(Washington, 23 October 2013) The Publications Division of the American Chemical Society (ACS) announced today the completion of a comprehensive undertaking to digitally convert and conserve the supporting information for its broadly subscribed ACS Legacy Archives journals collection.
This initiative is part of the Society’s commitment to broaden the online accessibility of the supporting information and data associated with the ACS Legacy Archives –– a premium collection of nearly half a million original research articles published in ACS journals between the years 1879 and 1995. The digitization effort has generated new supporting information files for 40,000 ACS original research articles, and in total comprises 800,000 pages of highly valuable data and underlying research information.
The recently digitized research material is openly available to any visitor of the ACS Publications website and can be readily downloaded from the abstract page of any ACS Legacy Archive journal article that contains supporting information.
