Chemical Abstracts Service and FIZ Karlsruhe strengthen partnership

"Scientific information services provider FIZ Karlsruhe, Germany, and Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS), a division of the American Chemical Society, recently signed an agreement to further strengthen a partnership that began in 1983 with the foundation of STN International. STN International is an online service for patent and research information."

"Beginning January 2010, a team of scientists at FIZ Karlsruhe will perform value-added indexing of selected literature documents, according to the conventions used by CAS to make the information accessible within the CAS databases."

"FIZ Karlsruhe joins a global network of scientists whose expertise contributes to CAS database building. Teams of scientists in Ohio, India, China, Japan and elsewhere constitute the principal contributors to this more than 100 year-old resource."
