WilsonWeb Adds Applied Science & Business Periodicals Retrospective

H.W. Wilson ( announced Applied Science & Business Periodicals Retrospective: 1913–1983, a new reference database that brings together decades of content from Applied Science & Technology Index and Business Periodicals Index. The database can be used by students, educators, journalists, and others for tracking down milestone studies, exploring historical controversies, finding papers by innovators, researching the development of particular technologies, and answering the many questions from business and industry that only historical journalism can shed light on.

Applied Science & Business Periodicals Retrospective lets users search more than 4.5 million articles published in more than 2,000 periodicals, 1913 to 1983. The database includes the complete content of Industrial Arts Index (published 1913 to 1958), precursor to both Applied Science & Technology Index and Business Periodicals Index. Content dating from 1958 forward comes from Applied Science & Technology Index and Business Periodicals Index, published separately (with distinct coverage) starting that year. Updated subject headings make finding information easy using contemporary terms, though historical subject headings are also searchable. Personal and corporate names used as subject headings are standardized to ensure retrieval of all records about an individual or company.

Applied Science & Business Periodicals Retrospective can be searched seamlessly with Applied Science & Technology Full Text and Business Periodicals Full Text, providing access to nearly a century of data when combined with these contemporary databases. The database also makes an excellent complement to contemporary resources from other vendors, searching the journalistic record far beyond the typical retrospective coverage. Almost 50 of the journals in JSTOR, for example, are also covered by Applied Science & Business Periodicals Retrospective.
