Wiley InterScience to Launch Two Backfile Collections

Aug 20, 2004

Publisher John Wiley & Sons, Inc. has announced the September 2004 launch of its latest two collections of digitized journal libraries - the Chemistry Backfile Collection and the Materials Science Backfile Collection. Both collections will be available via Wiley InterScience, Wiley's online publishing platform. Wiley has also announced an agreement with Infotrieve, Inc. enabling Infotrieve to distribute scientific, technical, and medical (STM) content that is owned and published by Wiley.

Spanning more than 170 years, the Chemistry Backfile Collection contains digitized back-issue content across eleven journal titles. The collection provides a backfile resource for core research across the disciplines of inorganic, organic, physical, theoretical, and applied chemistry, and includes full coverage of titles such as the Journal of Computational Chemistry and Advanced Synthesis & Catalysis.

The Materials Science Backfile Collection contains almost 50 years of digitized back-issue content across fourteen journal titles. This collection provides a backfile resource for research across all materials science disciplines and includes full coverage of journals such as Advanced Materials and the Journal of Biomedical Materials Research.

All journal articles in both collections are presented in a fully searchable PDF format, with abstracts, bibliographic content, and literature citations all available in HTML, allowing for both internal linking to cited content located on Wiley InterScience, as well as external linking via CrossRef/DOI, PubMed, ISI Web of Science, and CAS to the content of scientific and technical publishers worldwide. The Chemistry and Materials Science Backfile Collections will join Wiley InterScience's other backfile offerings--the Polymer Backfile Collection, the Angewandte Chemie International Edition Backfile Collection, the Biotechnology, Biochemistry and Biophysics Backfile Collection and the upcoming Neuroscience Backfile Collection.
