INDEXING & ABSTRACTING
Value of A&I
 Very comprehensive literature reviews across the entire
discipline – A&I has greater breadth, depth and scope
 International in scope and multilingual (with abstracts in
English)
 Content in A&I databases is not under embargo
 Indexing standards applied to specialist content sets
(such as controlled vocabulary) assist in retrieval of
relevant resources
 Suitability for researchers’ workflow ….
The Value in Abstracts: Limited Time to Scan a
Discipline
 Exponential growth of articles to read per year
 “Faculty report nearly twice as many readings as they
did thirty years ago”
A1 Tenopir,Carol
A1 King,Donald W.
T1 Electronic Journals and Changes in Scholarly Article Seeking and Reading Patterns JF D-Lib Magazine
 Often the scientist’s goal “is not to find an article to read,
but rather to find, assess, and exploit a range of
information by scanning portions of many articles”.

Database

Overwhelmingly cited by a majority of aquatic science librarians as their primary database, the
ASFA series is the premier reference in the field of aquatic resources. Input to ASFA is provided
by a growing international network of information centers monitoring over 7,000 serial
publications, books, reports, conference proceedings, translations and limited distribution
literature. ASFA is a component of the Aquatic Sciences and Fisheries Information System
(ASFIS), formed by four United Nations agency sponsors of ASFA and a network of international
and national partners.
Sources covered include over 3,000 periodicals, conference proceedings, technical reports, trade
journal/newsletter items, patents, books, and press releases.

DEEP INDEXING
Recent Innovations: Deep Indexing
2007 CODiE Award Winner: Best Online
Science & Technology Service
Why Index Tables & Figures?
1. Images are included in Scientific and Technical articles only
because they illustrate something fundamental about the research
field work, experiment findings or conclusions
2. Distilled essence of the research – the closest thing to the raw
datasets
3. Articles with the right kinds of objects quickly establish the
relevance of the related data and findings
4. These objects are most often invisible using traditional articlelevel and full-text searching
Deep Indexing: Indexing
Process
1. Identification of tables and figures
(images, charts, maps, etc.) found
within a scholarly article
2. Extraction of critical data and
information within and surrounding
each table or figure (including full
caption) to provide the indexing
3. Assignment of a category
