Critical Reviews in Toxicology

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : Critical Reviews in Toxicology 

From the Taylor & Francis website for the journal:

Critical Reviews in Toxicology provides up-to-date, objective analyses of topics related to the mechanisms of action, responses, and assessment of health risks due to toxicant exposure.  The journal publishes critical, comprehensive reviews of research findings in toxicology and the application of toxicological information in assessing human health hazards and risks.  Toxicants of concern include commodity and specialty chemicals such as formaldehyde, acrylonitrile, and pesticides; pharmaceutical agents of all types; consumer products such as macronutrients and food additives; environmental agents such as ambient ozone; and occupational exposures such as asbestos and benzene.

“Toxicological responses reviewed range from observations at the molecular and cellular level to physiological and pathological alterations in intact mammals and populations of laboratory animals and people.  Responses in all major organ systems are of interest, with emphasis on those responses identified as human diseases or their precursor events.  Particular attention is given to cancer, reproductive, and developmental effects as responses of particular social concern.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 28 (1998) to present.

New e-resource: SpringerMaterials

The University of Cambridge now has access to the SpringerMaterials database via this link:

https://materials.springer.com/

Off campus access is via Shibboleth only.  Please use the “Log in” link top right of the SpringerMaterials home page, then click “Sign in via Shibboleth…”.  Ignore the Athens option and use the Find your institution dropdown/search and select “University of Cambridge ebooks service”.  This will prompt a Raven authentication page for you to sign in using your Raven credentials.   (We expect to offer seamless proxy access via HTTPS in due course.)

SpringerMaterials is a database for identifying material properties, covering data from materials science, physics, physical and inorganic chemistry, engineering and other related fields.  New to the resource is SpringerMaterials Interactive, a set of advanced functionalities for visualizing and analyzing data. Examples of these functionalities include interactive graphs, dynamic data tables, and side-by- side comparisons of materials/properties.

SpringerMaterials supports teaching and learning and research and development in the fields of bulk and fine chemical manufacturing, petroleum and petrochemicals, semiconductors and electronic materials, optical metals, ceramics, polymer synthesis and processing, and materials for fuels and energy application.

The University Library, working closely with the Departments of Chemistry and Engineering and the Betty and Gordon Moore Library, is delighted to provide the SpringerMaterials database after a trial and feedback in the first quarter of 2017 demonstrated its value to the science community in Cambridge.  An FAQ on SpringerMaterials is available here

Nature Reviews Chemistry

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : Nature Reviews Chemistry.

From the Nature website for the journal:

Nature Reviews Chemistry is an online-only journal for the weekly publication of Reviews, Perspectives and Comments in all disciplines within chemistry…

“Our Reviews aim to be balanced and objective analyses of the selected topic – with descriptions of relevant scientific literature and discussions that are easy to grasp for recent graduates in any chemistry-related discipline, as well as informing principal investigators and industry-based research scientists of the latest advances. Reviews should provide the authors’ insight into future directions and their opinion of the major challenges faced by researchers in the field.

“Perspectives – as the name suggests – take a look at a topic from a slightly different angle. They may offer more personal viewpoints, explain the historical background to a topic, or discuss some of the social, ethical or environmental factors related to chemistry research in academia and industry.

“Our Comments address topical issues in chemistry — the aim is to cover subjects that are of interest to chemists generally that are not necessarily focussed on the results or practice of chemistry research. This may include, but is not limited to, discussions of education in chemistry and the practicalities of research outside the academic environment.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (2017) to present.

Access Nature Reviews Chemistry via the Journal Search or from the iDiscover record.

Off campus access enabled for British Standards Online (BSOL)

Access to British Standards Online is now enabled for off campus users via this link.

Both the on and off campus links are available from the Cambridge LibGuides Databases A-Z here.

Records for standards in BSOL will soon be discoverable in iDiscover.   Access via iDiscover will only be available for on campus users (as we cannot at the moment build the off campus link into the iDiscover records).

The University of Cambridge started providing access to British Standards Online from December 2017.  Unfortunately it was not possible to provide both on and off campus access at the time of going live.  BSOL could not be provided for off campus users via our EZproxy server and BSOL has not yet implemented Shibboleth.  The British Standards Institute expect to implement Shibboleth by the end of the third quarter of 2018.  Until they do, we can provide off campus via the above link, but regret we cannot provide both on and off campus access via iDiscover until we can enable EZproxy and Shibboleth with BSI.

If you have any question please write to ejournals@lib.cam.ac.uk.  Thank you.

 

British Standards Online (BSOL)

The University of Cambridge now has on campus access only to the British Standards Online (BSOL) resource at the following URL

http://bsol.bsigroup.com/

Shibboleth access is to be implemented by the British Standards Institute for off campus authentication in the second or third quarter of 2018.  We are working on providing access via EZproxy in the interim.

Access is available via the Cambridge LibGuides Databases A-Z here

http://libguides.cam.ac.uk/az.php?a=b

And records for the standards in BSOL will soon be available in iDiscover and updated weekly.  NB only on campus users will be able to link through to the standards from iDiscover records.

BSOL is an online library of over 90,000 internationally recognized standards with application to a wide range of subjects, from environmental management to IT security, from construction to food safety.
