The UC Libraries have recently purchased the Chemical & Engineering News Archives, access to every issue from 1923 to 2011 (2012 will be added shortly).
- Every C&EN article, down to the brief career announcements. Each article is a PDF, with a 150-word HTML abstract preview.
- Browse by issue, or search full-text by keyword, author, title, abstract.
- Search the C&EN Archive on its own, or with any or all of the other American Chemical Society journals.
Because the archive will only be updated annually, Chemical & Engineering News is still your go-to place for keeping up with the current C&EN stories, news and job announcements.
