Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) and CSA have agreed to add eight CSA databases to the STN International online network during 2004. STN, operated by CAS in North America, FIZ Karlsruhe in Europe and JST in Japan, focuses on CSA's offerings in the life sciences, environmental and aquatic sciences, computer sciences, materials science, and engineering and aerospace. Subject areas represented by the CSA databases soon to join STN are biotechnology, engineering specialties, earth and environmental studies, and library and information science.
CSA, a Cambridge Information Group company, is a publisher of bibliographic databases and print journals. Its Internet Database Service provides Web access to bibliographic databases covering major areas of research including materials science, environmental sciences, and pollution management, biological sciences, aquatic sciences and fisheries, biotechnology, engineering, computer science, sociology, information technology, art history, political science, and linguistics.
CAS, a division of the American Chemical Society, is an organization of scientists dedicated to creating and delivering the most complete and effective digital information environment for scientific research and discovery.
