IPSWICH, Mass. -- June 26, 2009. EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO) has launched new display and searching technology designed to improve the user experience. The new system supports natural language searching for scientific formulas and provides users with the ability to store and show html markup allowing display of scientific formulas. The new database architecture means Article names, Abstracts and Key Phrase Headings within citations will contain scientific formulas.

Theoretical study on N2+, P2+, As2+, NP+, NAs+, and PAs+: Hyperfine coupling constants for 12Σ(g)+, and electron-sping-factors for 12Σg+/1,22Σu+(X2+) and 1,22Σ+(XY+) states. Bruna, P.J.; Grein, F. In: Journal of Molecular Spectroscopy, Aug. 2005, vol.232, no.2, pp. 137-50, Journal Paper. (AN: 8727739).

With natural language searching, researchers will find it easier to find relevant information within their searches. For instance, those searching for records related to water are now able to enter "H20" to return the desired records.

Inspec is the first of many databases to utilize this new database architecture.

EBSCO’s Vice President of Engineering, Doug Jenkins, says this new technology will soon expand to other EBSCO Publishing databases. "The underlying search and retrieval improvements to Inspec are part of our continued investment in the EBSCOhost platform. We will extend these features to other aggregated full text products by year end."

As the provider of EBSCOhost, the top platform for STM research, EBSCO continues to make enhancements to create a technologically sophisticated, yet familiar search experience for all of its end-users.
