Chest Agreement gives academics unlimited access to chemical research from SciFinder
26 October 2011
Researchers at more than 47 academic institutions in the UK and Ireland have access to SciFinder, a leading chemical information research tool.
Eduserv and the Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) division of the American Chemical Society have announced a new agreement to provide unlimited SciFinder access to the 47 members of the Chest consortium, that includes the University of Oxford, University of Cambridge and University of Manchester.
SciFinder is the preferred source of chemical information for scientists around the globe. With unlimited access, SciFinder is available to researchers in chemistry departments, as well as those in other science departments throughout a university, including biochemistry, biology and related biosciences, pharmacy and pharmacology, forensics, physics, medical and dental, biomedical engineering and material science.
Under the SciFinder access agreement, current students and academics from all departments at these institutions will have access to SciFinder and the CAS databases of disclosed chemistry and related scientific research. Whether writing grant proposals or journal articles or designing their next experiments, researchers benefit from having the world's leading research and discovery tool at their fingertips.
"Expanding our relationship with CAS ensures that SciFinder is affordable and accessible to all students and academic staff across varied university disciplines and organisations. Because of the world-class information scope and timeliness, unlimited SciFinder Access is expected to materially increase scientific research productivity and accelerate innovation in the UK and Ireland," said Hilary Singleton, Commercial Director at Eduserv.
"We are excited to continue our support of the valuable research efforts at these esteemed academic institutions", said Paul Peters, CAS's senior representative in Europe. "With unlimited SciFinder access, all student and faculty researchers at academic institutions across the U.K. and Ireland will have on-demand access to tens of millions of peer-reviewed research papers, patents, reactions, and substances."
