Springer and Chemical Abstracts Service Collaborate to Accelerate Chemistry Research

Springer Science+Business Media and Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) will collaborate on a project to include thousands of new experimental procedures for chemical reactions reported in Springer journals in the CAS databases. This collaboration will increase the visibility of articles with experimental procedures published in 165 Springer chemistry journals from 1985 to the present.

The addition of experimental procedures from Springer journal articles provides important information that helps scientists evaluate search results. Using “SciFinder, The choice for chemistry research,” a tool that allows scientists to explore the CAS databases, critical full-text articles that are essential to scientists in their research can be identified quickly.

CAS provides access to more than 62 million single- and multistep reactions and synthetic preparations, as well as associated experimental procedures for reactions, through SciFinder. The information in CAS is provided by journals from prestigious publishers and patents issued by major patent offices. CAS has long recognized how important global chemical publications are to research and will continue adding relevant chemistry content throughout 2013.

Christine McCue, vice president of marketing at CAS, said, “CAS is dedicated to providing the most comprehensive and authoritative chemical information. The addition of experimental procedures from the respected Springer collection compliments the millions of procedures already available from other esteemed publishers and patent authorities. The information will help scientists using SciFinder identify the preferred synthetic methods, and is an integral part of the research cycle as they seek the original published research.”
