Find your chemical information in ACS Publications

ACS Publications, including Sci Finder,  are the go-to resources for any research involving  chemistry, writes Nhan Le, a subject librarian from the Library's Science faculty team.

It has been said that chemistry, within our own times, has become a central science, from which all things emanate, and to which all things return*. The American Chemical Society (ACS) concurs with this mantra.

Monash University Library subscribes to all ACS Publications.  The database consists of:
  • Journals  -  nearly 50 peer-reviewed journals contain cutting-edge articles across a broad spectrum of scientific disciplines. The ACS began the publication of chemical research with the Journal of the American Chemical Society in 1879.
  • Chemical & Engineering News  - the weekly trade magazine
  • eBooks - the peer-reviewed ebooks contain essential research conducted by the world's leading scientists across all disciplines and applications. They now include more than 1,400 titles developed from ACS-sponsored symposia. Approximately 30 new ebooks are published each year.
Selected features
  •  Browse the Journal  - this option allows researchers to browse the journal via either “List of Issues”, or precisely select a specific issue of interest via the option “Select Decade”, “Select Volume”, then “Select Issue”
  •  Article ASAP (As Soon As Publishable),  that are edited and published online ahead of issue
  • Graphical abstracts, which are displayed on the journal table of contents
  • SciFinder database,  that can be accessed directly on the article level.
Also, when searching in SciFinder, if a graphical abstract is displayed on the search results page, researchers can be sure that the reference is one of the ACS journal articles. Therefore researchers can access it electronically.

You can access all the scholarly material on ACS Publications through the Library-managed subscription - via Search or the Databases - chemistry page.

ACS Publications and Figshare

As ACS Publications partners with Digital Science’s Figshare** to promote open data discovery and use, the scientific community can expect to retrieve chemistry-related datasets on the Figshare research data management tool.
