Inspec adds 154 Wiley journals to its market leading database

The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) has announced that articles from 154 Wiley journals will be indexed by Inspec, its market-leading abstract and indexing research tool. This includes the respected journal, Chemical and Engineering Technology.

The indexing of these titles will begin later this year and will deliver thousands of new articles to Inspec users, bringing the total number of Wiley titles included to 338.

Duncan Campbell, Director, Digital Licensing and Sales Partnerships, Wiley, said: “Wiley is delighted to partner with IET to expand the number of Wiley journals available in Inspec.

“We are committed to ensuring that our high-quality journal content is indexed in all relevant abstract and indexing services so that researchers can find the content they need as quickly as possible. Inspec brings a level of quality and excellence to the indexing process that is second to none, thanks to nearly 50 years’ experience in developing and refining the renowned Inspec thesaurus, thereby providing a much richer user experience while driving greater visibility and usage of our content.”

Inspec has long been respected as the most authoritative resource for pinpointing important literature across the fields of physics, electronics, computing and engineering and is the index of choice for over 95% of the world’s top engineering departments. Recent new content additions include dissertations from ProQuest, articles from over 450 open access journals and e-prints from arXiv.

Vincent Cassidy, IET Head of Academic Markets, said: “Wiley’s distinguished history as a major global publisher of academic research has seen the company make significant investments to ensure that content is accessible and discoverable by their millions of users.

“With a sizeable portfolio in scientific and technical disciplines, Wiley’s decision to submit more journals to the Inspec database underpins the academic market’s continued faith and belief in abstract and indexing solutions as key tools in the research workflow. We’re delighted to be able to provide this service to Wiley and our other content partners.”
