ALERT: Mallet Library Closed for WEL Renovation

The Mallet Chemistry Library is moving out for the duration of the upcoming Welch Hall renovation project. See our closing page for details on how to access our materials and services while we're away.

Unpaywall: a new plugin that finds free versions of paywalled articles

This cool new plugin (from Impactstory) for Firefox and Chrome finds open access full text of articles that are otherwise behind subscription paywalls. The open versions are deposited by authors in various repositories as part of the "Green OA" movement to provide wider - and legal - access to content that is locked away by publishers. The success rate of this plugin is a remarkable 50% or so. [4/11/17]

New Reaxys Interface

The new Reaxys interface is a totally redesigned search experience. There's also expanded literature and patent coverage. It's still a work in progress. Try it out via the "New Reaxys" button when you connect. The old interface is scheduled to be retired in May 2017, so now's the time to get familiar with the new version. [rev. 4/10/17]

ACS Articles Now Show Altmetric "Attention Scores"

ACS Publications has partnered with Altmetric, a commercial metrics platform that provides authors with a single view of online activity, to display an "attention score" on all articles published in ACS research journals. Altmetric tracks a variety of sources, including social media, traditional media (both mainstream and science specific), online reference managers, forums and Wikipedia. The information is aggregated to produce a qualitative measure of the quality and quantity of attention received by an article. (Read more about how the score is calculated.) In addition, articles now also show a count of total online views from the ACS platform. [1/19/17]

C&EN is now C&EN Global Enterprise

The news magazine of the ACS has moved into the platform for all the ACS research journals and has been rebranded. This merges the front file of current issues with the historical archive and puts all the content in one place at last. We have full text access back to 1923. [1/15/17]

ACS and RSC Sign ORCID Integration Letter

By becoming signatories to the ORCID Open Letter, these two major chemical society publishers announce their intent to collect ORCID iDs for all submitting authors through use of the ORCID API, and to display such identifiers in the articles published in their respective journals. The integration of such activities within the publishers' workflows means authors will benefit from automated linkages between their ORCID record and unique identifiers embedded within their published research articles, ensuring their contributions are appropriately recognized and credited.
