Addition of SCAN format to selected STN databases

23. November 2009

To facilitate easier review of search results in a multifile search environment, the DISPLAY SCAN format has been added to the following databases:

EMBAL, EMBASE, LEMBASE, ENCOMPLIT, ENCOMPLIT2, ENCOMPPAT, ENCOMPPAT2, IFICDB, IFIPAT, IFIUDB, MEDLINE, and LMEDLINE.

The DISPLAY SCAN format can be used to view answers from an L-number answer set at no charge. Answers are displayed in a predefined format, in random order, and without answer numbers. The predefined formats vary according to the database.

For more information about these databases, refer to the STN Database Summary Sheet index (http://www.stn-international.de/sum_sheets.html) or STNGuide.
