New CSA databases on STN International

20.07.2004


At the end of June, FIZ Karlsruhe has made available on STN International, the world’s premier online service for sci-tech information, seven new databases from the renowned database producer Cambridge Scientific Abstracts (CSA) With these new files, STN now offers a total of 26 CSA databases, and remains the largest independent online provider of CSA databases. Coverage focuses on life sciences, environmental and aquatic sciences, computer sciences, materials science, engineering and aerospace.



ANTE covers new technologies such as information technology and computing, electronics, biotechnology, medical technology, as well as engineering (including construction, electrical and chemical engineering) and similar subject areas. Sources are a large number of academic and trade publications from the U.K. and the U.S.

Technical information is also provided by the two engineering databases CIVILENG and MECHENG covering worldwide literature on civil engineering (CIVILENG), mechanical and transportation engineering (MECHENG) and their complementary fields, including forensic engineering, management and marketing of engineering services, engineering education, theoretical mechanics and dynamics, and mathematics and computation.


Information on environmental issues is available in three of the new databases:
ENVIROENG covers the world literature pertaining to technological and engineering aspects of air and water quality, environmental safety, and energy production. WATER and AQUALINE cover international scientific, technical and trade literature on water-related topics and all aspects of water resources, including supplies management, water legislation, water quality, potable water distribution, wastewater collection, water treatment technologies, wastewater and sewage treatment, and ecological and environmental effects of water pollution.

BIOENG provides bibliographic coverage of ground-breaking research, applications, regulatory developments and new patents across all areas of biotechnology and bioengineering, including medical, pharmaceutical, agricultural, environmental and marine biology.

Another CSA database designed for library professionals and other information scientists, covering librarianship, information science and their related areas, will soon be made available on STN by FIZ Karlsruhe.

The more than 220 databases hosted on STN International can be accessed by dialing in to STNs online service using its powerful proprietary client software, STN Express with Discover!, or over the Internet using a standard web browser (http://stnweb.fiz-karlsruhe.de).

Full-text publications on the searched subjects can be ordered online, using the STN Full-Text-Solution providing connections to various document delivery services, or through FIZ Karlsruhes document delivery broker service FIZ AutoDoc (http://autodoc.fiz-karlsruhe.de).

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
