ISI Increases Content, Updates Services.
The Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) has announced the planned release of v1.5 of Current Contents Connect (CC Connect) for sitewide Internet customers. Also, the company announced the release of v2.0 of Chemistry Server.
New Current Contents Connect
The new version of CC Connect, which ISI says will be released in February, will give users the ability to set up and manage alerts that will run against the Current Contents data. Once a week the results are automatically forwarded to a specified email address.
The new version also includes product enhancements such as a logoff button that cancels the active sessions and allows the user to complete a feedback form; summary list marking that gives the user options to easily mark records for printing, exporting, and document delivery; summary list navigation that provides easier navigation between all results pages; and enhanced navigation of Current Web Contents categories.
"We are very pleased to offer this new version of Current Contents Connect," said Yin Caraher, senior vice president of sales and market development at ISI. "Version 1.5 will provide our customers with a more efficient way to use this powerful search tool and will offer time-saving access to the current-awareness information they seek."
Current Contents Connect provides Web access to Current Contents, a current-awareness database that provides information in the fields of science, social science, technology, and arts and humanities. Current Contents Connect provides immediate access, powerful search capabilities, and linkages to other research tools and resources, according to ISI.
ISI Chemistry Server v2.0
Version 2.0 of ISI Chemistry Server allows cross-file searching of Reaction Center and the new Compound Center database. The addition of Compound Center increases the utility of ISI Chemistry Server by including structure diagrams and other information on more than 650,000 organic compounds. The database is updated monthly with more than 16,000 new compounds.
According to the announcement, ISI Chemistry Server provides a flexible Web interface to high-quality, up-to-date chemical information databases. Navigational features allow researchers to access structure databases and perform substructure and reaction searches with a Web browser. This sitewide solution currently features Reaction Center, the reaction database that focuses on novel synthetic chemistry and provides diverse coverage of new reaction information published in the worldwide journal and patent literature. Reaction Center provides coverage of a wide variety of reaction types, including more than 10,000 solid-phase reactions, and covers broad areas of chemistry including organic and organometallic chemistry, agrochemistry, and pharmaceutical science.
ISI Chemistry Server also provides links to relevant bibliographic and cited reference information found in the ISI Web of Science. Mutual subscribers to both products can take advantage of additional research capabilities such as "times cited" data that enable users to identify the impact of research; the Related Records feature that lets researchers navigate through additional related literature; and access to full-text articles available through links to electronic journal subscriptions.
