The Chemical Abstracts Service and the National Institutes of Health Library have signed an agreement that will give NIH scientists enterprise-wide access to SciFinder, a database of chemical substances and related science information, CAS said this week.
According to CAS, a division of the American Chemical Society, the agreement will give scientists access to one of the largest curated collections of publicly disclosed information on chemistry and related research.
It will provide data on chemical substances, reactions, and other related content from more than 10,000 major scientific journals worldwide, patents from 63 global patent authorities, dissertations, meeting abstracts, electronic-only journals and other web sources, CAS said.
Scientists can use the chemical structures, property values, researcher and organization names, and research topics provided in the resource to explore scientific work disclosed by researchers around the world.
The financial details of the arrangement were not disclosed.
