Open access therapeutic drug targets database

A new open access database for novel/potential therapeutic drug targets is here. This database contains drug targets, inlcude vaccine targets, reported in published research articles.  All novel drug targets are linked to PubMed, Google Scholar, GeneBank, UniProt, DrugBank, ChemEMBL, Google patents, European patents, WO(PCT) database and Google Patents.

Energy Citations Database

The Energy Citations Database (ECD) provides free access to over 2.6 million science research citations with continued growth through regular updates. There are over 221,000 electronic documents, primarily from 1943 forward, available via the database. Citations and documents are made publicly available by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).

ECD includes scientific and technical research results in disciplines of interest to DOE such as chemistry, physics, materials, environmental science, geology, engineering, mathematics, climatology, oceanography, and computer science. It includes bibliographic citations to report literature, conference papers, journal articles, books, dissertations, and patents.

ECD was created and developed by DOE’s Office of Scientific and Technical Information with the science-attentive citizen in mind. It contains energy and energy‑related scientific and technical information collected by the Department of Energy (DOE) and its predecessor agencies, the Energy Research & Development Administration (ERDA) and the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC).

Therapeutic Drug Targets Database

This is a unique and comprehensive database on therapeutic drug targets. This database contains drug targets reported in US patents or US/International patent applications. The drug targets are also classified according to specific drug types (e.g. small molecule drugs, protein drugs, antibody drugs, siRNA drugs, miRNA drugs etc.) and disease types. The assays and methods used for characterizing each drug targets are listed as well. In addition to this, all the drug targets are linked to PubMed, Google Scholar, GeneBank, UniProt, USPTO database, WO(PCT) database and Google Patents.

Bioprotocols Online

SciClips launched a unique database of bioprotocols for researchers. Researchers will have free access to these bioprotocols which have been extracted from published journal articles and patents/patent applications.

There are thousands of protocols on molecular biology, proteomics, biological imaging, virology, immunology, stem cells, drug discovery, immunoassays, cell biology, epigenetics, genomics, plant biology, microbiology, tissue microarrays and more. In addition to this, there are new sections on high throughput screening (HTS) and biopharmaceutical assay protocols. All the protocols are linked to the articles or patent/patent application .

Indian Citation Index Database (ICI)

Indian Citation Index Database (ICI) is a multidisciplinary research platform primarily intend to perform literature search and multiple angle evaluation using citations similar to international databases like WoS and SCOPUS. Citation databases are specialized Abstracting & Indexing information products used to evaluate, map and measure information contents using citations as the association of R&D ideas. The references that researchers cite in their papers make explicit links between their current research and prior work in the literature archive. Indian Citation Index (ICI) organizes these intellectual links by listing both cited and citing works. Like other indexes, ICI enables users to move back in time to previously published papers, but uniquely one can also look forward in time to determine who has subsequently cited an earlier piece of research.

Indian Citation Index (ICI) is a home grown database, planed to have multidisciplinary information/knowledge contents from about 1000 top Indian scholarly journals. It provides powerful search engine basically to perform search and evaluation for researchers, policy makers, decision makers etc.

At present, it is planned to start with five years back files (depth) which would go over 10 years and beyond in next few month’s time. ICI right now is in zero version stage and its alpha version is being issued for users feedback and comments by 15th January 2010 and thereafter shortly its beta version would be launched. It is also planned and working accordingly that in next few months ICI with full search and analytic features would be served to users for using long awaited essentially needed information product. The ICI is owned by M/s Divan Enterprise for all practical purposes.

SpringerImages- A New Collection of Scientific and Medical Images

SpringerImages is a growing collection of scientific images that spans the scientific, technical and medical fields, including high-quality clinical images from images.MD. The continually updated collection – currently over 1.5 million images – gathers photos, graphs, histograms, figures, and tables, and is available to libraries and their patrons via a searchable online database. The SpringerImages interface enables users to search faster, more broadly and more accurately, through captions, keywords, context and more, even jumping from the image to the source article. Users can create personalized image “sets,” and can easily export images for use in their own presentations or lectures.
