CSA Enhances Social Science Databases

Oct 18, 2005

CSA is sponsoring complimentary access to the new Scholar Universe: Social Science service for all customers of CSA social science databases delivered through the CSA Illumina platform. These records of verified author and faculty profiles are provided by Scholar Universe, a business unit of ContentScan, LLC.

Researchers can expand their search for relevant information beyond the document record to the relevant set of people and organizations working to increase knowledge in specific areas of interest. Scholar Universe: Social Science provides researchers with a link between static content and the active community members creating and synthesizing that content within the living process of scholarship.

Scholar Universe: Social Science will be available at no additional charge as a supplement to all of the following databases on the CSA Illumina platform: ASSIA: Applied Social Sciences Index and Abstracts; CSA Linguistics and Language Behavior Abstracts; CSA Social Services Abstracts; CSA Sociological Abstracts; CSA Worldwide Political Science Abstracts; ERIC; Health & Safety Science Abstracts; LISA: Library and Information Science Abstracts; PAIS International; Physical Education Index; and Risk Abstracts. Subscribers to these databases will receive access to more than 100,000 Scholar Profiles and Organization Profiles. These profiles cover currently active researchers at 4-year colleges and universities in the U.S. and Canada. Scholar Profiles include contact information, education, research interests, home page, and verified publication lists, as available; Organization Profiles include information, homepage, and member lists.
