Chemistry: A Guide to Non-Library Web Resources: Journal Abbreviations & Directories

Journal Abbreviations

All That JAS: Journal Abbreviation Sources: Chemistry

A registry of Web resources that lists or provide access to the full title of journal abbreviations.

Beyond CASSI

Beyond CASSI contains short journal title abbreviations from the early chemical literature and other historical reference sources that are not listed in the CAS Source Index (CASSI) .  

CAS Source Index (CASSI) Search Tool

CAS Source Index Search Tool (a.k.a. CASSI) can be used to determine journal titles and abbreviations used by CAS in products like SciFinder. CASSI can be searched by title, abbreviation, ISSN, ISBN, and coden.  Journal records include title, abbreviation, language, start date, URL, CODEN, ISSN, and publisher.

Journal Directories

Chemistry Journals.

This Website from the Department of Chemistry at Cambridge University is a very comprehensive list of chemistry journals, with links to their Websites.  It is arranged by publisher, but it can also be "sorted" alphabetically or listed by broad chemistry subject.

Directory of Open Access Journals [DOAJ]

Defining open access journals as “journals that use a funding model that does not charge the readers or their institution for access,” the DOAJ aims to be a comprehensive listing of open access scholarly journals that use a quality control system to guarantee the content.  Journals can be located by title or broad subject.

Free Full-Text Journals in Chemistry.

This list contains links to chemistry journals that are "permanently" free and online. There are also a links to trials and temporarily available chemical journals, and chemistry journals in Russian.

Journal Supporting or Supplemental Information

Supporting Information

The American Chemical Society journals contain Supporting Information for both the ACS Legacy Archives (1879 - 1995) and current ACS journal articles (1995 - present).  Supporting Information includes tabular data, illustrations and diagrams, spectroscopic and crystallographic results, detailed experimental procedures, software programming code, biological test data, and mathematical derivations, and is available from an article's landing page.

Electronic Supplementary Information (ESI)

The Royal Society of Chemistry (UK) created this Website to provide authors with assistance in preparing ESI for RSC journal articles.  Supplementary Information is available from an artilce's landing page.
