Electrochemical Society (ECS) Launches Digital Library Wednesday, 29 March 2006 10:28 amPosted by Dongmei in chemistry, Internet Resources.
Electrochemical Society announced the opening of the ECS Digital Library (ECS DL), the first step toward making all ECS content available all the time, in one seamless resource.
"While the ECS Digital Library is still in development, users can now search across both peer-reviewed ECS journals, Journal of The Electrochemical Society (JES) and the rapid-publication Electrochemical and Solid-State Letters, as well as Meeting Abstracts. The journals are the leaders in the field (according to the ISI Science Citation Index) and the extended Meeting Abstracts gives scientists a first look into current research.
In addition to robust, cross-publication searching, the ECS Digital Library (http://ecsdl.org/) offers many useful tools for the researcher. These include free cross-journal searching, the ability to view individual articles online before the entire journal is released, extensive links to primary publishers and databases, the ability to download full bibliographic citations, and a suite of personalization tools, such as MyArticles, which allows users to collect important articles, share them with colleagues, and manage multiple collections.
The Society’s newest publication, ECS Transactions (ECST), will be available through the Digital Library at the end of April. Interface magazine is now available through the DL and Interface articles will be integrated in the search function later in 2006. Once the ECS Digital Library is fully operational, the Society’s proceedings volume series (now replaced by ECS Transactions) and older meeting abstracts content will be searchable, as well. ECS has been capturing the legacy content of JES going back to the first volume from 1902. Content will be added to the archives as it becomes available."
