Databases

Science Citation Index OPEN DATABASE 

The Science Citation Index (SCI) is a database of bibliographic data in combination with citation data. The citation analysis of around 3,800 mainly English-language journals from the fields of medicine, technology and science is the data source for the SCI. Journals covered by the SCI are a subset of journals covered by the Science Citation Index Expanded. According to Clarivate Analytics (formerly Thomson Reuters), the producer of the index, “the SCI has been strictly limited to include only the highest ranked journals in each category and, as much as possible, the highest ranked journals from each country or region”. The SCI, first produced in 1965, was the original database for the Journal Citation Reports and the calculation of journal impact factors but has been supplanted by the Science Citation Index Expanded. The list of included journals changes from year to year and the inclusion or exclusion of a journal is controlled by Clarivate Analytics (formerly Thomson Reuters). Clarivate Analytics announces criteria used in the evaluation of journals but this process is not entirely transparent.

Science Citation Index Expanded OPEN DATABASE 

The Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE) is a database of bibliographic data in combination with citation data. The citation analysis of more than 9000 mainly English-language journals from the fields of medicine, technology and science is the data source for the SCIE. The citation data in this database is the basis for the Journal Citation Reports (the Science Edition) and the calculation of journal impact factors.

The SCIE is part of the Web of Science Core Collection, together with the Social Sciences Citation Index, the Arts & Humanities Citation Index, the Conference Proceedings Citation Index – Science, the Conference Proceedings Citation Index – Social Science & Humanities, but also the Book Citation Index – Science, the Book Citation Index – Social Sciences & Humanities, the Emerging Sources Citation Index, Current Chemical Reactions, and Index Chemicus. The list of included journals changes from year to year and the inclusion or exclusion of a journal is controlled by Clarivate Analytics (formerly Thomson Reuters). Clarivate Analytics announces criteria used in the evaluation of journals but this process is not entirely transparent.

SciFinder OPEN DATABASE 

SciFinder is a bibliographic database for chemistry, biochemistry, chemical engineering and materials science. It provides access to the Chemical Abstracts database with nearly 50,000 journals indexed from 1907 to the present. Coverage includes technical reports, books, conference proceedings, dissertations, as well as patents from more than 60 patent issuing authorities around the world (complete list of sources). Links to full-text patents are also available in many cases. Special features allow users to search for information by drawing chemical structures or substructures, or by reaction, polymer and specific biosequence.

SciFinder training material can be found here.

Please note that you must first register and create a personal SciFinder account to use this database. Please contact InfoServices to obtain a login ID and password.

Scopus OPEN DATABASE 

Scopus is a large interdisciplinary bibliographic database. Scopus indexes more than 22,800 academic journals, conference proceedings, trade publications and book series. It also covers scientific web sources, including 39 mio patents from 5 patent offices (US Patent and Trademark Office, European Patent Office, Japan Patent Office, World Intellectual Property Organization and UK Intellectual Property Office) and pre-print servers (e.g. ArXiv.org).

Guides, factsheets & training material can be found in the Scopus Resource Library.

Note that Scopus links papers together based on the references cited within the papers. This feature of the database allows the analysis of citations. Through a cited reference search, you can discover how an idea or innovation has been confirmed, applied, improved, extended, or corrected.

Want to use the Papers application from Mekentosj to search Scopus? To access Scopus from Papers, it requires that you configure it with our Scopus Account ID: 000045139
More infos about enabling access to Scopus from Papers are available here.

SDBS – Spectral Database for Organic Compounds OPEN DATABASE 

SDBS is an integrated spectral database system for organic compounds, which includes six different types of spectra under a directory of the compounds. The six spectra are as follows: an electron impact Mass spectrum (EI-MS), a Fourier transform infrared spectrum (FT-IR), a 1H nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrum, a 13C NMR spectrum, a laser Raman spectrum, and an electron spin resonance (ESR) spectrum.

Social Sciences Citation Index OPEN DATABASE 

The Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI) is a database of bibliographic data in combination with citation data. The citation analysis of more than 3,300 mainly English-language journals from the social sciences is the data source for the SSCI. The citation data in this database is the basis for the Journal Citation Reports (the Social Sciences Edition) and the calculation of journal impact factors. In combination with the Science Citation Index Expanded, and the Arts & Humanities Citation Index the SSCI constitutes the Web of Science. In addition, the Conference Proceedings Citation Index became an edition of Web of Science in 2008. The list of included journals changes from year to year and the inclusion or exclusion of a journal is controlled by Clarivate Analytics (formerly Thomson Reuters). Clarivate Analytics announces criteria used in the evaluation of journals but this process is not entirely transparent.

Social Science Research Network (SSRN) OPEN DATABASE 

Social Science Research Network (SSRN) is devoted to the rapid worldwide dissemination of social science research and is composed of a number of specialized research networks in each of the social sciences. SSRN documented research from all areas of the social sciences. The publishing platform includes publications in scientific journals, but also numerous publications that have not yet been published (Working Papers). By creating an account, you can easily share and revise your research, view and download the latest research in your field and interact with thousands of scholars worldwide.

SpringerMaterials OPEN DATABASE 

SpringerMaterials provides access to curated data about 3000+ physical and chemical properties of 250,000+ materials and chemical systems.

Data sources currently include the Landolt-Börnstein New Series, the Linus Pauling Files and specialized databases on thermophysical properties, polymer thermodynamics, adsorption isotherms, and 32,000+ substance profiles.

STAT-TAB OPEN DATABASE 

STAT-TAB is the statistics database for Switzerland maintained by the Swiss Federal Statistical Office (BFS). Data on the current situation and development of the society, the economy and the environment in Switzerland is presented. STAT-TAB replaces Superweb, the former statistics database for Switzerland. Data is presented in multidimensional data sets (data cubes) with variables that can be interactively combined. The generated tables can be exported in various formats and re-used locally.

Swiss foreign trade statistics are available via the Swiss-Impex database: Swiss-Impex

Detailed data on several Swiss price indices are available as downloadable tables in .xls format in the Preis-Boutiquen. Click here to see the login and password required to access these files.
