H.W. Wilson Expands Science Databases Coverage; Will Deliver Full Text of Education Publications


H.W. Wilson has announced that additions have been made to its General Science Databases. Also, a new resource based on the Education Abstracts database will be made available early next year.

Coverage of 37 leading science periodicals will soon be added to coverage currently provided by H.W. Wilson General Science databases: General Science Index, General Science Abstracts, and General Science Abstracts Full Text. The additions bring the number of publications covered by each of these bibliographic references to 168-a 28 percent increase.

General Science Index provides researchers and students with indexing of articles cover to cover in a wide range of publications as far back as May 1984. General Science Abstracts delivers indexing back to 1984, as well as abstracts of articles cover to cover back to March 1993. General Science Abstracts Full Text provides indexing back to 1984, abstracting back to 1993, and the full text of 36 select publications back to January 1995.

Access to the full text of leading publications in education will soon be available, according to a recent company announcement, through a new resource based on the H.W. Wilson database Education Abstracts. The new Education Abstracts Full Text will provide abstracting and indexing of each of the 427 periodicals and yearbooks covered by Education Abstracts, plus full-text content from a select 133.
