Reference Detail User Interface Improvements

The reference detail page in CAS SciFinder is being enhanced to provide greater clarity on CAS indexing and make more efficient use of space on the screen.

A new table of contents is present, providing both an overview of the available content and quick navigation to data of interest.


Bibliographic information is presented below the reference abstract and is closed on default. There is an option to view more, and selecting this option creates a sticky preference so that the information is presented in full going forward.



“For You” Enhancements

“For You” has been improved with updated logic to present more recommendations to more users.

Structure Precision Search

Structure search logic has been improved to intelligently decide at runtime whether to use Smartsearch or Conventional structure search algorithms. This improves both the performance of queries and the quality of results.

CAS Lexicon Search Enhancement

The CAS Lexicon search page has been updated with UI enhancements to help guide users through the process of creating a query. The interface now describes the two-step process to identify relevant concepts and add them to a query.
