CAS Extends Access to Additional Research from Early 20th Century

Aug 31, 2004

CAS has expanded its "Scientific Century" project by making thousands of additional early 20th century articles from American Chemical Society (ACS) journals and others available online. Planned for release in September, the enhanced content is expected to enable researchers to access more than 7,000 additional records back to 1900, including publications even older than the beginning of Chemical Abstracts (CA). Newly added information accessible through STN services, SciFinder, and SciFinder Scholar includes material from ACS journals and other sources such as: Journal of the American Chemical Society; Journal of Physical Chemistry; and documents of lasting importance published from 1900 - 1912 in various sources and not originally covered in CA.
