Get to the relevant chemistry literature and data twice as fast

The enormous volume of chemistry data available in peer-reviewed literature, patents and substance databases would not be navigable without an intelligent approach to indexing. Reaxys indexing ensures that every researcher can find the answers they need quickly.

Smart indexing for maximum data discoverability

Indexing means adding terms to define the content in peer-reviewed literature and patents so that the search algorithms can match the right answers with a search query.

In Reaxys, to enable maximum discovery of chemistry data, two indexing processes are used: manual indexing and data excerption for the core chemistry journals, patents and textbook; and a novel, human-like automated indexing process for the broader range of chemistry-related periodicals and patents.

Six sources of indexing terms

Displays relevance of a source - Reaxys |Elsevier Solutions

What’s more, because different scientists approach articles from different perspectives, each record is indexed with terms from 6 sources:

  • Authors (from Scopus)
  • Compendex (for chemical engineering and material science)
  • Embase (for biomedical research)
  • MEDLINE (for biomedical research)
  • GeoBase (for petrochemical and geology research)
  • Reaxys (for every field of chemistry, including pharmacology)

Improving the efficiency of search to save time and advance scientific work

Time is a precious commodity for Dr. Carsten Schauerte, managing director of the chemicals company solid-chem GmbH. Searching for high-quality answers was one of the most timeconsuming tasks for him and his team until he started using Reaxys. Thanks to its smarter chemistry search capabilities, he can accomplish more in less time.
