  • 1.
    • The
    • BIOSIS Previews
    • family
    • Robert Kimberley
    • Director, International Sales & Development, BIOSIS
  • 2. BIOSIS - an overview
    • Founded in 1926
    • Independent, not-for-profit company governed by Board of Trustees
    • World’s largest abstracting and indexing service focused on the life sciences
    • Headquartered in Philadelphia (USA), with office in York (UK) and worldwide sales representation
  • 3. BIOSIS Previews family
    • The world’s most comprehensive reference source of life sciences research
  • 4. BIOSIS Previews family
    • BIOSIS Previews
    • Biological Abstracts
    • BA/Reports, Reviews, Meetings
    • BIOSIS Previews =
    • Biological Abstracts + BA/Reports, Reviews, Meetings
  • 5. BIOSIS Previews family
    • BIOSIS Previews =
    • Biological Abstracts + BA/Reports, Reviews, Meetings
    • Biological Abstracts (BA) = journals
    • BA/Reports, Reviews, Meetings (RRM) = non-journal
    • material
    • BIOSIS Previews (BP) = both
  • 6. Target markets
    • Life Sciences research and teaching
    • biology, botany, zoology,
    • biotechnology (genetics and proteiomics),
    • biochemistry, molecular biology, pharmacology,
    • ecology, environmental studies,
    • agriculture, veterinary science,
    • experimental medicine
  • 7. Target markets
    • Life Sciences research corporations:
        • Pharmaceutical
        • Biotechnology
        • Food industry
        • Agricultural (seeds, chemicals)
        • Biomedical
        • Bioprocessing & fermentation
  • 8. Multi-disciplinary subject coverage
    • Traditional
      • Biology, Botany, Zoology, Ecology, Microbiology
    • Interdisciplinary Areas
      • Molecular Biology; Biotechnology and Genetics; Pharmacology; Plant Sciences, Agriculture and Nutrition; Experimental and Veterinary Medicine, Biomedicine
    • Related Areas
      • Methods, Instrumentation
  • 9. Sources
    • Journals (>5,000 titles) (BA)
    • Meetings (1,500/year) (RRM)
    • Patents (21,000/year) (RRM)
    • Books (500/year) (RRM)
    • Review articles (RRM)
    • Book and software reviews (RRM)
    • International: >90 countries
  • 10. Statistics
      • 560,000 records / year
        • 60% journal literature
        • 30% meetings
        • 10% review articles, patents, books, book chapters, and software reviews
      • >13 million records, 1969 to date
  • 11. Competitive differentiators: coverage & indexing
    • Comprehensive coverage
      • researchers get the breadth and depth of coverage that they need
    • Specialist indexing
      • unified structure for diverse information
      • great depth
      • key benefit: search and retrieval are more effective
  • 12. Competitive differentiators: coverage
    • The only life sciences database to integrate coverage of:
        • conferences and meetings
        • patents
        • journals
    • Integrated coverage also means integrated and consistent indexing for all document types
  • 13. Competitive differentiators: coverage
    • Coverage of meetings in experimental medicine & clinical research is largely absent from Medline and Embase .
    • Patent coverage gives critical information
      • e.g. drug delivery systems, genetic engineering, food technology, crop/livestock production
      • does not try to compete with Derwent, but gives the researcher valuable information from patents alongside journals, meetings etc.
  • 14. Competitive differentiators: coverage
    • 34% of serials covered by BP are covered in MedLine
    • 46% of serials covered by MedLine are covered in BP
    • 34% of serials covered by BP are covered in EMBASE
    • 53% of serials covered by EMBASE are covered in BP
  • 15. Competitive differentiators : specialist indexing
    • Examples :
      • Organisms
        • Taxonomic hierarchy: user can search for individual species, or at more generic level
        • Roles, developmental stages, and other modifiers
        • Parts, structures, systems
      • Chemicals & biochemicals
        • by name(s), or by CAS Registry Number
        • Drug affiliations
        • Gene names and sequence numbers
      • Biological activities
      • MeSH disease terms
  • 16. Competitive differentiators : specialist indexing
    • MC: Molecular Genetics (Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics)
    • OR: human (Hominidae): patient; PC3 cell line (Hominidae): human prostate cancer cells; Gynostemma-pentaphylla (Cucurbitaceae): medicinal plant
    • PS: plasma: blood and lymphatics; urinary tract: excretory system
    • CB: trastuzumab [Herceptin]: antineoplastic-drug, immunologic-drug
    • RN: 180288-69-1: TRASTUZUMAB; 180288-69-1: HERCEPTIN
    • DS: prostate cancer: immunochemotherapy, neoplastic disease, reproductive system disease/male, urologic disease
    • MI: traditional Chinese herbal medicine
  • 17. Competitive differentiators : specialist indexing
    • Example: searching on drug affiliation
    • Use of ibuprofen for fever and headache
      • (IBUPROFEN OR MOTRIN)(L)
      • (ANTIPYRETIC AND ANALGESIC)
      • Include as many affiliations as appropriate
      • Use Authority File for list of affiliations
  • 18. Competitive differentiators : specialist indexing
    • Example: Sequence Data (1998-)
    • Sequence Data includes databank accession numbers or other macromolecular sequence information
    • Display Example:
      • Sequence Data: AF001177: Genbank, amino acid sequence; U89896: Genbank, amino acid sequence, nucleotide sequence
  • 19. Competitive differentiators : specialist indexing
    • Example: Chemicals, biochemicals
    • Chemical names are as they appear in the paper
    • Use link commands for affiliations, e.g.
      • CARBOPLATIN(L)ANTINEOPLASTIC
    • Display example:
      • Chemicals & Biochemicals:
      • gamma-amino-butyric acid [GABA];
      • carboplatin:antineoplastic drug, phase I/II study, drug-drug combination, toxicity
    • Search in Descriptors prior to 1993
  • 20. Competitive differentiators : specialist indexing
    • Example: CAS Registry Numbers (1993-)
    • CAS Registry Numbers assigned to chemicals, followed by chemical name
      • Registry Numbers: 56-12-2: Gamma-Amino-Butyric Acid; 41575-94-4: Carboplatin
    • Search Example:
      • RN=56-12-2
