The American Chemical Society Launches 26 Electronic Journals


The American Chemical Society (ACS), a leading scientific society for chemists and chemical engineers, announced the new electronic versions of its journals at the society's national meeting in Las Vegas last month. The launch of ACS's entire collection of 26 prestigious research journals via the Internet will make a vast range of scientific research results available faster than ever before, according to the announcement.

One new feature, titled "Articles ASAP" (As Soon As Publishable), represents an advance in scholarly publishing that will allow scientists, research institutions, governments, industry, and the public access to "real-time science," by dramatically reducing the time it takes to publish verified findings. Beginning in January 1998, ACS says it will post journal articles on the Web as soon as they have been peer reviewed, copy edited, and checked by the author for accuracy. That will allow subscribers to see "published" articles several weeks before they appear in the pages of a printed journal.

"By providing real-time science through our electronic journals, we're speeding the use of scientific advances around the world," said Robert D. Bovenschulte, who directs publishing for ACS. "Web access allows us to deliver new findings in chemistry as much as 75 percent faster than before, and with the features and conveniences that best meet the needs of individual as well as institutional subscribers."

The electronic editions of the journals-on topics ranging from biochemistry to environmental science-contain new features not available in the print journals:

Two separate formats are available to view articles: interactive text (HTML) and complete page image (PDF). Users can search and print articles from the entire database starting from 1996-forward.

State-of-the-art graphics, diagrams, and interactive video allow users to view and manipulate three-dimensional models of molecular structures and other visual models.

Flexible pricing options allow subscribers to purchase individual journals or any combination of journalswith the eventual ability to purchase individual articles.
