John Wiley Launches New Digital Collection and Databases
:: From the InfoToday Weekly News Digest:
John Wiley & Sons, Inc. announced the launch of the Analytical Sciences Backfile Collection. This is the latest addition to its growing collection of digitized journal libraries; it is the second one to be launched this year. The Analytical Sciences Backfile Collection is available via Wiley InterScience (http://www.interscience.wiley.com/backfiles), Wiley’s online publishing platform.
Spanning the years 1968 to 1998, the Analytical Sciences Backfile Collection contains digitized back-issue content across 13 journal titles. Subscribers now have access to more than 24,000 research articles and more than 180,000 digitized pages of new analytical sciences content. Articles are presented as fully searchable PDFs, with abstracts, bibliographic content, and literature citations available in HTML, which allows for both internal linking to cited content located on Wiley InterScience and external linking via CrossRef/DOI, PubMed, ISI Web of Science, and CAS.
John Wiley & Sons also announced the launch of two new natural products databases designed for organic and biochemistry research: AntiBase 2005 (for ISIS/Base and ChemFinder) and AmicBase 2005 (on CD-ROM in the following formats: Microsoft Access, CambridgeSoft ChemFinder, and MDL ISIS/Base). AntiBase 2005 is a database of 31,022 natural compounds from microorganisms and higher fungi. The data in AntiBase 2005 has been collected from the primary and secondary literature and then carefully checked and validated. AmicBase 2005 contains information about the antimicrobial and toxicological properties of pharmaceutical drugs and natural compounds produced through microorganisms and higher plants.
