CAS unveils latest enhancements to SciFinder research tool - 14 Sep 2006

The Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS), a division of the American Chemical Society, has announced the release of SciFinder 2007. The latest version of the SciFinder intelligent research tool, slated for launch in the fourth quarter of 2006, will include new features that enable users to process records more conveniently, including those for commercially available chemicals.

The latest release is expected to make it easier for scientists to fine-tune their answer sets for chemistry-related literature, substances and reactions. The enhancements were demonstrated by CAS at the American Chemical Society national meeting in San Francisco. Enhancements include combining answer sets for substances, reactions, and references; export of commercial chemical records from CHEMCATS into excel; exploring from substance display; and printing structures in thumbnail display format.

SciFinder seeks to provide scientists with easy, point-and-click access to chemical information. The desktop tool is claimed to be an immediate hit with scientists, assisting them and other researchers worldwide with access to the multidisciplinary CAS databases.

BioMed Central launches open access chemistry journal - 14 Sep 2006

Chemistry Central, a new initiative of open access (OA) publisher BioMed Central, has launched the Chemistry Central Journal, an OA peer-reviewed, online chemistry journal. This was announced at the ongoing American Chemical Society meeting in San Francisco. The journal is expected to publish its first articles in early 2007.

Chemistry Central Journal claims to be the first international OA journal that covers the entire gamut of topics in chemistry. It encompasses all aspects of research in the subject, broken down into discipline-specific sections. Its editorial advisory board comprises senior chemistry researchers from across the world, including four Nobel laureates.

The journal seeks to offer space for research in areas where there has previously been no OA journal available. It is currently accepting submissions. All articles will be deposited in PubMed Central and will therefore be automatically linked into PubChem.
