CAS and Taylor & Francis Collaborate to Improve Scientists' Access to Published Research

February  17, 2012 - 

February 17, 2012 - Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS), the world's authority for chemical information, and Taylor & Francis, a leading publisher of scientific journals and books, have announced that thousands of new experimental procedures for chemical reactions from three Taylor & Francis journals are now available in SciFinder®

These experimental procedures, vital in a synthetic chemist's decision making process, are in addition to those currently available in SciFinder from all ACS publications and English-language patents from the United States Patent and Trademark Office, European Patent Office, and World Intellectual Property Organization (2000 to the present).

The new experimental procedures covered in the CAS databases are from the following three high-impact Taylor & Francis journals:

Synthetic Communications
Journal of Coordination Chemistry
Phosphorus, Sulfur, and Silicon and the Related Elements

The utility of experimental procedures to scientists using SciFinder is reflected in the fact that this content is leading researchers directly to more and more of the original full-text publications.

Christine McCue, vice president of marketing at CAS commented that "As we pursue our mission to provide access to the world's reputable scientific output, CAS is delighted to provide Taylor & Francis experimental procedures to the hundreds of thousands of SciFinder users worldwide." 

CAS has long recognized the importance of global chemical publications to research and will continue adding relevant content in 2012. In particular, SciFinder will also have experimental procedures from other sources including English-language translations from German and Japanese patents from 2008 to the present and two journals from the Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry, Chinese Journal of Organic Chemistry and Acta Chimica Sinica.
