SciFinder Scholar Updates for Fall

| 2 Comments
I just got back from the ACS meeting in Boston and have some SciFinder Scholar news.

  • We now have 20 SciFinder Scholar seats available to us. Those seats are split between the client (13) and web versions (7) for now.
  • The SciFinder Scholar client software will be available until June 30, 2011.
  • Highlighted changes for the web version:
    • Find articles using DOIs with Document Identifier
    • Sort substance answer sets by MW or MF.
    • Set preferences to automatically get rid of MEDLINE results.
    • Search Markush structures, generic hypotheticals found in patents, with Explore Substances. It is limited to compounds only found in patents and not well-characterized enough to be included in the Registry.
UPDATE: I have added relevant links which I neglected when I initially posted this.
