Welcome to the October 2015 ProQuest Science and Technology content update, focused on keeping you informed of the journal, grey literature, book, and other material in ProQuest’s science and technology collections.

This update contains content changes from July through September 2015, product discontinuation notices, plus the latest enhancements to the ProQuest platform.

New coverage and full text content.

121 ongoing full text publications were added or resumed coverage in ProQuest’s Science and Technology Collections last quarter. These titles add coverage to your existing holdings in engineering, chemistry, medical sciences, agriculture, energy, and other areas. 

Ongoing full text access to the conference proceedings of the American Society for Engineering Management (ASEM), Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, and several other publishers and societies are now available in many ProQuest Science & Technology Collections. Science and engineering students find conference proceedings extremely useful for discovering emerging areas of research long before they are published in journals.

In addition, we’ve also added abstract and indexing coverage for several of Wiley’s WIREs series of interdisciplinary review journals, including WIREs Computational Molecular Science. The WIREs focus on cross-disciplinary research and key topics from diverse perspectives.

Discontinued coverage.

Coverage for 46 A&I scholarly titles from Springer Science & Business Media, and 23 full text publications is no longer available. Additional details can be found here
