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: Temperature-controlled fiber-optic light source with liquid core

In a recent publication in the renowned journal Optica, scientists of Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena showed that they can accurately control the optical properties of liquid-core fiber lasers and therefore their spectral band width by temperature and pressure tuning.

Already last year, the researchers provided experimental proof of a new dynamic of hybrid solitons– temporally and spectrally stationary light waves resulting...

Im Focus: AchemAsia 2019 will take place in Shanghai

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.

Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.

Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...
