Trial: CSA Illustrata Natural Sciences
Until mid-April, we have a trial running for CSA Illustrata Natural Sciences.
Why it's unique:
In addition to possessing the ability to search by author names or words in the title or abstracts of articles, CSA Illustrata allows one to search for the content in the figures, tables, maps, and other image data. CSA has actually pulled out words that may have been added on top of lab data photos, as well as content contained in the legends etc. So for the first time you search for illustrations, maps, etc. within articles. This is the ONLY database of scientific literature that possesses this feature.
What does it cover:
Most of the articles are either in biology or medicine. But there is also some coverage of business, psychology, earth sciences, etc., too.
Please give it a try, and let me know what your thoughts are about the usefulness of this resource to you.
