Abstract (provisional) 

The Scopus database provides access to STM journal articles and the references included in those articles, allowing the searcher to search both forward and backward in time. The database can be used for collection development as well as for research. This review provides information on the key points of the database and compares it to Web of Science. Neither database is inclusive, but complements each other. If a library can only afford one, choice must be based in institutional needs.


Electrochemical Society’s Digital Library

The Electrochemical Society is pleased to announce 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.
