Connect to the Database
SciFinder is a research discovery tool, suitable for both professional searchers and research scientists, that allows users to explore the CAS databases containing literature from many scientific disciplines including biomedical sciences, chemistry, engineering, materials science, agricultural science, and more.
As of Jan 2021, COPPUL members also have SciFinder-n access. SciFinder-n includes MethodsNow synthesis (step-by-step full experimental protocols from full-text journals and patents). MethodsNow Analytical is sold separately.
Monthly usage reports are available for key contacts to download on the myCAS website. These reports are now available in Excel (.csv) and .pdf formats. The reports aren’t fully COUNTER compliant yet but the report does address some requirements. The requirement that all usage reports include search metrics has been met with the addition of Commercial Source and Regulatory content metrics.
