We would like to announce following two changes to the databases available via the Web of Science:
1. The MPG subscription has been extended to Thomson Reuters Citation Connection. This provides MPG researchers with additional access to following databases:
- Biosis Citation Index, 1926-
- Data Citation Index, 1990-
- Derwent Innovation Index, 1963- (incl. Derwent Chemical Reactions, DCR, 1981- )
- Current Contents Connect, 1998-
- Medline, 1950-
In addition, the Web of Science Core Collection has been expanded by following segments:
- Book Citation Index, 2005-
- Current Chemical Reactions, 1986- (incl. INPI Data, 1840-1985)
- Index Chemicus (IC), 1993-
2. Unfortunately, the subscription to Inspec will terminate end of 2014, thus the database will no longer be available via WoS in 2015. The decision was taken due to the continuously decreasing usage of the database which suggests that a MPG-wide license is no longer reasonable.
Any feedback is welcome, please feel free to fill up the contact form.
