Reload of FSTA Database

22. May 2012

The Food Science and Technology Abstracts database (FSTA) was reloaded on May 19, 2012 with some changes and enhancements.

  • Classification Codes are now indexed including their subsections. In case there are any classification codes within your search queries, you should adjust the search in order to cover all subsections (e.g., change S A/CC to S A#/CC).
  • The latest version of the FSTA thesaurus is now available.
  • Simultaneous left and right truncation (SLART) has been added to abstract (/AB) and title (/TI) fields.
  • DOIs are available.
  • The Numeric Property Search feature is implemented.

For additional information on the reload, enter HELP RLOAD at an arrow prompt (=>) in FSTA.
