New Journals: ACS Photonics and Environmental Science: Nano

 
ACS and RSC have launched yet more new journals in 2014, evidently in response to scientists' complaints that there aren't enough journals to keep track of already. [2/8/14]

New Scanning Station


The Chemistry Library now has a "KIC" scanning station, located in the copier alcove in the center of the library. You can make free scans of anything using the book-friendly platform and a high-resolution overhead camera. No more waiting for a flatbed scanner at one of our always-occupied workstations! Instructions for use are here. NOTE: Until we get a new network connection installed, the station only saves to a USB drive. Email and print options will come soon. [1/14/14]

Measuring Impact in Science


A special issue of Nature looks at the growing number of metrics used to judge the impact of scientific research, and the controversies and questions that come along with them. [11/8/13]

ACS Open Access Initatives

The American Chemical Society has announced new initiatives in the area of open access to articles in their publications. They include a new peer-reviewed, fully open journal launching in 2014, as well as additional choices and cash credits for authors choosing gold OA options in ACS journals. [11/5/13]

RSC Opens Article Repository

The Royal Society of Chemistry has launched a Chemical Sciences Article Repository where authors may deposit their open access papers for sharing and searching in a central place. The site will host Green and Gold OA chemistry papers from any publisher, with links back to the online copy of record. [10/25/13]

Engineering Library Relocated

The McKinney Engineering Library has closed and the collection relocated from ECJ to the 6th floor of PCL. This move was necessitated by the upcoming remodel of part of ECJ in preparation for the construction of the Engineering Education Research Center (EERC) over the next few years. Reserves materials formerly at Engineering are now located in the PMA Library. More information can be found here. [10/25/13]

ACS Completes Digitization of Journal Supporting Information

The American Chemical Society has announced the completion of a project to digitize legacy Supporting Information (formerly known as Supplementary Material) that accompanied articles published in the Society's journals since around 1970. SI files contained valuable tabular data, illustrations and diagrams, spectroscopic and crystallographic data, detailed procedures, software code, and other content that couldn't be contained in the published paper.
