Nieuwe Versie SciFinder Web

Twee weken geleden heeft de webversie van SciFinder een update ondergaan. Hieronder vindt u een beknopt overzicht van wat nieuw en/of verbeterd is. Bekijk de wijzigingen zelf op https://scifinder.cas.org.

In deze nieuwe versie zijn de volgende features en verbeteringen doorgevoerd:

  • Reactie zoeken
  • Structuur tekenen
  • Commerciële beschikbaarheid
  • Antwoordensets
  • Postprocessing

Reactie zoeken

“Reaction Searches” nog nauwkeuriger uitvoeren

  • Met de “Find Additional Reactions” feature zijn na het uitvoeren van een “reaction search” meer dan 13,6 miljoen “synthetic preparations” en relevante referenties extra beschikbaar
  • Verfijn reactie-antwoordensets door vooraf te filteren of juist achteraf te verfijnen op “Non-participating Functional Groups of classes”

Structuur tekenen

Teken structuren efficiënter

  • SciFinder Web is nu ook compatibel met ChemDraw. Structuren getekend in ChemDraw zijn te kopiëren en te plakken naar de SciFinder Structure Drawing Tool
  • Makkelijker tekenen van structuren door shortcuts op het toetsenbord te gebruiken voor atomen en bindingen

Commerciële beschikbaarheid

Betere toegang tot informatie van leveranciers van chemicaliën

  • Bepaal zelf preferred of non-preferred chemical suppliers
  • Organiseer “supplier” informatie met een nieuwe weergave van de records
  • Bekijk commerciële beschikbaarheid in één oogopslag door de aanwezigheid van een erlenmeyer

Antwoordensets

Werk gemakkelijker met gecombineerde antwoordensets

  • Combineer actieve antwoordensets met reeds eerder opgeslagen antwoordensets

Postprocessing

Efficiënter verwerken van resultaten

  • Exporteer bibliografische informatie naar “reference managers” in het .ris formaat
  • Bestel meerdere full-text documenten tegelijk
  • Print in PDF formaat (als standaard ingesteld)

STN Crossover Limits for CAS Registry Numbers in Key Databases Increase to 500,000

Increase your STN search power by taking advantage of the expanded crossover limits for CAS Registry Numbers. Now you can crossover up to 500,000 CAS Registry Numbers at one time from CAS REGISTRY to six key STN databases instead of the previous limit of 300,000. The new limit applies to the following databases:

  • BIOSIS
  • EMBASE
  • USPATFULL
  • CA/CAplus
  • MEDLINE
  • USPAT2

There is a charge to crossover each CAS Registry Number® into non-CAS databases. Enter HELP COST in the CAS REGISTRY or ZREGISTRY databases for details.

Database nieuws

CA/CAplus Streamlined with Removal of Pre-IPC 8 Data Fields

Pre-IPC 8 fields (IC, ICM, ICS, ICA, ICI) will be removed from the following CA/CAplus pre-defined display formats, effective March 27, 2010:

  • STD / ISTD
  • ALL / IALL / DALL
  • MAX / IMAX / DMAX
  • CLASS

These data are redundant with the data appearing in the IPCI field.

Pre-IPC 8 fields will continue to be available for searching and custom display for pre-IPC 8 patents (from 2005 and earlier).

CAPLUS 50,000 World Traditional Medicine (WTM) Patents added

A total of 22,000 World Traditional Medicine (WTM) patents from many different countries were recently added to the CAplus archive, increasing the total number of these unique patents to 50,000. WTM records expand coverage of this unique type of prior art, which is gaining in importance to the pharmaceutical and consumer products industries.

In 2007, CAS added 13,000 WTM patent records primarily from China to CAplus. An additional 15,000 WTM records from China, Japan, the United States, and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WO) were added in 2008.

Listed below are some characteristics of the most recently added WTM patents:

  • can originate from any country, including the U.S., France, and Canada
  • can be older material, back as far as 1986, and as new as 2006
  • have Supplementary Terms (ST) but not Index Terms (IT). The ST indexing typically contains the Latin names of plants and animals used in creating the preparations and remedies documented in these patents
  • have "nonindexed” and “nosection" as the values in the File Segment (FS) field

EMBASE Adds Unique Records from MEDLINE, Expanding Coverage back to 1948

EMBASE has expanded its indexing collection to more than 7,000 journals and increased the size of its database by 8.4 million records going back to 1948 by adding unique records from MEDLINE.

