences, arts & humanities, and technology areas, has made three acquisitions, including the purchase of a database, a reference and an r&d research site. No terms were given for any of the deals.

CSA has purchased Community of Science (COS; Baltimore, MD), an Internet site for the global r&d community. Designed to facilitate the business of worldwide r&d, COS represents more than 1300 universities, associations and other research institutions and builds Web-enabled management and content services to connect its members with scholarly information and resources.

COS services include: COS Expertise, an inventory of profiles of scientists and scholars; COS Funding Opportunities, an inventory of currently available grant information; COS Abstract Management System, an online publishing and meeting management solution for universities and professional societies; and, several research literature indexes. The acquired products will be integrated into CSA Illumina.

Also, CSA has acquired "The Annual Register," a compendium of political, economic and social events, from Keesings Worldwide (Bethesda, MD/Cambridge, UK). Founded in 1758 by Edmund Burke, "The Annual Register" carries an overview of the year's developments by country and regional/international organization, as well as analysis of the impact of world events on the environment, the arts, science, law, religion and sport. Keesings will continue to publish "Record of World Events," "Worldwide Government Directory," "Profiles of Worldwide Government Leaders" and "Worldwide Directory of Defense Authorities."

Finally, CSA has also purchased PapersInvited, a service developed by Business One, Inc. to assist researchers at all levels, including scientists, professors and students. The service carries listings of calls for papers issued by professional bodies, journal editors and conference organizers in a range of disciplines.
