ACS Completes Digitization Project

The publications division of the American Chemical Society (ACS) announced the completed digitization of supporting information for its ACS Legacy Archives journals.

ACS created files for 40,000 of its original research articles (adding up to 800,000 pages of supporting information data) in order to broaden its journals’ online accessibility. ACS Legacy Archives offer almost 500,000 articles published between 1879 and 1995.

Examples of supporting information include tabular data, illustrations, diagrams, experimental procedures, software programming code, and mathematical derivations.

These materials are openly available on the ACS publications website; researchers can download supporting information from the abstract page of any ACS Legacy Archive journal article that contains the digitized data. They can also access indexed metadata and do full-text searches of the files associated with the articles.

This digitization project “preserves and makes broadly accessible a significant amount of the 20th century’s primary research data for the global community of chemists,” says Brandon Nordin, vice president of sales, marketing, and digital strategy for ACS publications.