EMBASE 1974 to present
MEDLINE 1948 to present

MEDLINE records will now be included as part of the regular daily updates for EMBASE. The unique MEDLINE records retrieved from EMBASE differ from their counterparts in MEDLINE by having EMTREE indexing.

To accommodate the new MEDLINE records, several new features have been added to EMBASE:

  • New Copyright MEDLINE (CP) field – indicates that the record came from MEDLINE. This field is part of the BIB (default) display format.
  • New File Segment (FS) Data – The term MEDLINE appears in the /FS field when the record is a unique MEDLINE record. This field is both searchable and displayable.
  • New values for SET RANGE – Enter SET RANGE=MEDL to restrict retrieval to unique MEDLINE records only. Enter SET RANGE=NMED to restrict retrieval to traditional EMBASE items only
  • New update fields – The Update Date MEDLINE (/UPAL) and Entry Date MEDLINE (/EDAL) allow customer current-awareness alerts (SDIs) to retrieve both traditional EMBASE records and unique MEDLINE records.

Please note the impact on your EMBASE SDI search strategies:

  • Including the Update Date (/UP) or Entry Date (/ED) fields in your EMBASE SDI search strategy will now restrict your retrieval to traditional EMBASE records only.
  • If you want to include MEDLINE unique records in your SDI, you must update your search strategies with the new /UPAL and /EDAL fields.
  • If you take no action, your SDIs will run as always with no unique MEDLINE data included.

INPADOCDB - New Zealand Legal Status Codes

As announced in August 2009, we are pleased to inform you that the work on the New Zealand legal status code sheets has been completed.

INPADOCDB - Additional publication types covered

DK T6 – European patent specification with English or Danish description and limited Danish claims (from 18.02.2010 onwards)

Serbia is a new patent country (publications from 26.09.2006 onwards):

  • RS A – patent application
  • RS B – granted patent
  • RS U – petty patent

MEDLINE Coverage Is Extended Back to 1947

The MEDLINE backfile has been extended back to 1947, adding an extra 63,839 records to MEDLINE’s coverage.

These records are not eligible for current-awareness alerts (SDIs).

PATDPAFULL - enhanced with patent drawing images

The German full-text database PATDPAFULL has been enhanced with images of the first page for published applications, granted patents and utility models.

In a first step images will be available from January 2010. Backfile images will be loaded continously and the file entry banner will provide information about the progress of image loading.

Images of the first page can be displayed with the display format GI. Several predefined display formats containing images were established, e.g. STDG, BRIEFG, ALLG and MAXG. The corresponding .M-formats are also available, e.g. ALLG.M could be used to display the full-texts plus images of all publications referring to a single database record (application).

WPINDEX/WPIDS/WPIX: New ALLSTR display format

The new display format ALLSTR allows to display all the structures of well-defined chemical compounds pertaining to a particular bibliographic document in WPINDEX/WPIDS/WPIX regardless whether they have been searched for before or not. This serves to provide easily discernible substance identification in the bibliographic documents.

Additional text data pertaining to the structure is displayed as well:

  • DCSE: Derwent Chemical Resource Number, DCR Segment
  • CN.P: Chemical Name Preferred
  • CN.S: Systematic Chemical Name
  • SDCN: Structure Segment Derwent Compound Number
  • SDRN: Structure Segment Derwent Registry Number

WPINDEX/WPIDS/WPIX: US National Patent Classification thesaurus added to DWPI

The US National Patent Classification thesaurus is attached to the /NCL field and allows the definitions of NCL codes to be viewed in their respective hierarchy. The relationships can also be employed to facilitate searching.

The definitions of the codes have also been parsed, and added to the thesaurus (KT or keywords terms) to allow for identifying appropriate codes for a certain topic.

The US NCL thesaurus may be updated periodically subject to availability of the data.
