CSA Unveils Two New Engineering Databases

Cambridge Scientific Abstracts (CSA) has just introduced two new bibliographic databases that concentrate on core areas of engineering and feature cited references: CSA Civil Engineering Abstracts (http://www.csa.com/csa/factsheets/civil.shtml) and CSA Mechanical & Transportation Engineering Abstracts (http://www.csa.com/csa/factsheets/mechtrans.shtml). For complimentary 30-day access to the databases, visit http://www.csa.com/engineering.

These databases are designed to provide in-depth, comprehensive coverage of the international literature for each engineering specialty while offering record/file features that enable effective searching and retrieval. The databases are drawn from a source list of more than 3,000 engineering-related journals (including many that are not covered by other engineering databases) and provide backfiles to 1966.

CSA Civil Engineering Abstracts and CSA Mechanical & Transportation Engineering Abstracts are available through CSA's Internet Database Service, which offers features such as unlimited sitewide use, links to full text, and the Web Resources Database. The databases are the first files published by CSA to include a cited-references field that reproduces the bibliography from the journal article.

According to the announcement, the launch of CSA Civil Engineering Abstracts and CSA Mechanical & Transportation Engineering Abstracts reflects CSA's plans to expand its long-standing publishing operations in the area of engineering. Other engineering databases currently published by CSA include CSA Aerospace & High Technology Database, CSA Computer Information & Technology Collection, ANTE: Abstracts in New Technologies and Engineering, and CSA Materials Science Collection with METADEX.
