Access an additional 1.8 million records exclusively enhanced with 1.9 million CAS Registry Numbers-EMBASE Classic on STN
18, 2010 -
The EMBASE Classic backfile, covering records from 1947 to 1973, has been added to the EMBASE database on STN.
EMBASE Classic augments the 8.4 million records added to EMBASE earlier this year when the MEDLINE Uniques file segment was added to the database. The backfile contains 1.8 million biomedical publications from 1942 through 1943 and pharmacological records covering more than 3,400 international publications.
Get an exclusive bonus of 1.9 million CAS Registry Numbers
While other vendors' versions of EMBASE Classic provide access to substance information via CAS Registry Numbers, STN's implementation is superior. Using the Drug Descriptor Terms in EMBASE Classic records, CAS generated Registry Numbers for 480,000 records that lacked Registry Numbers altogether. Supplemental CAS Registry Numbers were supplied for another 180,000 records. Altogether, CAS added nearly 1.9 million CAS Registry Numbers to these 660,000 enhanced EMBASE Classic records!
You can use these CAS Registry Numbers to link the content of EMBASE Classic to the content of the most recent published literature covered in EMBASE and in more than 60 other STN databases containing CAS Registry Numbers.
