ISI releases the CompuMath Citation Index on CD-ROM.

The Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) has announced the release of the CompuMath Citation Index on a CD-ROM format. This new citation database offers a rolling 5-year file, covering nearly 350 of the world's leading computer science and mathematics journals. The CompuMath Citation Index on CD-ROM will also provide individually selected coverage of relevant items from more than 7,300 of the world's leading science, social sciences, and arts and humanities journals. The database will be published bimonthly and will be available for Windows, Macintosh, and MS-DOS.

The CompuMath Citation Index on CD-ROM will allow both current and retrospective searching via a 5-year rolling file of data with the 1997 subscription including data back to 1993. More than 50,000 source items will be indexed per year on topics such as computer applications in chemistry and engineering, computer sciences (general and special topics), mathematical methods in biology and science, mathematics (applied, general, and pure), statistics and probability, and systems sciences. For each item indexed, the CompuMath Citation Index on CD-ROM provides complete bibliographic data, full-length author abstracts, and cited references.

"The CompuMath Citation Index on CD-ROM is the only database of its kind to offer the unique ISI benefit of cited reference searching, which allows researchers to take a known paper and easily find other, more recent papers that cite the original paper," said Keith MacGregor, vice president and general manager, Citation Products Division, ISI. "We are very pleased to serve the information needs of these researchers by offering a citation index designed for those doing research in computer sciences and mathematics."

The CompuMath Citation Index is also available in a print edition, which is published semiannually and includes two hard-cover semiannual cumulations as well as in a 1976-1980 print cumulation, which provides all the data and features of the corresponding annuals plus thousands of records not previously indexed in the annuals.
