New Reference QuickView From the American Chemical Society

ACS Publications and Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS), the information divisions of the American Chemical Society (ACS), announced jointly the introduction of Reference QuickView, a dynamic new feature powered by CAS’ SciFinder that enables readers of web content to view directly the text of abstracts linked to bibliographic citations within an ACS Publications journal article or book chapter.

Reference QuickView enables readers viewing the full-text HTML version of an ACS article to scan abstracts from the broader literature, across millions of citations drawn from a broad array of scientific disciplines covered by CAS. Navigational features facilitate quick review of an article’s references and corresponding abstracts. Links to the Reference QuickView display are placed conveniently in-line within footnotes found in the article text.

Abstract content is drawn from across the chemical literature from publications before 1907 to the present, as indexed by scientists at CAS.Reference QuickView is available for research articles and book chapters published since 2010, across the ACS portfolio of 41 high-quality, peer-reviewed scholarly journals and ACS Symposium Series books.

Researchers using Reference QuickView can dig deeper into the research literature by selecting “View Full Text Options” to access the full text of the cited reference, or they can choose “More from SciFinder” for a pathway to the corresponding CAS Reference Detail page, where they can discover more about substances, reactions, related structures, patents, and other specifics. A video highlighting the key benefits and functionality of Reference QuickView can be found on ACS Publications’ YouTube channel.
