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: It’s All in the Mix: Jülich Researchers are Developing Fast-Charging Solid-State Batteries

There are currently great hopes for solid-state batteries. They contain no liquid parts that could leak or catch fire. For this reason, they do not require cooling and are considered to be much safer, more reliable, and longer lasting than traditional lithium-ion batteries. Jülich scientists have now introduced a new concept that allows currents up to ten times greater during charging and discharging than previously described in the literature. The improvement was achieved by a “clever” choice of materials with a focus on consistently good compatibility. All components were made from phosphate compounds, which are well matched both chemically and mechanically.

The low current is considered one of the biggest hurdles in the development of solid-state batteries. It is the reason why the batteries take a relatively long...

Im Focus: Color effects from transparent 3D-printed nanostructures

New design tool automatically creates nanostructure 3D-print templates for user-given colors
Scientists present work at prestigious SIGGRAPH conference

Most of the objects we see are colored by pigments, but using pigments has disadvantages: such colors can fade, industrial pigments are often toxic, and...

Im Focus: Unraveling the nature of 'whistlers' from space in the lab

A new study sheds light on how ultralow frequency radio waves and plasmas interact

Scientists at the University of California, Los Angeles present new research on a curious cosmic phenomenon known as "whistlers" -- very low frequency packets...

Im Focus: New interactive machine learning tool makes car designs more aerodynamic

Scientists develop first tool to use machine learning methods to compute flow around interactively designable 3D objects. Tool will be presented at this year’s prestigious SIGGRAPH conference.

When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other object, they would normally model...

Im Focus: Robots as 'pump attendants': TU Graz develops robot-controlled rapid charging system for e-vehicles

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.

Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....
