Chemistry and Patent information professionals have eagerly been anticipating the release of the next generation of the STN online service. This post provides an early look at Version One of the new STN platform. New STN truly brings the power and functionality of Big Data to the study of chemical, and patent information. Searches that were nearly unthinkable in the past can now be done in record time.
