on Thu, 04/30/2015 - 13:54

IET’s Inspec database reached the milestone of adding the 15 millionth record, an article from a team of researchers from Besançon, France, published in the Elsevier journal Sensors and Actuators B: Chemical. This article joins other great scientific achievements featured by Inspec over the years. Researchers, engineers and scientists can access Inspec using the Engineering Village platform, enabling them to quickly obtain information needed to stay up-to-date, fuel scientific discoveries and maximize research effectiveness.

“The coverage of Inspec is impressive, especially in Physics. This makes Inspec an indispensable addition to the Engineering Village family where it can be searched together with Ei Compendex, providing researchers with unique value like combined thesaurus search, citation information and author profiles.” Cameron Ross, Director of Product Management, A&I Databases at Elsevier.
