NEW eSCIENCE FROM CAS PROVIDES RELEVANT WEB CONTENT IN THE
CONTEXT OF SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH
Scientists Move Seamlessly from CAS Research Services to Related
Resources on the Web
Columbus, Ohio, April 2, 2001 - Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) has introduced a new service called eScience that will let scientists enlist the resources of the web to expand upon the results of a search in CAS information products. CAS made the announcement at the American Chemical Society (ACS) national meeting held this week in San Diego.
Scientists and information specialists today use fee-based research sources - such as those from STN - as well as the free resources of the Web. CAS now conveniently offers the advantages of both in the eScience concept. Scientists can now start with STN Easy to search a collection of the most respected scientific databases available, then with the click of a mouse use eScience to extend their search to the web. CAS plans to make eScience
available to users of SciFinder, SciFinder Scholar and STN products by year-end.
"CAS is resolved to deliver the most complete digital research environment for scientists," said CAS Marketing Director, Suzan A. Brown. "Scientists are using the ChemPort connection to link from CAS research services to full-text journals and patents. Now with eScience they can access other types of related information on the web at no additional charge."
eScience resources offer users two popular search engines--Google, which scours the entire web for the topic of interest, and ChemIndustry, a specialized search engine for chemistry. eScience will also provide links to relevant scientific resources including science news from C & E News, the
New York Times, Reuters, and Yellowbrix. Featured among other science links will be the new ACS site chemistry.org, also launched at the ACS meeting in San Diego.
