From CA to CAS online: databases in chemistry

Front Cover
Springer-Verlag, 1994 - Computers - 311 pages
The multiplicity of modern chemistry is reflected in the complexity of Chemical Abstracts (CA) and other chemistry related databases. This book provides the key for successful and systematic searching both online and in printed media. It explains the structure of CA and demonstrates how to build problem-oriented search strategies and to ensure a comprehensive and complete recovery of the respective information. The book covers patent information in detail, as it also does for crossfile searching between Derwent's World Patents Index and CA files, now available through STN. The tips and tricks offered in many sample searches and the details on databases, services, and hosts provided will be of use to the online novice and the experienced information specialist as well.
