EBSCO has launched new searching technology to support natural language searching for scientific formulas. The new database architecture means article names, abstracts and key phrase headings within citations will contain scientific formulas.
That means it will be easier to find articles such as this:
Theoretical study on N2+, P2+, As2+, NP+, NAs+, and PAs+: Hyperfine coupling constants for 12Σ(g)+, and electron-sping-factors for 12Σg+/1,22Σu+(X2+) and 1,22Σ+(XY+) states. Bruna, P.J.; Grein, F. In: Journal of Molecular Spectroscopy, Aug. 2005, vol.232, no.2, pp. 137-50, Journal Paper. (AN: 8727739).
This type of natural language search will make it easier for researchers to find relevant information within their searches.
So far Inspec is the first of EBSCO’s databases to utilize this new feature.
